Every year between the months of May to July, billions of sardines (Southern African pilchard Sardinops sagax) migrate in a band up along the eastern coast of South Africa. The Sardine Run is the worlds largest migration of fish, and draws in millions of marine predators - resulting in the largest feeding frenzy in the world! People from all across the world flock to the coastlines of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces during this time, to witness the insane activity of dolphins, marine birds, fish, sharks, whales and other large predatory fish.

Most accommodated tours last a couple of days where you'll spend ample time in the ocean where all of the hype happens! You'll have a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the feeding frenzies and mind-blowing marine activity up close and personal.
