Did you know that Tsitsikamma is an afro-montane forest with a medium moist high forest? Tsitsikamma means 'place of abundant water' in the San language. The forest is full of rich nutrients that support Outeniqua yellowwood and stinkwood trees as well as 20 different fern species, including the highly prized forest fern. When in the area, keep your eyes open for forest birds including the red-winged Knysna turaco and the ever-elusive Narina trogon.
HOW TO GET HERE
Take the Garden Route (N2) east from Cape Town, or west from Port Elizabeth
