This July, One&Only Cape Town will introduce Ocean Photography Safaris for adventure-seeking guests who relish the thought of getting up close and personal with a legendary apex predator, the Great White shark. Located in the V&A Waterfront, the luxury One&Only Cape Town resort is a mere 45 minutes’ drive from False Bay, one of the most richly diverse oceanic habitats in the world and where some of the most incredible shark and whale encounters in the world can be experienced. This tailor made marine expedition promises guests the opportunity to be guided by world-renowned Great White Shark expert and marine wildlife photographer Chris Fallows.
Chris whose images have been published around the world, specialises in capturing of the unique phenomenon of breaching by Great White Sharks. An avid proponent for the protection of the ocean’s wildlife, his tailor made eco-friendly Ocean Safaris provide amateur and professional photographers the opportunity to capture the best possible shot without compromising the animals. Chris explains, “Our focus is an all-round nature experience to try and show our guests as much different wildlife as possible– we really try to educate more than just offer an adrenalin thrill. The sight of a 20 feet long, 4200-pound prehistoric fish breaching while in pursuit of a Cape Fur Seal, its prey, is likely to send every heart on board racing.”
