About The Storms River Suspension Bridge

The suspension bridge that hangs over the red-brown waters of the Storms River Mouth spans 77 metres and remains one of the most popular tourist attractions of the Tsitsikamma region of the Eastern Cape. Situated within the Tsitsikamma National Park, it was originally built in 1969, but has since been rebuilt by San-Parks to ensure its stability and safety. It hangs just seven metres above the churning waters of the river as it enters the foamy Indian Ocean.

The pathway leading to the suspension bridge covers 900 metres of the Tsitsikamma forest. There are plenty of steps to negotiate, but it remains a fairly easy route, particularly if covered slowly. The walk is well worth the magnificent views. Birds accompany walkers along the way and there are a number of lookout point and places to have a seat and rest, while enjoying the vistas of the turquoise ocean.

A steep decline takes visitors to the bridge. Adventure sport is increasingly popular in this part of the world and it is not uncommon to see groups of paddlers and divers heading out to explore the rugged terrain and wild waters. Standing on this dramatic piece of engineering, visitors are able to take in the unspoilt beauty around them. There are two smaller suspension bridges that take visitors back to the pathway for their return journey.
