Safe_Cracker, I presume you've never been to Africa... If you had you'd know why people go there. The water inshore of the reef along Diani Beach in Kenya is safe from sharks too... un-hooked, I went to Galu on South Diani this time last year and chose to take Malarone with me, you don't have to tak...
