We were only in this area for one night, but what we saw of the National Park we thoroughly enjoyed. There is lots to do in this area and 2 nights would have been better. We managed a walk in the park on the day of arrival and the next morning zip wiring at Tsitsikamma Adventures, the Storm River Bridge... More

Been here on a couple of occasions as a day visitor - Love the walk over the extension bridge area - The small beach at the start of the walk absolutely awesome. So much more to do here and would love to get a chalet next time around

So much to see and do whilst exploring the Garden Route. Fantastic views and so many well sign posted places to visit. Tsitsikamma is a good days visit and so worth it.

The weather was the only negative in hiking the Dolphin Trail. What amazing ecosystem along the Indian Ocean, complete with ocean, forest and mountain scenery. We left from Storms River for our wonderful and educational two day and three night hiking experience. Our guide was an amazing wealth of knowledge and so very patient with the slower among our group.

We spent a half day at the NP, hiking... the obligatory trip to the Storms River mouth is a must and if you are fit enough the walk up to the view point on the other side is well worth it, but probably not for everyone. We at the Cattle Baron inside the park, but this was not such a... More

We drove the entire route but I think you needed to get off the road and hike to appreciate the area.

Great trip if you're a thrillseeker: surfing, boating, bungee jumping, mountain biking shark diving and skydiving are all musts! Just make sure you have enough money with you because all of these optional activities cost extra.

Storm River Mouth is a wonderful place to visit, take a walk to the suspension bridges and back it's well worth the experience. Whilst we were there we saw two Bryde's Whales fairly close inshore,( well as they had dorsal fins they weren't Southern Right Whales!) Had a nice lunch at the Stormsriver Mouth Restaurant, service wasn't up to much,... More
