At the southernmost tip of the African continent, two great ocean currents meet -- from the east, the warm Agulhas current of the Indian Ocean, and from the west, the cold Atlantic Benguela current. Together, these currents dictate life's fortunes on land and in the seas, and create the extraordinary world of the Cape.
