    Awsome man. I remember while diving in Coral Islands (Thailand), there were Monti's about half the size of a car.

    No, unfortunately not yet MalAfrica. I have only been to Ponto Maolongane and Do Ouro in Moz.... BUT - I would really LOVE to go further north up the coast of Moz! We are planning this - BUT - if only the cost of fuel would get less.... Me and my wife would have done the trip this coming December - but now, with the cost of diesel (My Jeep is a 2.8 CRD) it will not be happening this coming December..... we were planning to drive up to Tofu..... But stop over along the way and do some dives as we go along....
