Sardine Run – the Greatest Shoal on Earth

We approach the sardine run again! This year may provide a bumper spectacle, something one should experience! The sardine run (also called Sardine Migration) is an annual phenomenon occurring from June to the end of July along the east coast of South Africa; the Wild Coast and KwaZulu Natal coast as far as Durban and beyond.  They call this phenomenon the biggest shoal on earth! It is often compared with the famous great migration occurring in East Africa!  To bring you close to this sight we operate a tour both ways from Durban and Cape Town where one can visit the beaches. Sharks, dolphins, whales and man alike chase these little fish onto the beach! Dark spots in the sea close to the beaches – sometimes up to 15 kilometres long and around 3,5 kilometres wide – give away their presence! A popular way to get close to these little fish is a boat trip to the shoal. Then jump overboard with a mask and snorkel and awe at the activity below you! Scuba divers have endless options to experience the sardine migration! Take a boat ride to one of the shoals, then dive into the sea! Watch the sharks, dolphins, and even whales amongst other predatory fish as well as birds dive in to enjoy a sumptuous meal. Time to experience the biggest shoal on Earth! Please click here for the tour departing from Durban and here for the one departing from Cape Town to book our tours for a view of the sardine run.

Sardine Run 2022

SARDINE RUN 2022 The Sardine Run 2022 is expected to occur shortly along the Wild Coast and KwaZulu Natal south coast. All indications are that it may go as far as Durban and beyond. The spectacle – also called the greatest shoal on earth and the great marine migration of the world – occurs annually along the east coast of South Africa during June and July but could start as early as mid-May.  Watch this video taken from a drone along the KwaZulu Natal coast south of Durban during the 2021 season. You will notice sharks feasting on the millions of sardines. Many short films, video clips and documentaries exist on it.  Click here for a tiny piece on how Peter Lamberti made his film. The only people lucky enough to experience the 2020 and 2021 seasons of this amazing phenomenon were those of us living along this stretch of coastline. But, do not despair! We could get you to personally experience it this year, 2022! Why not start right away with the design of your next holiday to this area? We offer scheduled guided tours through the area, special tours to get closer to the adventure and self-drive options if you want to do it yourself.  You could also contact us at info@southerncircle.com with your specific request and we’ll design the itinerary to suit your needs.

Okavango Delta Botswana

Chobe and Okavango Delta in Botswana Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name upon independence in 1966. Four decades of uninterrupted civilian leadership, progressive social policies, and significant capital investment have created a dynamic economy in Africa. Mineral extraction, principally diamond mining, dominates economic activity. Though tourism is a growing sector due to the country’s conservation practices and extensive nature preserves. Today, Botswana is one of Africa’s most progressive and comprehensive programs for dealing with the disease. Popular safari destinations are Chobe and Okavango Delta in Botswana. The meandering Okavango Delta Botswana is one of the finest tourist destinations on the African continent. The Okavango, which originates in the uplands of Angola to the north-west, flows into and then spreads over the sandy spaces of the Kalahari to form an immense and wondrous inland delta of lagoon and labyrinthine channel, palm-fringed island and fertile floodplain. A number of safari lodges and camps have been established in and around this watery wilderness. This wilderness and the nearby game-rich Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park reserves, offer the visitors the best of several worlds, appealing variously to the game-viewer and bird-watcher, the hunter and the sporting fisherman, the explorer of hidden places and the lover of Africa in its loveliest and least spoilt state. From the calcrete floors and ancient baobabs of the Makgadikgadi Pans to the savannah grasslands of Chobe National Park and the mophane woodland of the Tuli Block, there is a wide variety of wildlife in Botswana. However, it is in the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve that visitors will find unforgettable beauty. In the lush indigenous forests of the delta and its islands, and along the floodplains spawned by this great marriage of water and sand, more than 400 species of birds
