Billions of sardines (Sardinops sagax) spawn in the cool waters of the Agulhas Bank and move northward along the east coast of South Africa. Their numbers of sardine create a feeding frenzy along the coastline. The run, containing millions of individual sardines, occurs annually between May and August when a coastal current of cold water heads north from the Agulhas Bank up to Mozambique.

Seal Pup Rescue and Rehabilitation
In conjunction with Tenikwa wildlife awareness and rehabilitation center – Fur seals pups are completely land based for the first 10-12 weeks, as they need to built strength and learn how to swim first through trial and error. These little guys often get knocked off the rocks by other seals or stormy swell before they are ready, the lucky ones from time to time make it to beach without drowning but exhausted and mostly dehydrated, Tenikwa gives them medical check-up and re-hydrates them before we reunite them with the colony.They have 50% survival rate if reunited with the colony within 3 days.

We work in affiliation with the
Nature Valley Trust on their environmental education programs. We have also received a letter of appreciation from the international foundation of environmental education for our efforts and involvement in environmental education.

We support House Of Hope and so can you.
Kranshoek is a village just outside Plettenberg Bay (South Africa), where people live in very poor homes, unemployment and poverty often lead to problems related to alcohol abuse, drugs and domestic violence. Those who pay the consequences are the children, who barely have enough to eat, denied with the possibility of a scholastic formation and consequently the lack of future prospects derives from this. Donations to the association House of Hope are used exclusively for the children and adolescents of Kranshoek. All the helpers involved in the project work free of charge (except for the two local trainers).
all year round
Rent a Jet-Ski for 20 minutes on the beachfront central beach Plettenberg Bay. Guided tours with qualified skipper or ride ski by yourself if you have a valid skippers license.
