angarosh - mother of sharks

 

Sudan is one of the world's most unique diving destinations. It is the Red Sea's best kept secret.


While Egypt is now crowded, its corals damaged by hoards of amateur divers, its schools of fish long gone from its famous sites and its sharks only a distant memory, the coast of Sudan has remained wild and untouched, with less than a thousand divers venturing there every year.


To diving conoisseurs, Sudan's dive sites at Sanganeb, Angarosh, Sha'ab Rumi and Cousteau's pre-continent all sound very familiar and evoke unforgettable dives. This is the place to see schools of hammerheads with a colorful coral backdrop, white tip, grey, silk, longimanus, tiger sharks regularly pass by the points of these famous reefs. But this is not only the best place to admire sharks; pristine reefs are incredibly rich in underwater life and visited by turtles, mantas, schools of barracudas, dolphins, etc.


Famous World underwater photographers and divers such as Jeremy Stafford Deitsch, Hans Hass, Leni Riefenthal, Folco Quilici, Raimondo Boucher, Umberto Pellizzari, all agree this is truly an underwater paradise.
