Exploring South Africa’s Garden Route

first_imgJump into a car and you’ll discover one of the world’s most remarkable coastal stretches: South Africa’s Garden Route.The Garden Route – the name given to the stretch of forested, coastal area between Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth – is the bright red cherry on this southern slice of Africa. (Image: South African Tourism)If you can bear to tear yourself away from Cape Town, there’s another local jewel worth of your attention, especially in the summer months. Jump into a car and head east – and you’ll discover one of the world’s most remarkable coastal stretches: South Africa’s Garden Route.Leaving Cape TownThe N2 highway carves and meanders for 800km between Cape Town in the Western Cape province and Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. The Garden Route – the name given to the stretch of forested, coastal area between Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth – is the bright red cherry on this southern slice of Africa.SwellendamAbout halfway between Cape Town and Mossel Bay, Swellendam is a good stopping point. More than 250 years old, Swellendam is preserved in small town charm with wide streets, neatly preserved Cape Dutch and Victorian buildings, and excellent places to enjoy some South African food.Swellendam Tourism: www.swellendamtourism.co.zaMossel BayConsidered by many as the official westernmost point of the Garden Route, Mossel Bay has a mild year-round climate, good beaches and friendly locals. Golf has become a big attraction here, thanks to the course at Pinnacle Point Golf Estate and Golf Resort. The course is perched atop a cliff and offers spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.Read more: Golf courses in South AfricaMossel Bay Tourism: www.visitmosselbay.co.zaPinnacle Point Golf Estate: www.pinnaclepointestate.co.zaYet it’s not all leisurely walks and casual golf in Mossel Bay. The town is one of the only two places in South Africa from which visitors can go cage diving with great white sharks – something to think about when you slice your ball off the cliff at Pinnacle Point!Read more: South Africa: adventure heaven!Detour to OudtshoornSlightly north-east of Mossel Bay is George, an important link in South Africa’s road network, and a crossroads for both coastal explorers and those traveling inland.For a uniquely South African experience, be sure to head north of George for a quick visit to Oudtshoorn, South Africa’s ostrich capital.Although it’s located just a few miles inland, the Oudtshoorn landscape is a dusty contrast to the thickly forested coastline of the Garden Route. Visit one of the Ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn and experience the frenetic, somewhat crazed madness that ensues from getting mixed up with these bald, chubby birds.It’s not all ostriches in Oudtshoorn, though; the area is also famous for Cango Caves. Believed to have been formed more than 65-million years ago, the caves are regarded as one of Africa’s most important natural wonders. It’s a good idea to phone ahead and book in advance.And if the caves don’t impress, the nearby Cango Wildlife Ranch surely will. The centre is one of the world’s foremost cheetah breeding projects and also boasts rare white lions, Bengal tigers and crocodiles.Greater Oudtshoorn Tourism: www.oudtshoorn.comCango Caves: www.cango-caves.co.zaCango Wildlife Ranch: www.cango.co.zaWelcome to WildernessLeaving George behind, Wilderness is undoubtedly where you will next want to stop for a day or two. With an impressive collection of long, secluded beaches, lakes and rivers, the small intimate town is the perfect place to enjoy a secluded getaway.The magic of KnysnaFrom the moment you approach Knysna, driving alongside the massive lagoon, it’s all too obvious why this town is the unofficial capital of the Garden Route. Try not to swerve off the road when you first notice the impressive Knysna Heads – the two large sandstone cliffs that stand guard on either side of the estuary mouth.In Knysna, visitors can just as easily explore the lagoon, forests and rivers as the bustling town centre. As the Oyster capital of South Africa, Knysna is a place where people love to eat. The culmination of the town’s oyster obsession is the annual Knysna Oyster festival, which takes place from late June to early July.Knysna Tourism: visitknysna.co.zaPlettenberg BayPacked with marine life, lined with long beaches and buzzing with daytime activities and nightlife, it’s easy to see why many South Africans spend their summer in Plettenberg Bay. There are also a variety of special places located just outside Plettenberg that must be visited. These include the Elephant Sanctuary, Monkeyland and Birds of Eden, the largest free-flight bird aviary in the world.Plettenberg Bay Tourism: www.plettenbergbay.co.zaElephant Sanctuary: www.elephantsanctuary.co.zaMonkeyland: www.monkeyland.co.zaBirds of Eden: www.birdsofeden.co.zaTsitsikammaHeading east once again, it’s time to tame your fears in Tsitsikamma. Some 80km of rocky coastline comprise the Tsitsikamma section of the Garden Route National Park, a place of deep, heavily scarred gorges, cliffs, tidal pools and thick evergreen forests. There are walking trails that range from comfortable day-long hikes too much longer treks.For a less strenuous experience, take a canopy tour. Standing almost 100 feet in the air, surrounded by 100-year-old hardwood trees, visitors slide along cables, zipping from platform to platform in the treetops.Not to be outdone by the heights of Tsitsikamma, the nearby Bloukrans Bridge offers a heady rush of a different kind. At 708 feet, Bloukrans is the highest commercial bungy bridge jump in the world.SANParks – Garden Route National Park: www.sanparks.org/parks/garden_routeBloukans Bungy, operated by Face Adrenalin: www.faceadrenalin.comPort ElizabethArriving in Port Elizabeth, you may have reached the end of your Garden Route journey east, but the coastal fun is far from over. PE is the gateway to the game reserves of the Eastern Cape, a malaria-free safari region that offers some incredible wildlife experiences.The most famous of the Eastern Cape reserves are Shamwari, Kwandwe Private Reserve and the Addo Elephant Park, but there are many other remarkable reserves in this region, all of which are a comfortable drive from South Africa’s “Friendly City”.Read more: The Big Seven and more at AddoNelson Mandela Bay Tourism: www.nmbt.co.zaSANParks – Addo Elephant National Park: www.sanparks.org/parks/addoShamwari: www.shamwari.comThis is an edited version of an article first published by Fifa.comWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

