Activities to do in and around Sodwana Bay

activities, scuba diving, game parks, safaris

As well as having the best diving in the planet we offer many other activities to keep you busy during your stay with us.

A stunning scenic drive away is Lake Sibaya, South Africa's second largest freshwater lake with a mighty 70 square km surface area!  Sibaya roughly translated means fence that holds the cows in - Hippos being sea cows.  There are many diverse plant species here and plenty of wildlife and birds for you to see.  Amongst the dune forest there is a magnificent Ficus Bubu for all the tree lovers.  We like to take a cooler box and go for sundowners on the shores or on a no dive day we may spend the day there and braai.  Join our Triton family and jump on one of our cruisers for this awesome  Sodwana experience.

Closer by we have Lake Mngobosileni which is a popular spot with the locals to watch the sunset.  From this viewpoint you can see the Indian Ocean behind the lake and watch the sunset over the rural African landscape, just ask us and we will happily take you for sundowners.

Quad Biking - Take an exhilarating guided tour through the breathtaking rural countryside to the shores of Lake Sibaya.  

Whale Watching - (seasonal)   In winter (June - October) we have several species of whales regularly passing by on their annual migrations.  The most common whales to pass our shores are the humpbacks travelling to tropical waters to give birth and then back to the Antarctic to feed.  From the shore or our dive boats you can see them giving spectacular displays of breaching esepcially  the playful calves.

​Turtle Tours - (seasonal)  In summer (November - May) you have the unique chance to see the ancient nesting rituals of Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles, these two species nest along our coastline and into Southern Mozambique   The turtle research centre in Bhanga Nek within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and close to the border of Mozambique is the oldest turtle monitoring project in the world.
