We stayed @ Tsitsikamma in one of the oceanettes. It was quite an experience with waves breaking on your door step.The weather was,nt too good so one could not do a shore entry (for Divers) . One of my favourite places when doing the Garden Route.

The garden Route through Mossel bay to Knysna is a beautiful drive overlooking the gigantic Atlantic. It is every drivers love.

Magnificent nature and beauty at its best.Indigenous Forna and Flora in its unique Fynbos form, Game parks and animals in their natural habitat, Coastal beauty and waters, estuaries comparable to the worlds best. Beaches of white sand and surf as good as it gets, and lots of opportunities for varied and incredible adventures on land and sea.

Beautiful, peaceful. Easy to get to and find. The hike to bridge was not strenuous. Great views all along the hike. Nice gift shop in Tsitsikamma Park. Would go back in a minute.

We took a long needed vacation along this section of the South African coastline. It was just want the family needed to relax and get re-energieze. We will recommend a trip up this section of the coast any time.

I drove from Cape Town to Knysna - Oudtshoorn and back to Cape Town via Garden Route. It was one of the best scenic drives I have ever taken. One should DEFINITELY experience this amazing route.

The downside about visiting when it rains is that you pay the same entrance fee of R42, but they close the bridge and you lose out on the most exciting attraction. If you happen to land there when it rains, check if the bridge is accessible and if not rather return when the weather is better.
