KwaZulu-Natal, a coastal South African province, is known for its beaches, mountains and savannah. The safari destination has just as exciting animals below the water.
The area is well known for its marine diversity: bright soft corals, starfish, anemones, seahorses and large schools of pelagic fish including the passive Ragged tooth shark.
The KwaZulu-Natal coastline is blessed with endless summers and blue, crystal clear serenity of the warm Indian Ocean makes the province a divers paradise for so many reasons.
The sardine run which spans from the Eastern Cape to this coastal region of KwaZulu-Natal happens around June-July each year. Hundreds of thousands of sardines are found migrating to the warm waters of Kwazulu-Natal.
