Sardine Run South Africa Wild Coast
KwaGcaleka, South Africa, Wild Coast
A Marine Wildlife Festival – The Sardine Run Expedition is a unique wildlife encounter, following the annual Sardine migration, one of the largest migration in the world, along South Africa’s beautifully rugged coastline.
The Greatest Shoal on Earth!
This amazing journey attracts a multitude of predators that track and follow the Sardines migration, exploiting this localized and abundant food source. It is hard to describe the excitement of the Dolphins, numerous bird species, Whales, Cape Fur Seals and Sharks as they ‘hunt’ the Sardines.
You can actually hear the excited squeals of the thousands of Common and Bottlenose Dolphins as they travel in large breaching waves to pursue their prey, long before you see them. Attracted by the Sardines, game fish such as Shad and Garrick pursue the Sardine Shoals and provide another food source for the Dolphins. Contributing to the noise and surface action are the birds, Cape Gannets, Albatross (yellow nose and black browed), Terns and Petrels, diving into the shoals of Sardines from a great height. Humpback Southern Right and Brydes Whales can also be seen in pursuit of this moving feast.
Discover this incredible natural phenomenon on the Wild Coast of South Africa, staying in comfortable resort right on the beach, daily sea expeditions to search for the shoals of sardines and the action that follows! Truly a bucket-list experience of a lifetime.
