The Tsitsikamma Coastal National Park at the Eastern edge of the Garden Route, stretches 67 kilometers along some of the most spectacular coastline of Southern Africa.
The main access to the park takes one to the mouth of the Storms River, where the dark peat stained river waters which have flowed through deep gorges finally meet the ultramarine blue ocean. The scenic drive from Knysna takes about 70 minutes (110km). One has the choice of taking the fast toll road over the giant Bloukrans and Groot River gorges or meander slowly through the passes on the old road. You can watch the bungee jumping from the Blaaukraans view site. Or if you are brave enough, try one of the highest bridge jumps yourself.
The tourist camp at the Storms River mouth is the start of the popular Otter Trail and has a restaurant and shop. Walk along the coast and examine the interesting rock pools or just sit and watch the waves making great masses of white foam as they crash onto the rocky coast. The forest nature trail to the river mouth and across the suspension bridge is a must. Make an early start from Knysna and enjoy a day filled with the wonders of Nature.
