Celebrate Shark Week's "Schweekend" All Year with African Travel, Inc.

DELRAY BEACH, FL, Aug. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Discovery Channel's highly anticipated "Shark Week" programming has come to an end, but not to fear: the programming has earned a spin-off "Schweekend" that will premiere on Saturday, August 29. However, die-hard fans of these regal seaborne creatures can enjoy thrilling face-to-face encounters year-round with African Travel, Inc. On the action-packed "Thrilling Adventure in Southern Africa," guests descend into the Atlantic Ocean for a rare up-close-and-personal interaction with these provocative beasts - all from the safety of a reinforced cage.

"Thrilling Adventure in Southern Africa" is a heart-pumping itinerary designed for adrenaline seekers. Adventurers from around the world venture to Cape Town to test their courage in shark-infested waters, and no certification is necessary - expert guides take care of all your arrangements before you take the plunge. In addition to the stimulating shark dive, you will explore the most exciting areas of South Africa and Zimbabwe while actively participating in the adventure of a lifetime.

Table Mountain becomes less of a beautiful landmark and more of a challenge as you hike the imperial face and rappel down the steep slope. Witness Victoria Falls, the world's largest curtain of falling water, and canoe down the Zambezi River to experience "the smoke that thunders" from all angles. Feel the refreshing mist on your face as you harness into a giant swing and zipline through the forest canopy 300 feet above the river.

" Thrilling Adventure in Southern Africa " is an 11-day exploration of Cape Town, Tuli Game Reserve, Johannesburg and Victoria Falls. Prices start from $6,785 per person, based on double occupancy.
