THE SARDINE RUN - SOUTH AFRICA


Every year, between the months of May and July, many millions of silvery sardines travel north from the cold southern oceans off South Africa's Cape Point, hugging the shore as they make their way up along the coastlines of the former Transkei (northern Eastern Cape) and KwaZulu-Natal in what is commonly known as the annual Sardine Run.

THE GREATEST SARDINE SHOAL ON EARTH


Visible even by satellite, these famous sardine shoals travel in seething masses stretching for up to fifteen kilometres in length, three and a half kilometres wide and nearly forty metres deep.

The Sardine Run is a spectacle in itself, but add to this, hundreds of predators arriving en mass to partake in a feeding frenzy, and you get a wildlife extravaganza rivalling the Great Migration of the wildebeest across the African savanna. Birds, dolphins, sharks, whales and game fish all gorge themselves on sardine's-a-plenty, putting on a show that will undoubtably live on in memory for a lifetime!
