The Sardine-Run Expedition is a unique expedition exploring the annual sardine migration on South Africa's rugged Wild Coast. Sardine fever hits the Wild Coast sometime in June/July each year. The "run" or migration of sardines begins off the cool waters south of the African continent where they form into hundreds of large swirling shoals. The sardines then run north east into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and mass into what wild-life film producer Peter Lamberti has dubbed "The Greatest Shoal on Earth".

Exciting sightings whilst at Linyanti Discoverer Camp
On a recent trip at Linyanti Discoverer, we were treated to some great elephant sightings for this time of year. Elephants in the Linyanti tend to move in to the Mopane woodlands during the rainy season and start to come back along the Linyanti River towards May, though for the past two years elephants seem to have not shown much movement into the woodland, preferring to stay closer to the permanent Linyanti River.
