To make it even more special is that you will be enjoying a safari on route to one of the most pristine beaches along the east coast of Africa to join our team of specialist Snorkeling guides on our 2 hour long Cape Vidal Snorkeling Adventure.
After building up an appetite in the water you will return to a magical traditional braai lunch.
The day then eventually ends off with another slow safari back to your lodge in St Lucia.
Our famous guide will collect you from your Lodge at the pre arranged time. From your lodge in St Lucia it is only a 5 minute drive to the entrance gate of the Eastern Shore where your Safari will start.
Your morning will be filled with informative conversation about the park and its ecology as well as the biology and social behaviours of the animals that you will encounter along the way to the very popular beach of Cape Vidal.
Common sightings along the way include: Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino, Leopard, Hyena, Waterbuck, Kudu, Reedbuck, Red and Common Duiker, Bushbuck, Wildebeest and Zebra.
On arrival in Cape Vidal you will be introduced to our highly experienced and rated marine crew! Here they will give you an in depth safety briefing on exactly what to expect and how to behave in the current conditions. They will hand you all the needed equipment and give you a couple of tips on how to use them correctly.
From here it is into the water for just more than an hour where our guides will be pointing out all sorts of interesting species of fish, crayfish and octopus. Turtles are also a great highlight on lucky adventures!
The Snorkeling Adventure afterwards get rounded off with a lovely warm drink and an insightful fish id session with our guides.
After working up an appetite in the water your safari guide
will be waiting for you in the picnic site with a mouthwatering braai!
Lunch generally consist of steak, boerewors, salads, bread rolls and a surprise desert on the fire.
