6 Things To Do And See Whilst In The Tsitsikamma

BY Tsitsikamma Village Inn

The Tsitsikamma region is filled with fun outdoor activities and things to do and see – be sure to give yourself a few nights here to enjoy all it has to offer.

Here are our top 6 picks to do while in the area:

1. Face Adrenalin Bloukrans Bungy
The legendary Bloukrans Bungy is the world’s third highest jump, and the highest in the Southern Hemisphere. This is the Rolls Royce of bungy’s and access to the jump point on the top of the arch is via a specially engineered walkway underneath the road deck, an almost mystical experience.
Height: At 216m, Bloukrans is only 17m shorter than the world’s highest bungy.

2. Guided Bridge Walking Tours
Too scared to take the big leap? Don’t fear, you can enjoy a personally-guided tour of the bridge and bungy system to gain a first-hand understanding of the most high-profile adrenalin sport on the planet. Bridge tours take place daily, experienced tour guides will take you on a historical journey through the environment conquered by bridge engineers many years ago. It also has the perfect view to watch the thrill seekers jumping off the bridge. 

3. Paul Sauer Bridge 
The Paul Sauer Bridge, built in 1954, spans the impressive Storms River Gorge on South Africa’s Garden Route. It is erroneously known to many as the ‘Storms River Bridge’. It is a marvel of architecture and engineering and was designed by Italian Riccardo Morandi. 

4. Big Tree 
The well sign-posted and much-loved “Big Tree” is located close to Tsitsikamma Village along the N2. A pathway through indigenous bush leads to this magnificent Yellowwood giant and walking to the tree takes about 10 minutes. The tree is estimated to be ±800 years old, it stands 36.6 metres high and has a circumference of almost 9 metres.
5. Storms River Village 
Storms River is located between Paul Sauer Bridge and the Storms River Mouth Rest Camp, south of the N2. It’s surrounded by trees – both pine plantations and lush, indigenous forest. The peaceful village is a quaint collection of smallholdings, houses and a couple of shops. 
The main attraction of the Village is a number of great adventure-type activities operated from or close to the village, also known as the Adventure Capital of South Africa.

Options include the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour, Woodcutters Journey, Black Water Tubing, renting of mountain bikes, kayak & kloof, scuba & snorkel, Tsitsikamma boat dives, boat cruise, hiking and walking etc. 

6. Storms River Mouth 
The Storms River Mouth section of the Tsitsikamma National Park is very scenic and a must-visit. A number of short trails (2-6km) allow you to explore the coastal bush and rocky shoreline. The most popular walk is to the river mouth and over the well-known suspension bridge that spans it. 
Other facilities include a restaurant with a deck that promises great ocean views and cold beer, a tidal pool, and a small curios and convenience store.
