One of the many pleasant walks to take in the Tsitsikamma Section of the Garden Route National Park is the Waterfall Day Trail.

I didn’t get as far as the waterfall, yet found plenty to enjoy along the stretch I covered. The path is clear to follow, with the sea on one side and the natural forest on the other.

Sturdy wooden bridges, such as this one, aid the crossing of some of the many streams that have cut their way down the mountain.

In places the narrow footpath was muddy.

This made it easy, however, to see the prints of antelope that had walked there earlier.

One would enter through pockets of shady forest and emerge into the sunshine to see beautiful seascapes and swathes of wild flowers.

Details along these walks include interesting rocks, flowers, lichen-covered trees, birds and insects. Each time the paths reveal something different and the views never fail to satisfy.

  1. That the wonderful forest comes right down to the shoreline vegetation makes this such a special area. You photos capture something of the feeling of walking there – it is totally lovely.
