This lovely park is part of the SANPark group. Tsitsikamma, Africa's first national marine park, comprises a narrow coastal plain bounded by cliffs and beaches and extending five kilometres out to sea. Beautiful and wild, the park encompasses 80 km of rocky coastline (49k image) featuring quiet tidal pools, deep gorges and evergreen forests. The name Tsitsikamma is derived from Hottentot words, tse-tsesa, meaning clear, and gami, meaning water, probably referring to the clear water of the Tsitsikamma River.
Fynbos, small mammals and a prolific bird life add to the enchantment of the region. From Storms River Mouth, nature trails meander into the forest and along the coast. One of the most scenically rewarding, the five-day Otter Trail follows the shoreline for most of its route.
For an experience with a difference, a snorkeling and scuba trail will introduce you to an underwater world inhabited by fascinating marine creatures. But if you only want to relax and soak up the sun, two exquisite beaches provide the setting.
Fully-equipped log cabins and oceanettes enjoy stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Facilities include an a la carte restaurant, tourist shop, a camping ground, swimming pool and a laundromat. Forty conference delegates can be catered for.
The park is situated halfway between George and Port Elizabeth in South Africa's temperate forest belt.
