Where can you safely swim with a GREAT WHITE SHARK?!

A friend who has experienced this excursion highly recommended a company called Marine Dynamics. I’ve included their website below… http://www.sharkwatchsa.com/en/home/

Where can you chill with PENGUINS on a BEAUTIFUL BEACH?!

On the far left is a close friend, Alida Moore!  She has been living in South Africa for a few months.  Alida gave me a few recommendations of places/things to do/see while visiting South Africa.

Here is what Alida said about Boulders Beach, “A must see are the penguins at Boulder Beach in Simon’s Town (about a 45 minute train ride from Cape Town). The train goes right along the shore and if you time it just right, you can watch the sunset over the ocean. There are plenty of hostels in the area where you can stay the night and then the next morning head over to Boulder Beach to swim with the penguins! (It’s only 40 R to get in – about $5). On your way back from the beach you should stop at the Tibetan Tea House for delicious chai, a calming atmosphere, and great food.”
