National Park, Swellendam, 34[degrees]04'S 20[degrees]28'E, 2-3.
In addition to whale watching in this World Heritage Site, you can enjoy guided marine walks and hiking trails through 36,000 hectares of rare fynbos vegetation or hop on a bicycle or quad bike and get up close to antelope like bontebok
and eland, as well as zebra, baboons and ostriches.
Spread out below us, on a distant plain, where scattered herds of springbuck, blue and black wildebeest, red hartebeest, zebra, blesbok, and bontebok
, all as wild as the wind.
Obviously iconic and valuable species such as rhinos and elephants are being killed for very specific and lucrative items but there are numerous other animals such as the Bontebok
, Lechwe, Civets as well as birds and lizards that are regularly killed and/ or trafficked by the international criminal syndicates involved in wildlife trafficking.
