The best budget option in Sodwana
Coral Divers is a PADI 5-star Gold Palm IDC and National Geographic Dive Centre situated in Sodwana Bay, one of the crown jewels of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park.
A Mecca for travelling divers, Sodwana is home to a vast array of unspoilt coral reefs. Gear up, dive in and enter this mind-boggling, diverse aquatic kingdom of Indo-Pacific fish and invertebrates.
Got that sinking feeling? No worries. Coral Divers provides all levels of PADI scuba instruction from Bubble Maker to Instructor Development Courses. They also offer dive charters and comfy accommodation with rustic bush camp charm. Cabins and safari tents are set in a dense bird-rich coastal forest, home to a number of small mammals including bush babies and mongooses.
Power up with a buffet breakfast, go to dive school, and when you’re all dived out at the end of the day, unwind in the bar with a pre-dinner snack from their take-out menu.
And if diving’s not your thing? No worries. Sodwana is packed with land-based fun from quad biking and paintballing to rhino or buffalo tracking in Makhasa Game Reserve.
