Vula Tours, based in Nelspruit, has been offering Kruger Park safaris to visitors from all over the world since 1996. Ours is the ultimate Kruger experience and we have a wide and exciting selection of Kruger Park safaris for our guests to choose from. Our safaris are conducted in the classic, open air safari vehicle which provides extra height to make wildlife viewing a lot easier. Each Kruger National Park safari is guided by a professional guide who has the knowledge and experience to teach you all about the park and its numerous inhabitants. Our safaris packages will provide you with a once in a lifetime experience, and along with the packages we have on the website, we are also more than happy to create a customised safari, which gives guests the option of staying overnight in the park, or staying in one of the many comfortable lodges and guesthouses close to the Kruger. Unlike other tour operators who only depart from Hazyview, we offer Kruger game drives from Nelspruit, White River and Malelane as well.
Experience the magic of the African bush with a two-hour game drive on our 2,200 hectare reserve at the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Our knowledgeable game rangers will enthral you with interesting facts about the wildlife you will view on your safari.
Plett Game Reserve is now home to four of Africa’s famous Big 5, with the recent arrival of elephants to complement the buffaloes, rhinos and leopards. You will also encounter many species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodiles.
Birdlife at the game reserve is also abundant, as are the smaller buck and other wild animals that inhabit this protected area of the Garden Route.
Our experienced rangers are always happy to impart information on any of the wild animals you spot.

The Garden Route is a popular and scenic stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa. It stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River which is crossed along the N2 coastal highway over the Paul Sauer Bridge in the extreme western reach of the neighbouring
Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty:- perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time. Or their powerful predatory behaviour instilling pure fear in our hearts. Or perhaps it is the mysteries surrounding this spectacular shark that beckons us to come closer and closer.
If you are one of those who would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them and us. You have come to the right place.
A Typical Day Diving With Sharks
Meet at our office next to the yacht club.
Have breakfast while chatting to us and a safety briefing.
Board the boat and ride to the shark site.
Wait for some sharks to appear!
We meet at our office at the commercial slip next door to the yacht club. We like out clients to be there an hour before launch time so you can relax, have some breakfast, chat to our staff and listen to the safety and boat trip briefing.
The trip from the dock to the shark site is only about ten minutes so there is no long and tedious boat ride. In fact, Mossel Bay has the most accessible white sharks in the world. The bay is also very protected so our sea conditions are normally very calm and comfortable. The crew will provide a briefing concerning the cage diving on the boat.
To find the sharks we have to bait and chum. The baits and chum are natural marine products. We do not use anything that is not natural to the sharks and the environment. It can take several minutes or several hours for the first shark to appear and while we enjoy a high success rate, you need to understand that nothing is guaranteed.
Once we have sharks at the boat, the cage will go into the water and the diving will begin. Topside viewing is exciting for the non-diver and as the shark works very close to the surface you will have plenty of opportunity to take some action shots.
This is not a jaws movie set so we do our best not to have the sharks banging into the boat and cage as this injures them and produces a false impression.
A trip generally lasts for +- four hours and we offer a light lunch, snacks and drinks on the boat and there is plenty of opportunity to chat to our staff and ask questions. Upon return to the dock, we offer afternoon tea and hand out the certificate of the day to all our guests.
