My Sardine Run experience

by Petrus Jacobus van der Walt February 24, 2022

Summary of the sardine run,

The sardine run is the biggest of animal migrations in the world. The sardine migration, is a totally wild unpredictable event. When it all comes together, as it does for three months annually, the sardine run is the most spectacular wildlife spectacle on the planet; dolphins, seals and whales whip the ocean surface into whitecaps, thousands of birds diving, whales lunge feeding through shoals scattering the sardines. It is a twilight zone where time stands still and becomes meaningless, as you witness this amazing play of life and death unfolding.

If you are looking for a real African experience and adventure diving at its best, the Wild Coast sardine run will not disappoint!
