Swimming with Whale Sharks in Mozambiqueby Tania Wheeler

Whale Shark Mozambique

'Everyone' talks about Great White Shark cage diving in South Africa. Yep - it's great, don't get me wrong. But who wants to be in a cage in freezing water when you can swim right next to another giant of the ocean, the Whale Shark, just 'up the road' in the warm waters of Mozambique!

Experiencing marine life in their natural environment is a unique and unforgettable experience and the magnificent Whale Shark in particular is a spectacular sight to behold. Divers, snorkelers and swimmers come to Mozambique to swim with the placid and giant Whale Sharks that frequent the waters of the beautiful coastline. These gentle giants swim near the surface feeding on plankton so they make excellent photographic subjects and ideal swimming partners.

The small town of Praia do Tofo is the home to the largest concentration of Whale Sharks in Africa so go on - go and check it out!
