Last day at Tsitsikamma

A travel blog entry by amydeb


Last day – Today was out last day before flying out tomorrow. We drove to Tsitsikamma National Park and hiked to the suspension bridge over the Storms River mouth right at the ocean. This park has incredibly beautiful campsites -- log cabins and RV/tent sites right in front of the rocky surf.

A travel blog entry by amandip


... and had a great view off the mountain onto the Bay. The mountainside was covered in mist (clouds) so we couldn't see the water but we could hear the waves beating against the shores. We dropped off our stuff and drove down the mountain to the Harbour-front at Knysna. Parking was free but we had to give our parking 'monitor' a donation. We had brunch at Mon Petit Pain (where the breads are made fresh daily) and bought a ...
