Garden Route DestinationsStorms River, Tsitsikamma
Storms River is a scenic, powerful river that winds its way through the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range and into the Indian Ocean.
This is a key attraction for tourists from all over the world that want to experience the adventure sports and natural splendor of this South African water feature. It makes its way through the magnificent, verdant forests that characterise this part of the Garden Route. Its banks are flanked by tall indigenous trees and are frequented by the bird life that calls this home. Storms River traverses through the Tsitsikamma National Park, which is one of the oldest marine reserves in the country, as well as one of the biggest. This region is also home to the little village of Storms River, which is a backpacker's delight and a camping hotspot.
But ‘Storms River’ has become something of a synonym for the wild, crashing seas and breathtaking views of Storms River Mouth, and the incredible suspension bridge that serves as a lookout point over stormy seas and precipitous cliffs through which the Storms River tumults into the sea.
Storms River village provides a number of adventure activities like the Canopy tours, bungi jumping from the Bloukrans River Bridge, which claims to the be the world’s highest at 216 metres, biking trails, fishing excursions and Black Water Tubing and kloofing, but the star of the show is nature herself and the meeting place of forest, precipitous cliff and stormy seas.
