If there’s one thing South Africa is known for (aside from blood diamonds and warlords) it’s Great White Sharks. The waters surrounding the coastline are ideal for the shark breed and they seem to flourish quite easily.
Someone probably should have informed these two kayakers of that fact. A rather large Great White took a bit of interest in the two floating hors d’oeuvres as they went out for an afternoon paddle. The shark continued to circle their boats for longer than any sane person would have felt comfortable with. Fortunately neither one panicked and the result was a pretty awesome close encounter.
