This place is commonly referred to as a miracle and for good reason. Home to one of the largest free-roaming populations of Hippos in South Africa (800 or so), 1200 Nile Crocodiles, one of the largest Estuaries in Africa, tropical Indian Ocean currents, and numerous Biospheres.
From the Ocean one may enjoy Whale Watching from June to the end of November when the Humpback Whales migrate past the shores, and then from November to the end of January one may enjoy Turtle Tours as the Leather Back and Logger Head Turtles return to lay their eggs.
