The Tsitsikamma National Park is possibly one of the most beautiful places on the planet and, with its rugged coastline, beautiful forests, and amazing rivers and waterfalls, it’s also an adventure paradise.

Go snorkeling or scuba diving in the sea at the Storms River Mouth, or kayak up the beautiful, deep, black gorge where you can look up between the rugged vertical cliffs at a thin sliver of sky.

Hike along the coast from the SANParks camp to one beautiful B&B after another, or take a slightly more challenging trek through the mountains. You can swing through the trees on a treetop canopy tour, or do a zip line slide across the top of a waterfall, go abseiling or do a quad bike tour of the forest.

Geez, if that’s not enough, do the highest bungee jump in the world. There is just so much to do here, you’ll need at least a week.

Abseiling

Bungee Jumping

Canopy Tours

The treetop canopy tour in the Tsitsikamma Forest near Stormsriver on the Garden Route was the first cable slide tour in Tsitsikamma. It’s a wonderful zip through the beautiful trees with occasional sightings of fabulous birds like the Knysna loeire (or turaco) and - if you’re very lucky...

Kayaking

A guided sea kayak trail from the mouth of the Storms River up to the beautiful deep, dark, dramatic gorge is a great, not too extreme adventure activity.

Kloofing

Scuba Diving

Snorkeling

There is a safe snorkeling site near the mouth of the Storms River in the Tsitsikamma National Park on the Garden Route. It was a snorkeling trail but the trail markers have long disappeared. The pretty marine life is still there, though. You can use your own gear or rent snorkeling equipment.

Zip Line

A zip line tour close in the Tsitsikamma area of the Garden Route is a real adrenaline-intensive adventure. As well as the thrill of some really long cable slides, you get to see fantastic scenery including some pretty waterfalls. All zip line tours are guided, and all safety equipment supplied.
