FOLLOW THE SARDINE RUN

Follow The Sardine Run

From May to July billions of sardines spawn in the cool waters of the Agulhas Bank, off the coast of KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape in South Africa. Visible even from space (allegedly) these huge shoals of fish travel north from the colder southern seas in seething masses.

Stretching up to 15km in length, over 3km wide and 40 metres deep this is pretty spectacular in itself. But add to this literally thousands of predators (birds, dolphins, sharks, whales, game fish) arriving to partake in this feeding frenzy, and you end up with a wildlife and biomass event that rivals the Great Migration in East Africa.

Africa Collection can tailor an itinerary or package to ensure that you are in the right place at the right time to enjoy this unique spectacle. Enjoy a phenomenal marine wildlife experience (scuba diving, snorkelling or surface viewing), whilst staying on the beautiful Wild Coast.
