Rock pool at Phinda South Africa

Scuba Diving in Kwazulu Natal

The best place for scuba diving, amongst our recommended places to stay in KwaZulu Natal, is from Phinda – a luxury safari lodge close to the Indian Ocean on the north east coast of South Africa.

Diving the reefs of Sodwana Bay allows you the opportunity to experience a portrait of marine diversity, with approximately 1,200 species of fish and spectacular coral formations. A PADI qualification is a must for this activity.

Mixing in some diving with your Big Five safaris is a wonderful blend of land and sea adventures.  Particularly if, during your stay, you also head out in a canoe to explore the Mzinene River.
