Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa offers the best shark cage diving in the world: attracting these awesome predators as they hunt for birds, penguins and seals. Look these hunters right in the eye and feel your adrenalin surge as you make memories you’ll keep for a lifetime.
No diving experience is needed and you’ll never be more than a metre below the surface, completely protected in a metal cage. We work in partnership with Marine Dynamics, conducting the tour on our luxury boat along with the help of a dedicated marine biologist. You can also view the sharks from an elevated viewing deck instead of a cage.
Secluded without being isolated, many amazing activities are included such as horse riding, 4x4 safari and nature walks.
We loved the location immensely, it worked well being near the shark dive we did at Gansbaai.
Luxury with nature to enjoy - Home of the "Marine Big 5" and with unparalleled floral diversity.
We went shark cage diving, believe me it is worth every minute and cent. Such a privilege to see the great white in their natural environment!
Wonderful experience - we went off-site for the whale watching and shark cage excursion.
We welcome South Africans and invite you to experience Grootbos with our special offer.
The last year has been a busy one at Grootbos. We rebuilt our beloved Garden Lodge entirely and re-opened it in April 2022. We also officially launched the Grootbos Florilegium - Africa's first contemporary florilegium - which is a collection of botanical illustrations created by local and international artists, depicting the charismatic plants found on our reserve and the surrounding regions.
