16th July – Gantsbaai, Cage Diving with Great Whites!
What is there to say; this is something I have wanted to do since God knows when and I woke up rather excited. This however, didn't stop me (as well as everyone else on the minibus) from sleeping for the majority of the 2 hour journey starting at 5:30am! When we arrived at 8ish we were all sat in a room and given some breakfast; I more or less had lunch though by having 2 ham and ...

Tomorrow will be a well deserved rest day before our next close encounters with the African wildlife. Until next time!
