The more intrepid traveller flying to South Africa over the coming months may wish to experience diving with the Ragged-tooth sharks.

Between June and September, holidaymakers in the Aliwal Shoal region of South Africa, could have the opportunity to dive with these three to four metre-long fish.

In the USA, the animals are known by the name of the North Carolina Tiger Shark and the Grey Nurse Shark in Australia.

“The site is one of the most popular in the world, offering an exquisite dive even without the sharks,” said event guide site, WhatsOnWhen.

Located 40 kilometres south of Durban, the sharks spend these months mating in the coral reef so are “relatively docile” and safe enough to swim with in a cage.

The site is also home to a huge variety of tropical sea life throughout the year.

According to Aliwalshoal.com, the area has been recognised as one of the top ten dive sites in the world.
