It’s time for the Sardine Run!
You’ve seen the whales in Hermanus and the flowers in Namaqualand, but what about the sardines along the east coast? Every year between May and July, millions of sardines swim from the colder water around Port Elizabeth, where they spawn, up the coast of KZN in schools that can be 15 km long. The sardines attract marine predators like sharks, seals, whales and dolphins, and hundreds of thousands of gannets. South Coast festivities. Many towns and beaches along the KZN South Coast celebrate the sardine season with fun activities. See the programme at tourismsouthcoast.co.za Get a discount.
