The journey south to the tip of Africa went surprisingly without a hitch and during the early morning connection to Cape Town from Nairobi the flight passed over the snow cap mountain of Kilimanjaro and the mysterious spray that hangs over Mosi Otunya or Victoria falls.

The Cape is without doubt the most inhospitable coastline that I have as  yet encountered during the last year of filming around the world in locations such as the Pacific & the Indian Ocean.

During the last two weeks I have encountered Great White Sharks,Cape Fur seals,Abalone sea urchin farms and rugged sea farers and ageing South Atlantic trawlers.


 I had arrived in Cape Town on a brilliant sunny afternoon not knowing what to expect but the last two weeks have given me another perspective on this most southernly point of the African continent.



The Cape literally encounters the dire poverty of urban Africa and the brash affluence of European wealth, this southern region is also prone to unpredictable  extreme climate change without much warning.

From crisp clear sunny Mediterranean days to overcast wind swept days with a southernly chill from the distant continent of Antartica.



My next port of call after visiting this southernly region will be by mail boat to the distant remote island of St Helena, still governed as an overseas British Territory.

St Helena may well be the last destination in our year long expedition to discover and to learn more about our planets Oceans and the need to conserve our seas biodiversity for if we are to have a sustainable global future we will need to manage our Oceans in a responsible and a sustainable manner.

I now await the mails boat departure for the five day voyage to the distant island of St Helena where I will be diving and filming underwater in a quest to film more Ocean biodiversity for the documentary
