Each year during late May to late June on the East Coast of Africa an enormous gathering of creatures begins. Millions of Sardines (Pilchards) migrate towards KwaZulu Natal attracting thousands of predators: sharks, whales, dolphins, seals, birds and occasionally even Killer Whales. The spectacle from the surface is amazing, whilst underwater the action is absolutely incredible.
Superpods of up to a thousand common dolphins herd the sardines into tight shoals enabling them to systematically feed on the ever-swirling ball of fish. Joining into the feeding frenzy are sharks, birds and gamefish. To be able to predict the locations of the big shoals each day is where experience counts. African Odyssea has over twenty years of experience with the sardine run and has the knowledge to ensure that your trip to see this phenomenon is safe and as action-packed as possible.
