Best Diving Destinations in Africa

Bordering the Indian Ocean, just south of the equator, are the exotic tropical coastlines of Kenya and Tanzania. The best diving in all of East Africa can be found on remote Pemba Island, north of Zanzibar. Then there is Madagascar with great diving on the north east side of the island. Or opt for shark diving and catch a flight to South Africa. For more remote and adventurous water entries go to the beautiful Mozambique!

Or think of diving in fresh water in the Great Rift Valley of Africa with 500 species of fresh water tropical fish! Dive Lake Malawi, a 23,000 square km lake in the small country of Malawi. See lots of small fish and play with lake otters!

For another special fresh water dive, go to Zimbabwe and plunge into the Chinhoyi caves, a definite experience of a lifetime.
