2012 International Aquarium Congress: Experience South Africa
Although you may be travelling to South Africa to discuss, interrogate and reach consensus around aquarium issues, a trip to explore the country is highly recommended. If you’re one of the early birds heading to this diverse country and are in need of some ideas, or whether you fall in love and want to spend a few days longer (it happens), we have put together 12 special travel packages through which you can explore beautiful South Africa.
South Africa has three world class international airports from which you can enter and leave the country: Cape Town International Airport (Cape Town), OR Tambo Airport (Johannesburg) and King Shaka International Airport (Durban). The 2012 International Aquarium Congress (IAC) is offering tour packages to each of these regions, making it convenient for you if you are already travelling in the area.
What’s a trip to Africa without seizing the opportunity to see the Big Five in their natural environment atop open vehicle? Visit one of our amazing wildlife sanctuaries or parks, which boast unrivalled game viewing and diversity.
A region of immense beauty, unparalleled views, natural landscapes. Enjoy whale watching, a journey to the Cango Caves, leisure time in Knysna, an up-close-and-personal encounter with elephants. Or visit “Africa’s jewel”, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, with a tailored and convenient tour. Over two nights and three days, you’ll be treated to a guided tour of Victoria Falls, a walk through the magnificent rainforest and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi.
The juxtaposition of the concret jungle with the natural environment lures the visitor to the beaches and natural landmarks. You can also enjoy exploring local aquariums and diving with marine creatures, or taking in a show.
South Africa is a land of culture and no more so that then beautiful KwaZulu-Natal coast. Experience rural living and the traditions of the Zulu people, learn to make traditional weapons or explore the rich biodiversity of the inland. Visitors can also learn the history of the Zulu people.
Marine Big 5 Seafari is an educational marine “seafari” in beautiful False Bay with Apex Shark Expeditions. The marine Big Five – common dolphin, Cape fur seal, African penguin, great white shark and the southern right whale – can all be seen near Seal Island, Africa’s largest island bound seal colony, home to an incredible 65 000 Cape fur seals. Part of the tour includes viewing Great white sharks from the boat.
