“Tsitsikamma National Park The word tsitsikamma is a Khoisan phrase meaning place of abundant water. The Tsitsikamma National Park is a coastal reserve on the Garden Route in South Africa. It is well known for indigenous forests, dramatic coastline, and the Otter Trail. On 6 March 2009 it was amalgamated with the Wilderness National Park and various other areas of land to form the Garden Route National Park This is probably the most beautiful game park in the country as it requires a drive along the Garden Route to get there. It also offers marine life as an option: dolphins and whales can sometimes be seen off the park's coastline. The park covers an 80 km long stretch of coastline. Nature's Valley is at the western end of the park, and the main accommodation is at Storms River Mouth. Near the park is the Bloukrans Bridge, the world's highest bungee jump at 216m.” - Chris Smit, 2009/12/09
