Tsistsikamma, place of abundant water, is approximately a two drive from Port Elizabeth on The Garden Route. Managed by the SANParks and accessed with the annual Wild Card, a wonderful visit for walking, hiking, bird watching, relaxing on the beach with a selection of accommodation including camping. It features a well stocked gift and grocery shop and a restaurant.
15km inland is Storms River, which suits both young and old and the adventurous. We stay in the original hunting lodge built in 1840 which is now the Village Inn. Our room was in the old stables now converted to bedrooms, although small in size, good use of the space was made including an ensuite shower room and separate toilet. There are numerous places to stay and several restaurants in Storms River.
We stayed for 2 nights on route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, more than 2 nights is needed if you want to experience everything on offer. From Canopy Tree Top Tours, Falls adventure zip lines, segway trails, bungy jumping, tubing, and kayaking.
