Whale/shark watching in march?

Jump to last reply

I am going to South Africa with my family ( my wife, two kids aged 5 and 9)in march 2014, my wife really wanna see whales and the shark-cage diving, but I can see on various websites that march isn't the best time. But is there anywhere in South Africa in march where there is a (slight) chance that we could go whale-watching or shark-cage diving?

We will rent a car, we have 6 weeks, do we have to book accommodation in advance or could we just turn up? I am still trying to decide if we should rent a 4x4 with camping equipment and stay at campsites or take a normal car and stay in lodges, We will go to Kruger, St.Lucia wetland, Cape Town, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi and hopefully lots of other great places:)
