We were fortunate enough to join Hamish Currie, the director of Back to Africa (and a German film crew!), in the capture and relocation of two Quaggas, a zebra-like animal that was hunted to extinction. They were distinguishable by their stripes which were on the front half of their bodies only and they had a basic brownish colour at the rear. These incredible creatures are being brought back from extinction through a careful re-breeding programme.
The Otter Trail is a five day, 42km hike in the indigenous Tsitsikamma Forest by a breathtaking untouched coastline. You sleep in wooden huts with no electricity or mobile phone reception and for five days all you hear is the sound of the ocean and the incessant insect hum of the bush. Hailed as one of the World’s most beautiful hikes, this was the opportunity of a lifetime.
