Post Tsitsikamma National Park
....where littoral rainforest meets the ocean in dramatic fashion. I've seen similar things in AU but the scenery here was particularly compelling:

Spectacular scenery Phil what a place for a picnic if front of those waterfalls you are a very lucky guy to get to see such wonders.
How long is the flight time for you to visit South Africa it seems a good place to visit I guess you are on guided tours?

Another hobby/pastime we try is geocaching its interesting to see there are a few where you have been walking see my screenshot of the general area.

It takes longer to fly there than back because you are flying into the westerlies. For instance, Sydney to Perth is 6 hours but only 3 hours the other way. I think it took about 14 hours to get to Jo'burg.
The jetlag is way worse coming back, though. It took me days to recover when I got back. I think it's because you are flying into the sun so the days are compressed.
