Sometimes you simply need to re-energise. And there is surely no better way to do this, than by spending time in a magical forest – or more specifically, the forests in the Tsitsikamma National Park. Whether it’s the silent grandeur of the trees and their tales of strength, or the happy sounds and sights of those living amongst the trees.
The Hottentots Holland mountains are just a short trip from Cape Town. They’re part of a lush, fynbos-covered mountain range that stretches for about 70,000 hectares. They form part of a CapeNature reserve with the same name.
We discovered the Cape Town Bucket List adventures – and took to the ocean to experience snorkeling with seals. So following a safety briefing at the Hout Bay Harbour, where the adventure starts with the Cape Town Bucket List team (Archie, Ian and Mel) we hopped into our wetsuits, and took the 10-minute boat ride out to Duiker Island.
We’re inspired by nature. By seeing her colours, feeling her textures. Hearing the sound of a bird of prey (have you heard the Jackal Buzzard? It’s one of our favourites). So we loved experiencing the thousands of tones of green in the Grootvadersbosch Conservancy recently.
