The Tsitsikamma National Park encompasses a spectacular stretch of indigenous forest that stretches from the coastline up to the Tsitsikamma Mountain range and offers visitors the opportunity to see some of South Africa’s most colourful birdlife and flora. The park itself includes a stretch of natural forest alongside the coastline and a portion of the adjacent ocean. There are various walks and hikes available to explore this afternoon before setting up camp on the verge of the ocean.
The original section of Addo Elephant National Park was founded in 1931, due to a home needed for 11 elephants. The park currently houses over 450 elephants, and a large number of other mammals, such as; Cape buffalo, black rhino, antelope, lion and hyena. The park is also home to the largest remaining population of flightless dung beetle.
