Those seeking a “rush of adrenaline” from their holiday in South Africa may like to consider swimming alongside great white sharks around the country’s Cape Peninsula.According to Dive Worldwide, divers taking in the local marine life will find a host of “spectacular” creatures, from sharks to penguins to dolphins to seals.

And for holidaymakers who do not wish to jump in the water, there are also opportunities to observe the sea-faring animals from the comfort of a boat.

The best time to observe great white sharks is between May and September, but the best time to book such a trip is right now, Dive Worldwide suggested, due to the currently “favourable” exchange rate between the pound and the rand.

Further information on white shark diving is available on the White Shark Conservation, Education and Exploration Society’s website.

The organisation claims to have logged more contact with the big fish than any other group in the world.
