West Africa Diving - vacation travel photos. Another reality: a trip to West Africa

Africa attracts tourists eager for adventure, with its beautiful views, dense forests and crystal blue waters


Unexplored land and sea depths of Africa offer travelers a lot of new things, but West Africa can not boast an abundance of wildlife

In West Africa, travelers look at people whose way of life has not changed for centuries. They do not know what the seasons and birthdays are; they perform sacrifices and worship Voodoo. There is something eternal in their way of life that retains its original nature. Time has stopped here. Such was the Earth long before man had ennobled it. Voodoo religion is practiced by the majority of the population. But this does not prevent them from going to Christian churches.

50 million years ago, the dugongs (judging by the fossil remains found) had 4 full-fledged limbs that allowed them to easily move by land. Nevertheless, the animals spent most of their lives in the sea, but over time they adapted to underwater existence so much that they completely lost their ability to land movements. Dugong with the status of "vulnerable species" is listed in the Red Book of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Diving is a great opportunity to look at an unusual area of life for a person - the world under water. You can not imagine how many unmatched creatures are hidden from us under the water. And plunging at least to a depth of a couple of meters, you have the opportunity to look at all this magnificence. And besides, the guides are trying to bring tourists to the most luxurious places to contemplate in order to inspire in you a desire to re-dive.

Every year the number of divers - both professionals and just amateurs continues to increase. The growing statistics is completely unsurprising, because diving is not only a pleasant pastime, but also a useful sport that improves human health.
