A natural wonder on the Garden Route in South Africa and a paradise for birders, marine and nature lovers, the Tsitsikamma National Park is a destination certainly not to be missed when visiting South Africa’s southern coast.
Tsitsikamma is a Khoisan (indigenous people of the area) word which means, “place of much water” and as we discovered, there was ample water all around when we went for the Storms River Mouth Trail, a one of a kind, 2-km walking trail that began at Sandy Bay, taking us along a winding boardwalk through an indigenous coastal forest to the mouth of Storms River, where we walked on the famous Storms River Suspension Bridge, up until we reached the Khoisan Cave Heritage site.
Our hour-long walk offered us the perfect chance to catch our breath and grab some very scenic captures on our devices. As we reached the viewing deck at the farthest end of the bridge, we spotted these two birds standing still by the edge of the cliff at a slight distance away. What is amazing is how small these birds were and yet, how distinctly they stood out against the azure blue sky in contrast to the landscape, which they were a part of!
As I took this shot, I wondered what these birds might be trying to convey to each another! Can you guess?
