The Tsitsikamma National Park which includes the Storms River mouth is internationally recognised for its forests which harbour and conserve the giant Outeniqua Yellowwood tree – one of the few true monarchs of the world's forests. This enormous tree is one of the most successful species in existence, having survived, unchanged for millions of years. If only passing through make sure you take a moment to stop at the bridge over the Storms River for magnificent views up and down the gorge. Even better head for the Storms River Mouth entrance to the Tsitsikamma National Park, where a number of short walking trails, one with a wonderfully wobbly suspension bridge, give you superb experiences of coast and forest. The park is more commonly known for its ‘Otter Trail’, a strenuous five-day hike up and down ravines and gorges and along cliff edges, which is often booked up a year ahead.
Tsitsikamma National Park is also Africa's oldest and largest marine reserve, playing a vital role in the preservation and conservation of marine fauna and flora. Tourists, and particularly hikers, from all over the world visit Tsitsikamma and Storms River Mouth for its rugged, unspoilt coastline – a photographer's dream. Tsitsikamma has many wonderful scenic hiking trails of which it is justifiably proud.
Tsitsikamma is the Khoi-San word for a place of many waters. It is the perfect description of this exquisite area but does not do justice to the overwhelming experience the Tsitsikamma provides for those fortunate enough to visit it and to indulge in its unique pleasures.
