After jumping off the highest bunjy bridge, my wife and I decided to enjoy the walk to the Suspension Bridges. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike and the panoramic views.

I had high expectations, of course you can expect a lot of tourists. Pass the bridge and walk up to the highest view point. Most of the people joint with a tour will miss this, so much more private.

The entrance fee for the Tsitsikamma National Park is quit pricy (235 R). We have only visited the suspension bridge, which is the most famous activity. We have not taken any of the walking trailer, as we have a little baby. The walk is very...More

The walk to the suspension bridges is well worth the effort with excellent coastal views along the way. At the end is the main suspension bridge across the gorge with two further suspension bridges round the side of the cliff. The three suspension bridges span...More

Foreigners pay more! This is for the upkeep of the park and facilities. It is worth it.

You need to be able to walk about 1.5 kilometers each way up and down stairs. The walkways are well maintained but there are few places to sit and rest. There is no wheel chair access

Driving Time Knysna to Port Elizabeth (3 Replies)
In early May, we will be driving from Knysna to Port Elizabeth. We need to drop off a rental car and catch a flight to Durban which departs Pt. Elizabeth at 1.40pm. Do you think we have time to stop at the Storms River Suspension Bridge? To be able to fit this in, what time in the morning should we leave Knysna?

Response fromPetrus R|
Not really unless you leave Knysna by 06:00. The drive, without stops, will be between 2.5 and 3 hours. You need to be at the airport by 12:15 to be safe. I also think you should factor 30 minutes or so to "find" the airport, typical in anything other than your home country. What I would suggest is that you consider spending your last night at Stormsriver. The drive from Knysna to PE is beautiful and you would want to stop regularly. Thus driving Knysna to Stormsriver the day before would...More

Where is entrance to Storms River suspension bridge hike? (2 Replies)
Hi there We are visiting SA next month and want to do the hike at Storms River so that we go over the suspension bridge. We have a sat nav so just wondering where we need to drive to pick up the start of the trial? Looking on the map it seems to be the Storms River Mouth Rest Camp? Once there, is there restaurants and is it clear which hikes go where? Sorry if this is ignorance on my part. We would like around an hour/90 minute walk and are all able bodied and relatively fit. Thanks,...More

As you enter the Storms River Park at the gate, they will supply you with a map and guidance to get you to the main parking at the rest camp. Once there and you find a suitable parking spot you just head straight to the main building and just on the front side of the building is the marked signs on where to start with the hike. Quite a lot of steps and take with you enough water and have comfortable shoes on. Enjoy the hike! All the best! Hank Daries I Owner @ Ulungele Tours & Safari's...More
