An absolute must! I went alone and had a good two plus hours in the car to get all worked up and anxious. There was no need for it at all. Great Whites are not nearly as scary as the media makes them out to be. They are quite mesmerizing and I found it to be quite a meditative experience.

It was wonderful to peek into the lives of these wonderful apex predators. This trip was amazing. White Shark Projects were well organised, they made us all feel very welcome. They even took care of our mom whilst we went diving.

I was very curious about how this would be going. After all I have to say it was an excellent experience. I was not sure about whether I should enter the cage but after all the explanations by the staff I decided to go and I did not regret it. I felt safe all the time. I can only recommend... More

I was part of a group of 4 (2 couples). We was very apprehensive about booking this trip, especially online, but the contact was fantastic. They rang at the agreed time the day before to schedule our arrival, breakfast was delicious, the safety briefing was clear and concise and our expectations for the day were set. We all had ample...

There are a multitude of shark cage operators in Gansbaai. Fortunately we were referred by Maplanga Africa to White Sharks Projects and they did not disappoint. These guys know their stuff, spot on directions, well organised, personal welcome, plenty food and drinks ( probably not really all necessary) and with a slick departure we were on the shark zone in...
