Fires, fireworks and Chinese lanterns

  • The densely wooded Tsitsikamma forests, the high proportion of wooden homes, the changeable wind conditions and the fact that the nearest Fire Department is 30km away, make it vital that owners and visitors avoid creating fire hazards in Nature’s Valley. See Useful Links for emergency contact numbers
