Southern Africa is a riot of life and color. But if it was not for two great ocean currents that sweep around and shape the continent's Great Cape it would be a desert. This episode celebrates the rejuvenating powers of the ocean. To the east, the warm Agulhas current flows south, generating clouds that roll inland creating the wettest place in southern Africa. Home to a magical fairy-tale butterfly ballet, the area is known as the 'Google' rainforest as it was only discovered using satellite images in 2005. To the west is the cold Benguela current. It is home to more great white sharks than any other sea on Earth. But perhaps most impressive is where the two currents meet. The clash of warm and cold water creates one of the world's most fabulous natural spectacles, South Africa's sardine run. This is the greatest gathering of predators on the planet, including Africa's largest, the Brydes Whale.moreless
