Komati Springs

The dive site in the water has undergone a significant rehabilitation in 2002, completely eradicating any traces of mining and transforming it into a pristine location. The previous mining activities resulted in a vast hole and an interconnected cave system, creating ideal conditions for diverse forms of diving. With a depth reaching up to 55 meters in the open water and extensive exploration conducted in the caves, divers have the opportunity to delve as deep as 186 meters.

At the dive center, there are First Aid Instructors who possess the necessary qualifications to handle decompression illness effectively. Safety is a priority, as evidenced by the presence of prominently displayed signs containing emergency contact details, ensuring quick assistance in case of any issues.

The site offers various features for divers of all levels. Training grids placed at 5, 9, and 30 meters allow for skill development and practice. Additionally, anchored buoy lines are available for convenient navigation. The underwater cliffs present an optimal environment for multi-level diving experiences. During the summer season, surface temperatures rise to 24°C, gradually decreasing to 20°C at a depth of approximately 30 meters, and eventually settling at 16°C on the seabed. With visibility ranging between 10 to 15 meters, divers can enjoy clear underwater views. In winter, the temperature remains at a constant 16 to 17°C throughout, and visibility can expand up to an impressive 40 meters, providing unparalleled visibility. To facilitate easy access to the site, stairways have been installed at the water's edge.

Situated in South Africa, this captivating dive site showcases the natural beauty of the country's underwater landscapes. Its specific location is in Albert Luthuli Ward 23, within Albert Luthuli Local Municipality, Gert Sibande, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Standing at an altitude of 915 meters above sea level, it offers a unique diving experience influenced by its elevated position.
