Over the last couple of days I've done some posts on the area called the Tsitsikamma on the Garden Route west of Port Elizabeth. The word Tsitsikamma comes from the original inhabitants of the area. The Khoisan called it Tsitsikamma which means "Place of many waters" due to its high rainfall. The jewel in the crown of the Tsitsikamma is the Tsitsikamma National Park. The Tsitsikamma National Park was proclaimed in the early 1960's and became the first marine reserve on the coast of Africa. Stretching over 80km long the park is probably one of the most scenic spots in the whole country with lush green indigenous forests stretching down to cliffs and an awesome coastline with black rocks and white breakers. Truly a photographer's paradise. There are two rest camps in the park. The main one is the Storms River Mouth Rest camp, while there is a smaller one at Nature's Valley. The orange flowers on the photo above is a type fence aloe. I have posted a pic of a sunbird on one of these flowers before.
