Yes HoepHoep there are sharks. My brother and I did a few scuba dives at Tsitsikamma a few years ago. While diving and viewing a few Smooth Hound sharks on the bottom, some visitors were swimming on the surface totally unaware of us and the sharks. In any case I don’t think those sharks were any threat to the swimmers though. :lol: :lol:

Great thread and awesome pictures! :thumbs_up:

Hiya Micetta, for your purposes I shall recommend the honeymoon cottage...

You must include one night at Nature's Valley also...

Last time we stayed in a cottage right on the rocks... exquisite, with the spray of the waves right in your face, so to speak...

According to HoepHoep, the honeymoon cottages were demolished and rebuilt. HoepHoep posted photos of the replacement buildings in this thread:

Thanks a lot Micetta and Hoephoep.

This is another one I like. It is taken from the parking behind the Oceanettes (view in the direction of the waterfall).

There are more pics in the travel tales section but these two I liked best.

Thank you - my longing for this gem has been rekindled ...

I sure do, Micetta!

16A, 16B and 17 are the real gems of this park. They cost a bit more than the normal chalets but they are sure worth it. They are the "honeymoon cottages" 16A is my absolute fave!

If these are not available nrs 3, 4, 5 and 6 are also lovely. But you would have to call the reception to find out which nr. is which sort of chalet. Number 4 is a CH4 S-D, that I know since last november this is the one where we stayed. Lovely but nothing beats the honeymoon cottages!

Lovely pics Hoep Hoep and ndloti. :thumbs_up:
We have had two awesome hols there in 2007 and 2009. :dance: :dance:
Sadly no photos, as I'm waiting for a friend to show me how to post them :redface: :redface:
In March 2010 we met someone in PE that us Brits are ashamed to call British!!!!
She was on hols, and did nothing but whinge, whinge, whinge!!
I quote "Stayed at somewhere called Titterzicaymer. Didn't think much of it, all that was there was the sea and a forest!!!! :wall: :wall: :wall:
Another quote from her "we had a barbeque sort of thing, they called a bray!!!
So we named her donkey woman after that!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thinking of Africa every day.

@J.J.
Thank you - you help so soothe the longing.

@ vgstephens
Donkey woman is far too nice a name for her, what about ...

Maybe part of the attraction of "Titterzicaymer" is the fact that you are mostly surrounded with people that can enjoy and appreciate the wonders of nature. The "sea and a forest" are the main ingredients in my favourite place on planet earth.

@ndloti
It was always there - maybe you see it from a different angle for the first time. (JJ must have taken the photo from the little concrete bridge over the stream.) It is one of the "Forest huts" and you can only image the view from there. It is the only Forest Hut with a view of the ocean. It is also very close to the ablution facilities - must be the no1 choice!
