If there’s one thing South Africa is known for (aside from blood diamonds and warlords) it’s Great White Sharks. Â 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. Â 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. Â The shark continued to circle their boats for longer than any sane person would have felt comfortable with. Â Fortunately neither one panicked and the result was a pretty awesome close encounter.
