... A lot of birds aren't bothered about you when you're in a canoe. We entered a wooded ravine and it was like exploring a lost world. We saw quite a few Knysna Louries flying from tree to tree, and a giant kingfisher who wouldn't allow us anywhere near him, canoe or no canoe. It's the world's largest kingfisher, 43-46cm long. The first place we landed was beside a pulley raft bridge affair, a sort of boy-scout style raft floating ...

As the tide rolled in and out, I kept getting sucked in and felt like I was being tripped by some bully at school. I finally decided that water was not ...

... part about bungee jumping was watching all my friends share in that intense moment where jumping off the edge of a bridge goes from intense nervousness to ultimate euphoria.

The adventuring didn’t stop there as later that day we went to Tsitsikamma National Park for a coastal hike to a hidden waterfall. Maneuvering our way along the coast through rock formations carved by the violent waves of the ocean we reached out destination after about an hour. ...
