Just under an hour drive away from Stanley Island you will find yourself in and amongst the Tstitkamma area that is fill of lush forest and coastal scenery. Enjoy exploring the National Tstikamma Reserve (Garden Route National Park) that has so much to offer. Here three activities that you can do in a day.
THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE
The iconic suspension bridge over the Storms River Mouth. Enjoy the walkway through the forests and see the 77 metres. It was originally built in 1969. The 900m of trail provides views of some of small waterfalls, the ocean and the forest.
KYAK AND LILO IN THE STORMS RIVER MOUTH
What better way to explore the famous Storms River Mouth than paddling through the magnificent Storm River gorge. Untouched Adventures Team ensures that you get to experience Tsitsikamma from a different perspective. You start off either paddling on ocean or walking through the Tsitsikamma forest and the famous suspension bridge. Then enjoy paddling through the memorising gorges. End off by floating deeper up the river on a lilo and maybe try the cliff jumping.
