The Sardine Run is a natural phenomenon that occurs yearly between May & August along the east coast of South Africa. Millions of Sardines migrate up the coast in large shoals. They attract a large range of fish-eating animals. Sharks, Whales, Dolphins, Birds and larger fish feed off the Sardine shoals and create a unique natural phenomenon which has attracted the attention of tourist.
