It's episode 4 of Bakkie Stories, following our epic road-trip through South Africa and today our team brave the warm waters of KwaZulu-Natal province for a once in a lifetime experience, cage-diving with sharks! Few things compare to the adrenaline rush and exhilaration when our team come face-to-face with these uber-predators in their natural environment. This area of South Africa is famed not only for its Blacktip, Dusky and Spinner sharks, but also the occasional Tiger shark too. If shark-spotting wasn’t enough, Maya, Alice and Saunders were lucky enough to see pods of friendly dolphins and whales on their trip too!
The Sharks Board is also involved in vital shark research, and educates the public about sharks and their behaviour.
