…towards the Indian Ocean and the mouth of the Storms River.
Tsitsikamma National Park incorporates 50 miles (80 km) of rocky coastline with spectacular sea and landscapes in addition to indigenous forests .
I was captivated by the crashing waves on the tightly folded sedimentary rocks.
The word Tsitsikamma is a Khoisan phrase meaning place of abundant water.
The park is one of the largest Marine Protected Areas in the world conserving 11 percent of South Africa’s Temperate South Coast rocky shoreline.
This remote mountainous region offers secluded valleys covered in forests with deep river gorges leading down to the sea.
The annual rainfall of 47 inches (1200 mm) a year means beautiful flowers even if I don’t know what they’re called.
After sitting then walking for a while just caught up in the ocean waves I explored reception, restaurant and gift shop.
There are also cabins…
…and a campground in the park which I hope to return to for a longer visit in the future.
Got back to the car to see this dassie watching me.
Then back on the road to Knysna.
