Shark Route teams all back on dry land and preparing for crocs and hippos in the Okavango!
The teams on Shark Route following the annual Sardine Run are back at Shark Park. The BBC and Japanese filming teams were very successful but unfortunately the recreational boat load arrived in the midst of the massive storm that hit the coast and it put paid to the Sardine Run for 2008. The red eye activity that came in after the dust had settled provided some excitement for the teams but did not quite have the intensity of the sardines. A massive predator load was evident on the coast throughout and they certainly took advantage of the red eye when it was obvious there would be no more sardines..
The team are just preparing for their annual pilgrimage to the Okavango to work with the hippos and crocs.
