Natural South Africa

Goukamma Natural Reserve – Catch a 14 km coastline, marine protected area, extensive dune fields and a freshwater lake (Lake Groenvlei) in its beautiful entirety. Spot the gentle Grysbok, distinctive Vervet Monkeys and over 220 species of birds including the rare African Black Oystercatcher.

Cango Caves – These are 20-million-year-old caves cut into limestone rock, with the highlight being a crawl through the bowels of the earth at the Devil’s postbox, a 23 cm high tunnel.

Tsitsikamma National Park – Evergreen forests, rolling fynbos and deep river gorges sculpt one of the most distinct terrains in SA. Tsitsikamma (place of much water) is a haven for marine life, Knysna Loeries, the shy Cape Clawless Otters and Blue Duikers. The sight of Indian Ocean breakers head banging the cliffs is not to be missed.
