Photo Gallery: South Africa

BBC_header1.jpg

In our Gallery feature, we let the photos tell the story… Each Gallery showcases a selection of outstanding images on a chosen theme, taken by our Underwater Photography Editor Nick and Deputy Editor Caroline of Frogfish Photography. This time they look at South Africa.

We have been lucky enough to have visited South Africa on a few occasions, diving from as far south as Cape Town all the way up the eastern coastline to Sodwana Bay near the Mozambique border. We have led trips to see the Sardine Run, to combine diving with safaris and to cover our Wining & Diving series of articles. It is an incredible country packed with exciting adventures both above and below the waves.

Exploring the kelp forest, we had our eyes peeled looking for Sevengill Sharks, but were not lucky on this occasion

Cape Fur Seals are curious and really cute. Great fun to dive with.
