Where the booming breakers of the Indian Ocean relentlessly pound rocky shores, where temperate high forest and fynbos roll down to the sea, where ancient rivers carve their paths to the ocean down steep rocky ravines. This, “the place of much water”, is the Garden Route National Park’s Tsitsikamma.
The heartland of the Park stretches some 5 km to sea, protecting a wonderland of intertidal, reef and deep sea life. Dolphins frolic in the breakers, surfing and playing for the sheer joy of life, and the gentle giant of the ocean, the southern right whale visit here, coming inshore to breed. The African black oystercatcher, a red data species, is one of South Africa’s most threatened bird species and several pairs nest along the Park’s rocky coastline. The beautiful Knysna loeries with their gruff call are common sightings in the forest. The Cape Clawless Otter is a shy and elusive species that hunts crabs along the Park’s coastline. Blue Duiker and bushbuck are seldom seen but can sometimes be glimpsed browsing around campsites.
