Great hiking trails.There are beautiful views and great moments along the trail including crossing the river on a small pontoon. The rest camp is very full during the South African summer holidays but we didn't really encounter many people on the trail.

We went for a leisurely 2 hour walk(on the map saying over 3 hours) this afternoon. The trail was tranquil. We saw some birds but not much else.

Well worth the entrance fee to the park - in itself it has loads to offer. When thye tell you the walk to the waterfall 9along the beach) is difficult 0 they really do mean it.

Fabulous trails and walks. Lots of wildlife and nature. It is known for the kingfisher trails but there is much more to see.

There is a short walk in the park,. There are mainly birds , no mammals. Very nice and tranquil, especially early morning. It is a good park for bird watchers.

Wonderful place for trail walking and most spectacular views from all over the reserve. And the beach is unspoilt, waterfalls, unique pebbles, the black waters of the storms river running into the sea, Staff very friendly and helpful.

Walk through a trail for an hour to get to a waterfall where you can swim in the black water which is rich in nutrients for your hair..

This is our regular stop on our way from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town if we are not in a rush. There is a SANPARKS campsite situated on the Touws River called Ebb and Flow: We stay on the South site as the North loses the sun early in the day. River view sites are the best so get there... More

Extremely disappointing experience. Was looking for some serious walking. Purchased a Park Permit (R200), only to find that due to heavy rain the previous day, most walks were considered too muddy to explore. The R200 was refunded without question when we left!

Canoeing and hiking up to the falls of the park is a nice option if you want to spend a half-day or maybe a whole day in the park. There are lots of birds to see and even some bigger animals (we spotted an impala right in front of us, when walking to the falls. Pretty cool). The hiking trail... More
