5 Things To Seek

  1. Dolphins and Porpoises – keeping vigil on the ocean will produce sightings of schools of dolphins and porpoises frolicking in the waves.
  2. African Black Oystercatcher – this red data species is one of South Africa’s most threatened bird species. Several pairs nest along the park’s rocky coastline.
  3. Knysna Lourie – these beautiful birds with a gruff call are common in the forest.
  4. Cape Clawless Otter – the source of the name of the Otter Trail, this shy and elusive species hunts crabs along the park’s coastline and rivers alike.
  5. Blue Duiker – this miniature antelope is found in the forests.
