Tsitsikamma’s ancient forest


The Tsitsikamma region is a narrow belt of coastline consisting of dense forest and pristine beaches stretching for 80km from Nature’s Valley and into the Eastern Cape. A 77m-long suspension bridge extends across Storms River Mouth, leading to pathways trailing past thickets of ferns, orchids, lilies, and coastal fynbos. The right time of year will bring sights of southern right whales and dolphins easily seen from the shoreline.

The Tsitsikamma National Park’s evergreen forest is home to ancient yellowwood and milkwood trees – one of which dates back more than 800 years and extends for 40m above the forest floor. Small antelope hide amid foliage while shy otters dart through the gently flowing rivers. Experience Hiking the acclaimed Otter Trail, explore the rugged coastline, and keep an eye out for the area’s prolific birdlife – including the endangered black oystercatcher.

Glide along on zip lines through the treetop forest canopy some 30m in the air or venture across the Storms River Pass on a Woodcutters Journey where visitors can follow in the footsteps of elephants that once walked the well-worn trail. For those who need to cool off, discover the schools of fish that can be found around the reefs in Storms River Mouth.
