A Sense of Place

KwaZulu Natals iSimgangaliso Wetland Park has been called a small Eden and its not hard to see why.  Beach and bush lay side by side and you can find bothHippos_at_Lake_Sibaya turtle tracks and leopard spoor on the magnificent shoreline.

 There’s no other place in the world with a comparable ecological footprint.  Within the park which covers 332 000 hectares you can find no less than eight interlinking ecosytems, 25 000 year old coastal dunes, more than 2000 plant species, 100 types of butterfly, five turtle species, the top frog count in the country and 526 bird species.  Wild dog, buffalo, oribi, cheetah, black and white rhino, lions and some of the largest Tusker elephants in South Africa can all be found in South Africa’s first World Heritage Site.

 When elephants were reintroduced to the park in 2001, Nelson Mandela made a speech and aptly said:

‘The Wetland Park must be the only place on the globe where the world’s oldest mammal (the rhinoceros) and the world’s biggest mammal (the elephant) share an eco-system with the world’s oldest fish (the coelacanth) and the world’s biggest marine mammal (the whale).’

 It really is an amazing place and visitors can scuba dive in the Indian Ocean on Sodwana Bay’s pristine coral reefs and enjoy an afternoons game viewing all in one day.

Mysterious marine marvels of intertidal rockpools of Sodwana

Many a visitor to Sodwana has experienced the thrills of snorkelling with whale sharks, diving with dolphins and sighting manta rays on the move. But what about the fascinating worldopisthobranch of rock pools? Few have taken the time to explore the many hidden alcoves both above and below the water surface.

After a quick first glance it may appear that there is nothing unusually special about these pools; but after a closer look, creatures such as mantis shrimps, colourful sea anemones, sea squirts and sea slugs abound.

Scuba Diving with top photographer Geoff Spiby in February with Triton Dive Lodge In February Triton had the privilege of hosting and diving with top (award winning) South African photographer Geoff Spiby,  his wife Lynne and Georgina Jones, an invertebrate expert and passionate Cape-Town based diver. Sodwana Bay really came to the party and the fantastic diving conditions that  couldn’t have been better with day after day of endless viz and zero current. The trip developed as a final component of the Reef Atlas Project led by the South African National Biodiversity Institute and much discussion was devoted to developing new initiatives that divers can contribute to.
