• Camdeboo NP is also divided into 2 sections. The Game area (with the campsites) spread along the shores of the dam and is some to elands, mountains zebras, black wildebeest, springbok, blesboks...

    The Valley of Desolation is in the otters section and is quite impressive. A short trail of 1km allow you to walks to the edge of the cliffs and around on the plateau with a lovely sight (when the weather is with you...)

  • Nature's Valley is another section of Tsitsikama ans is simply stunning. It is also located on mouth of a river reaching the ocean deep in a canyon. The sand beach spreads endlessly and the place is so tranquil...

  • The Garden Route NP is actually composed of 4 different sections along the Indian Ocean coast. One of them is the Storm River mouth part of the Tsitsikama NP.

  • Addo is split into different section and the most southern one is Colchester spreading all the way to the Idian ocean coast at the Woody Cape section. Now this is a place I can but recommend to visit!!

    The contrast between the green rolling hills home to dairy cow farming, the indigenous forest on the old dunes and the endless sand beaches is simply stunning!

    But see for yourself...

  • I must say I do not quite understand all the noise about Addo... The game area at least is totally over-rated. I mean except if you've never seen elephants and won't have the chance to see them anywhere else, I would skip Addo. This is a very busy and touristy place, with  rather non interesting landscape...

    But here are some pics anyway.
