This is within the Tsitikamma National Park. There is an entry fee of R168 for two persons which gives access to storms river mouth itself. This consists of quite a long coastal strip. It is quite "commercialised" with camp sites, wooden chalets and a shop and restaurant but the scenery is worth the visit. We walked up to the suspension... More

The large suspension bridge is having work done at present so is closed the mouth river walk is still worth doing as the other two bridges are still open. The walk is approx 2km. There are plenty of other walks in the area. Just to let you know though you have to pay to enter the park R168 per international... More

A magnificent bridge with plenty happening on it, i.e. bungee jumping! You can sit in the cafe with a cuppa & watch all the action or you can jump too! The bridge itself has spectacular views across the valley.

I suggest that you make a day of it in the national park, as to visit the suspension bridge you will need to buy a day pass and at 84 Rand that's quite expensive. However, the park also offers lots of lovely hikes such as the waterfall trail (see below) and for me this really made the whole day my... More

The main suspension bridge was being repaired. No notification at payment gate or prior to setting off on walk. We had planned to walk over suspension bridge and up to look out point. We had taken friends only not only be disappointed but unable to show our friends a walk we had encouraged them to take. The expense was unnesscary... More

This was a very enjoyable walk through the woods on a good path but with some steps. Once you walk down to the suspension bridges you can cross the first to a little cove, then come back and cross the second bridge before the rather steep climb up a different set of steps and back through the woods. The scenery... More

Stayed in the lodges in the rest camp, and then took a walk to the lovely little beach and the through the woods to the bridge. Walk is fine but does have stairs which are quite steep at points, and takes about 25 minutes or so..if you find walking for mora than 20 mins hard or can't manage steep steps... More

Storms Rivier in the middle of the Garden Route is just so, so beautiful. The Tsitsikama forest is home to some old ironwood- and yellowwood trees. Some older than 600 years and protected. The lush ferns and large trees together with the black river water makes this and ideal place for nature lovers with a camera. Just relax and you... More

If you're coming from the east along the main N2 road you should already have stopped at the bridge over the Storms River Gorge (doesn't seem to get a separate listing) - there's a petrol station, restaurants, shops and information centre there (I think this is the bridge that Nico K is describing, though it's not a suspension bridge).
