Days 47-52 – Year in the Wild 2013-14 – Storms River spectacular

The ocean swell at the Tsitsikamma section of Garden Route National Park has been immense recently.

I have been staying at the beautiful Storms River restcamp, which is located between the coastal cliffs and the surging sea. This is one of my favourite restcamps in the National Parks system. The wooden cabins all have superb views, the staff are very friendly, and the scenery is among the most photogenic I’ve encountered. And when the sea is raging, the waves break dramatically onto the rocky coastline, just metres from your cabin. Night and day you can hear the BOOM! of the waves, and although it’s deafening, it’s actually a very soothing sound.

Here are some photos of the huge swell and the beautiful coastline…
