    2012-01-31

    Travelers with no fear and a thirst for adventure may be looking for the next thrilling activity to conquer on a vacation abroad. Those who love to dive underwater and get up close and personal with marine life could consider a journey to Gansbaai, South Africa, to try an exciting and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    One tour group based in the area actually encourages guests to take a trip out into the open ocean to swim with the great white sharks, reports Business Today. Scuba divers sail on a catamaran five miles off the mainland and go underwater in large steel cages. They are then surrounded by massive sharks as the guides offer fish food to the ravenous aquatic carnivores.

    The beautiful region of Gansbaai also has a plethora of other great activities and entertainment options to enjoy while visiting South Africa, which may make for a fascinating and active getaway. According to the area's tourism website, the possibilities are endless when it comes to outdoor adventures, including whale watching, hiking, kayaking and cave tours.
