Best time of year: All year round.

Please note, the Sharks, especially the Whale Sharks, have not read this timetable and have no idea where they are meant to be and when!

This itinerary is unique to Southern Africa. Where else in the world can you experience Africa’s “Big 5” lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo and the next day be in tropical Mozambique about to dive with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. This itinerary is also ideal for a diver with a non-diving partner. We can tailor this itinerary by extending your wildlife safari or the time spent diving on the pristine tropical coral reefs of Mozambique.

  • The skipper’s decision is final and is based purely on your safety and comfort.

When diving anywhere in South Africa or Mozambique, please don’t expect to do more than 2 dives a day. By noon, along the entire east coast of southern Africa the wind tends to pick up quite a bit, causing white caps on the ocean and making diving conditions difficult and even dangerous. As all dives are drift dives, it’s very difficult for the skipper of the Rubber Duck to spot the buoy in rough conditions and even more difficult to spot individual divers as they surface after their dive. The first dive of the day is usually scheduled for sunrise with the second dive of the day being scheduled after surface interval time and breakfast, at about 10h30. By noon, when the wind has picked up, all dives for the day have been completed. If by chance there is no wind, then a 3rd or even 4th dive might be possible, but this is very unlikely. The wind tends to drop by about 17h00, and if it does, then there is the possibility of a night dive. But this can only be confirmed on the day, at about mid-afternoon.

Remember when diving anywhere off the coast of Mozambique you are thousands of kilometers from the nearest medical facility and recompression chamber with the result that all dive operators in Mozambique do not allow "pushing the limits" and prefer to err on the side of caution, so as to minimise the possibility of any dive accidents. There is no technical diving or deep de-co diving in Mozambique. 

Please note: The Kruger National Park falls within a “low risk” Malaria area, and Mozambique falls within a “high risk” Malaria area, and we strongly suggest that you consult your doctor about which is the best prophylactic to use to prevent contracting this disease
