    Safari Details

    This incredible photographic expedition will see us joining Chris and Monique Fallows to observe and photograph the famous and uniquely intense natural predation behaviour between the Great White Shark and the Cape Fur Seal.

    Natural Predation and Breaching is Chris and Monique’s specific area of expertise and having witnessed and recorded just over 9500 predatory events in the last 18 years they form a valuabel part of this expedition.

    The dates for this expedition have been chosen over what is historically the most intense natural predatory activity period at Seal Island.

    Each morning will be spent on the waters around Seal Island and the afternoons will then see us either photographing the charismatic and very photographic African Jackass Penguins around Boulder’s Beach Lodge or some of Cape Town’s most iconic landmarks.

    Day 2

    We will rise early for a quick cup of coffee and then transfer to Simon’s Town where we will meet the Apex Predators crew for a safety briefing at 06h30.  The morning will be spent on the waters around Seal Island where we will, for between 3 to 4 hours, focus exclusively on Great White Shark predation and the other species of mammals and birds that form a part of this amazing natural spectacle.  After returning to land we will freshen up back at the lodge and the, later int he afternoon, head out to Blouberg Strand from where we will photograph Table Mountain, one of South Africa’s most iconic natural landmarks.  Dinner and overnight at Boulder’s Beach Lodge.

    Day 3

    The morning will again be spent around Seal Island.  Each morning will be unique and, depending on the group, we will have the time to cage dive with the Great White Sharks which makes for an incredible experience and very unique underwater photographic opportunities.  After again freshening up and recharging at the lodge we will head out to Cape Point to photograph the landscapes around Africa’s most southwestern tip of Africa.  Dinner and overnight at Boulder’s Beach Lodge.

    Day 4

    The morning will again be spent around Seal Island while the afternoon will be spent focusing our attention on the unique behaviour of the breeding colony of African Jackass Penguins and the photographic opportunities this presents around Boulder’s Beach.  For our last dinner we will head out to a restaurant in the heart of Simon’s Town.  Overnight at Boulder’s Beach Lodge.

    Day 5

    Our last morning will again be spent in the waters around Seal Island as we set out to once again capture the amazing scenes that unfold as Great White Sharks hunt Cape Fur Seals.  There will again be time to do more cage diving if you are keen.  After visiting the Apex Predators office and gallery we will enjoy breakfast at Boulder’s Beach Lodge and check out to make our way back home after an incredible Wild Eye adventure.

    Nestled against Table Mountain National Park and en route to Cape Point, the lodge boasts beautiful beaches and spectacular views over False Bay.

    The twelve roomed hotel is nestled into Boulders Beach at the entrance to the famous Simons Town penguin colony. Forming part of the Table Mountain National Park, this is one of the few sites where the vulnerable African Penguin can be observed at close range, and is considered one of Cape Town’s top 10 attractions.

    Here the penguins are plentiful and have adapted to a existence with humans, enabling visitors to observe them in their natural environment.

    Penguins can even be found walking around the lodge and restaurant at times!