ODNR announces Recertification of Ohio’s State Forests

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has obtained independent review and recertification for all of the 21 state forests under the management of the ODNR Division of Forestry.“Once again Ohio’s state forests have been recognized for responsible forest management under two separate third-party certification systems,” said Robert Boyles, ODNR deputy director and state forester. “The recertification process is extensive, and we continue to guide our management of ODNR’s state forests using these internationally recognized and high standards for forest management.”“Forest certification promotes responsible forest management, and we applaud Ohio’s public forest managers for acting in a manner consistent with their principles,” said Bill Stanley, director of conservation and assistant state director at The Nature Conservancy. “Well-managed forests can simultaneously provide economic, social and environmental benefits, and this certification demonstrates not only intent, but action to deliver on these three goals.”The ODNR Division of Forestry received recertification to the principles and criteria of two internationally recognized organizations ‚— the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). The SFI integrates principles of environmental protection, while the FSC promotes responsible forest stewardship worldwide.All of Ohio’s 21 state forests covering more than 200,000 acres are recertified. The renewal will be valid for the next five years.Forest certification is a scientific, independent review process that ensures standards are met for responsible forest management. Both certification systems allow tagging of forest products that ensure to a purchaser that the certification body standards were met in producing the product. Certification of Ohio’s state forests enables the increased marketability of products by Ohio’s private forest industry.The recognition is a culmination of extensive audits, which include on-site verification, stakeholder meetings, as well as a comprehensive review of timber management, conservation practices, recreation and public outreach. Certification standards are set and updated by the program’s partners from environmental, social and economic sectors, and these standards are internationally recognized for forest sustainability. Verification audits are conducted annually.The harvesting, milling and manufacture of wood into paper, furniture and wood products employs more than 118,000 Ohioans and contributes $22 billion to the state’s economy. Forest-based tourism and recreation create countless more jobs, add millions of dollars to the state’s economy and enhance the overall quality of life.last_img read more

Hotmail Aliases: Multiple Addresses, One Inbox

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#Microsoft#web center_img Wouldn’t it be great if you could have one email address for all your friends, one email address you use to sign up for potentially spammy services and sites you don’t really want to get in touch with you, another for business and then one more for all your gamer friends? That’s exactly the idea behind the new aliases feature announced this afternoon for Microsoft Hotmail’s 350 million users.The new feature allows users to add up to five new aliases a year, up to a maximum of 15.  But why would you want to add aliases? Dharmesh Mehta, director of Windows Live at Microsoft, explains:The email address a person uses is a big part of their online identity. The average person maintains three different email addresses in order to organize different types of email, maintain different personas, or keep junk mail away from a primary email address. So there are many good reasons that people want multiple email addresses, but maintaining multiple accounts, with different user names and passwords that require you to check multiple inboxes, is inefficient.Mehta offers the example of searching for a car. You may have to sign up for several sites, but once you’ve found the car, you now have all this email still coming. With aliases, you can simply turn off the alias and – voilà ! – the emails stop. As you can see in the screenshot, when you set up the alias, you are also given the chance to direct all that alias’s email to a specific directory. This makes it simple to keep email separated so you can easily ignore pay attention to what’s important. mike melanson A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more
