A relatively short and easy walk up the Storms River to the bridge. Cross the bridge over the stormy river below. A good start to the Otter Trail.

If you are just "popping" into the national park, be aware that the fees are expensive, and the queue to get in is very slow due to paperwork being needed and the staff being slow and inefficient. The walk to the bridge is of average interest at best. The bridges themselves are fine - but overall not worth a short... More

This bridge is reached by a short trail (about 1km?) from the parking/restaurant area. Being scared of heights I was quite apprehensive but although the bridge does sway I felt totally safe as the rails are both quite high and quite solid. The views from on the bridge are simply stunning - I felt very jealous of the sea kayakers... More

A friend and I spent half a day hiking over the bridge and up to the lookout point, and we were thoroughly impressed with the scenery. The trail is well marked and maintained, with just a few spots where good boots and (possibly) a trekking pole come in handy. My friend did it in regular training sneakers, though, and neither...

If you are scared of hights do not do it the bridge does move with people moving on it but once on the view is amazing. Loved it

This is the most beautiful place with the best picture opportunitiesin the eastern Cape, unspoilt beaches. All the walkways are well maintained and worth the walk.

Having just completed the Otter Trail, on our spare day we visited the Storms River Camp and walked the short walk to the suspension bridges. What a credit to good management and efficient care! The wooden walkway is beautifully maintained and the reward is the awesome view on the other side. A truly world class attraction that South Africans can... More

My sisters and I visited Tsitsikamma National Park purely to go and see the suspension bridges, and we were not disappointed! When you enter the park by car, drive all the way to the end of the road where there is a little carpark and a shop, toilets etc. The views from there are already amazing! The walk to the... More

Impressive walk and views. 30 minute walk from the central restaurant and parking area up to the bridge. Beautiful view of the ocean and the rocky cost. Standing on the wobbling but safe bridge itself gives a great view of the Storms River mouth. We combined it with kayaking in to the gorge which was impressive and fun to do.

We drove to the Park in the evening and lingered near the car park enjoying the view. Before setting off on the boardwalk to the Suspension Bridge, we spent time near the car park watching the rabbit sized rock dassies ( or hyraxes ) which are more closely related to elephants and are not to be mistaken for rodents. We... More
