ODP at the Sardine Run
ODP Safaris is participating in this year's sardine run!
This phenomenon occurs annually when billions of sardines which spawned in the cool waters of the Agulhas Bank migrate northward along the Eastern South African coast before turning toward the Indian ocean.
Shoals measuring 7 kilometres long and 30 metres deep are accompanied by aquatic and flying predators by the thousands. Whales, sharks and dolphins accompany the shoals, while sea birds including uncountable gannets dive bomb the fish, creating extraordinary spectacles.
We will give you a daily account of the excitement and experiences as related by the ODP participants.
