Tsitsikamma (pronounced sit-si-kama) is a wild and beautiful place where primeval yellowwood and stinkwood forests set the scene for one of South Africa's most pristine parks. Situated mid-way along the Garden Route, the park's main focus is its rocky coastline with cliffs that press close to the sea. The park even extends (5km) offshore to include inter-tidal, reef and deep sea eco-systems.
Mahale is a very special place where man can meet his close cousin who shares 98% of the same DNA. This remote and beautiful national park contains at least a thousand chimpanzees, some of whom are so habituated that you can sit amongst them and watch the daily life of a chimp unfold. Unfortunately, when they decide to feed on fruits high in the trees or move off through the branches at high speed, all man's intelligence and inventions cannot help him follow.
