Happy #HeritageDay! 
A bit of Plett's natural heritage....Nelson Bay Cave, also known as Wagenaar’s Cave, is located on our iconic Robberg Peninsula. It is an archaeological site showing evidence of human occupation dating as far back as 125 000 years. In the same area, at Keurboomstrand, are two other Stone-Age caves: Hoffman’s/Robberg Cave and Matjes River Rock Shelter.
Nelson Bay Cave has provided rich archaeological evidence from its Middle-and Later-Stone-Age occupation, dating from a few hundred years to more 125 000 years ago. According to studies, the cave was abandoned between 40 000 and 20 000 years ago, during the last Ice Age, when the sea level along our coastline dropped some 130m and the coastline moved about 100km seaward. 
Visitors to Robberg Nature Reserve can take the short hike down to visit this interesting slice of human history.

Our natural heritage: the protea is definitely the best-known of our endemic Fynbos. But, did you know that of the 9000 recorded species of Fynbos, that 6000 of those are found nowhere else in the world? Just one of the reasons why UNESCO recently declared the area a Biosphere Reserve.

We're celebrating our heritage this #TourismMonth. 
Where do we come from? The Southern Cape, as it turns out...
The story begins in the rugged coastline of the Southern Cape, where recent archaeological excavations at Pinnacle Point near Mossel Bay, Klasies River, Blombos Cave and Nelson’s Cave on the Robberg Peninsula, have established that modern man originated solely from this region and from a small population of around 400 -700 individuals, who survived an ice-age in the mild temperate climate of this coastline, existing primarily on shell fish. They lived in a true Garden of Eden and abundance, our ancestors in time and space. The timeline was between 150 000 to 200 000 years ago!

Happy @sanparks Week! Did you know the Tsitsikamma Marine Protected Area (MPA) is the oldest MPA in Africa. The Tsitsikamma MPA was established in 1964 and protects a variety of inter-tidal marine life, marine habitats, and threatened as well as endangered fish species. Marine bird species like cormorants, kelp gulls and African black oyster catchers are prominent along the coastline and pied and giant kingfishers can be seen hunting fish in tidal pools or in the rivers that drain into the Indian Ocean.
From 10-15 September, SANParks is offering South African citizens FREE entry into the Garden Route National Park.
