This reserve created in 1991, sits right on the South Africa-Botswana border in a malaria-free area. In the largest movement of animals since Noah filled his arc, the 30,352 acre (75,000 ha) reserve was stocked with 10,000 head of game from 27 different species. The park's very existence contributes to the preservation of local fauna and flora and rare animals such as rhino and wild dog, and also provides a more sustainable environment for the local people.
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.
