Giant kingfishers.

A travel blog entry by timellis99


... 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 ...

We woke up super early at 6 to head to the Tsitsikamma National Park for tubing.
After a bit of a wait, enough people arrived and we set off for a ride on the back of the truck into the park. We carried the inflatable rings down to the river bed, which was quite an excercise through the rocks and trees - and wearing a big life jacket too!
