African Safari and Scuba Diving

I would love to combine an excellent land safari with excellent scuba diving without breaking the bank. Any suggestions?

Win a lottery!

I too have been searching for a reasonably priced combo-tough to find.

Maybe a truck journey thru Malawi/Zambia & a dive trip in Mozambique.

Where are you writing from? Scuba diving is one of the better deals here. Safaris are reasonable too though peak season is just about here. If you are reading prices like R150 or R200 per night, try using a currency converter to see just how reasonable they are right now. Or write me. I'll put something together for you and you can use it to shop around and compare.

A reasonably priced safari & scuba diving experience can be combined in South Africa's far northern Kwazulu-Natal province, by using lodges such as Ndumo Wilderness Camp and Rocktail Bay; there are several other safari options in the area. Rocktail Bay has a fully equipped Mares diving centre.

The scuba diving at both Malindi---north of Mombasa and the Pemba finshing channel is excellent. There are scuba shops at both places and accommodations nearby. I was floored by the beaches of Kenya when I was there. The divin at Malindi is exceptional---the hotel is called Hemingways and the dive shop is adjacent.

The best Diving place you cant forget and your Memories will linger with you forever is at Pemba Channel. We have been in Pemba and Zanzibar after our Tanzania Wildlife Safaris. Everything is organized at Hotel . Get intouch with this outfitter for price and more info.

We did not do both due to baggage weight restrictions since we also flew to the Seychelles and Kenya Air was really strict about weight. When we were at Pemba, however, we could easily have arranged a safari to Samburu for a few days and some who had flown in early did just that. I think the Masai Mara is also close and you are right on the Tanzanian border when you are at Pemba. BUT it used to be that you could not go from Kenya direct to Tanzania. You would have to check on that.Ellen

we just did the trip combining kichwa tembo camp in the masai mara (kenya) and then fundu lagoon on pemba island (zanzibar). would not have changed a thing about the trip...that amazing. saw the great migration and the diving in pemba channel was outstanding. it was not cheap but definately worth it.
