Tsitsikamma National Park is situated between the ocean and the Tsitsikamma Mountains, located along the Garden Route – one of the most striking coastlines of the world. The Park spreads over 80 kilometres along the coast between Nature’s Valley and Storm’s River mouth, and includes a variety of different ecosystems (indigenous forests, commercial plantations, Fynbos and inter-tidal areas). It also boasts spectacular scenery and walks. It was the very first Marine National Park to be declared in Africa and is currently the third most regularly visited of all twenty of South Africa’s national parks. The forest contains over 30 species of native trees, several of which tower above the forest canopy – the highest being approximately 36 metres tall, whilst others date back to more than 1,000 years ago.
