Reviews for The great white shark conservation project in South Africa


review 5 Oct 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The range of emotions that I experienced....From the guy who was waiting for me in the airport (he thought I wasn't coming and gave me a big bear hug of a welcome) to meeting the guys at the White Shark project and the welcome I got...put a big smile on my face. To being so upset and angry in the one day(Walking dogs from the pound to picking up trash in Gansbaai harbour). My first boat trip and been in at seeing my first ever shark in the wild. To the beauty and ruggedness of the coast just took my breath away. And to the people, from the guys on the project to the people I met in pubs, shops restaurants and in general....lovely, lovely people. The whole trip from start to finish was a revelation and will stick with me for the rest of my life.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for early starts (5,5:30am). Hard work...if you are prone to seasickness bring some anti nausea tablets...the sea can rock and roll at times. This is not a "Sit in the Sun" holiday. Embrace, enjoy and take it all in.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I hope I did my bit, Eat in the local bars, shops and tried to say Hi all the time.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

10/10, 5 stars......Highly recommended.
