Recognised as one of the world’s most spectacular marine events, the Sardine Run sees millions of sardines migrating annually off the coastal waters of the Wild Coast in South Africa. Following them is the world’s greatest concentration of marine predators – birds, dolphins, sharks, whales and game fish all gorging themselves in a feeding event of unmatched proportions. Experience this phenomenal marine-life action with the team who produced the Emmy award winning BBC film “The greatest shoal on earth”.
