This was an outstanding experience start to finish. Our guide picked us up punctually in Cape Town, and our ride to Gansbaai was comfortable. The handoff to the shark diving tour was seamless and smooth. The actual diving was amazing. We saw 7-8 copper sharks repeatedly. Incredible. Ride home with our guide, Dave, was smooth again. He was an excellent source of information and warm conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Highly recommend!

We got to see sharks which was awesome! It was so much fun. Our tour guide was so nice and knowledgable. They really went to of our way to make sure we were happy. However, it did say in the description in the tour that we would also stop at one of three places either a vineyard, a hike or visit penguins. We didn't do any of that nor was that even offered to us. It was a long day because the shark place was 2.5 hours away, however I would have preferred that it wasn't even in the description then. I was looking forward to either the penguins or the hike. That was the only downside.

Mike was very prompt for the early morning pickup and attentive to our needs for the shark diving adventure. He kept our bags safe while we went out on the boat to see the sharks in the area. The great white sharks aren't promised, but we did see many sharks that were very close to the cage!! After diving, Mike took us on a scenic ride back and stopped at a winery for a tasting because we had expressed interest. We also stopped to pet the cheetahs at the Cheetah conservation. A very special time in Cape Town and a highly recommended Born in Africa tour company and Mike the guide.

Mike was an awesome tour guide for the Shark Cage Diving. He picked us up early morning and we arrived plenty early. He watched our backpacks and was very interesting to talk with. One they way back we took a different scenic route and stopped at a winery for a tasting. Mike made sure we had what we needed from the tour and then some! Highly recommend Out of Africa for your tour guides!

Dave was an incredible tour guide! He picked us up from our location for our Shark Diving tour - he answered all questions we had about the tour, provided us with WONDERFUL conversation and made sure we were comfortable at all times. During our tour, we saw 5 Great White sharks, 20+ Copper head sharks, seals and a Southern right whale - it was a fantastic day! He was extremely polite, respectful and really fun - he truly was a huge part in making our trip to South Africa so fantastic! I cannot recommend this company enough - not only was Dave respectful and courteous, but extremely kind, professional and light hearted. .... as a bonus, he also owns a sleek JAG, which is what you will be picked up in!
