“The treas are even more spectacular then the painting by Thomas Baines. There are only 3 campsites a little way from the monument. Being at this beautiful, remote place, is a humbling experience, especially at dusk and dawn, when the giant trees change colour and become surreal.” - Mietsie Visser, 2021/08/11
