Such an untouched gem of a park. The look out points and beaches were simply exquisite, even with stormy weather

Really amazing bird life and beautiful lagoons. Saw lots and lots of tortoises. The accommodation needs a little TLC. Really quiet and exquisite sand dunes

Stunning scenery close to Cape Town. Wildflowers carpeted the ground. We saw zebra, a venomous puff adder crossing the road (thankfully from the safety of the car), tortoises crossing the track and an ostrich walking down the road! What an amazing day. Brilliant.
