White Shark in South Africa

White Shark in South Africa

In addition to encounters with the legendary white shark, this white shark safari in South Africa also contains lectures by marine biologist and shark researcher David Bernvi.
White shark is the world’s largest predatory fish. It can reach a total length of 5.9 meters and weigh up to 2,000 kg. The great white shark is also warm-blooded and is a specialist in hunting marine mammals. We are in the best place in the world to see white sharks under the best possible conditions of the year and here you learn so much from David. According to Allcitypopulation, Cape Town is the largest city in South Africa.
