We’re just about to leave on the Otter Trail in Tsitsikamma National Park! This is perhaps South Africa’s most famous hiking trail – for it’s scenery, it’s challenge (there’s a cumulative climb of 2 700 metres) and it’s pristine ecosystem – the entire coastline here is a Marine Protected Area. It’s a beautiful day here on the southern Cape coast. The forests are lush. The fynbos sparkling from a bit of rain we had last night. And the ocean is bluueeeee…We arrived here from Gamkaberg late yesterday, and took a few photos just to let you know that this place is like so many others in South Africa – uniquely beautiful!

See you in a few days when we’re finished the trail.
