South Africa

Nowhere on Earth do Africa and Antarctica come together so impressively as at the Cape of South Africa. It’s where penguins who prefer cold climates live alongside ostriches who thrive in the desert. A place that is home to surfing sea snails and live- bearing chameleons. Two mighty ocean currents collide at the Cape Peninsula – the icy, nutrient-rich Benguela Current and the warm Agulhas Current from the tropics. The interaction between these two defines life on the Cape, above and below the surface.
