Cape Vidal Beach Safaris
The waters of Cape Vidal are warm, thanks to their being part of the Indian Ocean, and are teeming with marine animal- and plant life. The snorkelling safaris are paired with a game drive to ensure that visitors get to see the maximum number of species and the most variety during their excursion.
The game drive is conducted in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, in an open safari vehicle to ensure that passengers are able to see as much as possible, while remaining safe. An experienced guide takes the lead and offers interesting information and experience to add value to this adventure.
Once visitors arrive at Cape Vidal, they are given snorkelling equipment and invited to cool down and see what lies below the surface of the waters. These waters may be dangerous at times due to tides. This means that a qualified guide is absolutely essential.
After a dip in the water, enjoy a barbecue on the beach, along with a game of Frisbee or a relaxing suntan on a towel under the warm South African sun (sunscreen is always essential). The peacefulness of the water and the variety that lies beneath its surface is a very special sight, and demands that guests to Lake St Lucia who embark on this safari never forget the beauty that they have experienced.
This adventure takes the best part of a day, and is fantastic for groups of friends or families that want to enjoy the area in a way that is personal and exciting. A briefing session before the safari and the permanent guide mean that it is safe, and that visitors are informed at all times. It is an activity that can be done all year around, thanks to temperate weather conditions, and does not require snorkeling experience.
