Tsitsikamma’s beauty is so unbelievable one cannot help but feel you have stepped into a fairytale.
Situated in the Sarah Baartman region of the Eastern Cape and known as “The Garden of the Garden Route”, it takes you on an adventure through tall and mystical forests leading to rocky shores. The ancient San people called it the “place of many waters” which lies between the sea and the Tsitsikamma mountains, and stretches from the Bloukrans River in the west to Clarkson in the east.
The deep gorges, rugged coastline, indigenous forest and an abundance of fynbos, lends itself to a diverse selection of recreational and adventure activities for every taste ranging from abseiling, scuba-diving, hiking, snorkelling, boat rides and canoeing.
Tsitsikamma is also home to the famous Otter Trail, and if one is not up to breaking a sweat, then you can book a guide to accompany you and discover more about the history and ecology of the area.
Tsitsikamma National Park is South Africa’s oldest and largest marine reserve, which makes it a safe place for dolphins to frolic in the waves and the Southern Right whale to breed. The protected coastline, fynbos and forests stretch over 5 km to the sea. Please view the activities directory for more information on the range of activities available in Tsitsikamma.
