Storms River and Nature’s Valley
Storms River Village and Nature’s Valley are two small villages located on the boarders of the Tsitsikamma National Park, which is a virgin coastal forest. It has over 80 km of totally undeveloped coastline which is so fragile and pristine that the Otter Trail, one of the most famous hikes in the world, has a six month waiting list to join.
But don’t let this sanctuary fool you into thinking that there’s nothing much to do here. The world’s highest bungey jump is here, on the Bloukrans Bridge (it’s only 216m, or which 100m is free fall….), the canoeing and cycling at Nature’s Valley is simply spectacular and the white water rafting on the Storm’s River itself is world class. Beyond that, you can also take canopy tours in the forest itself on zip lines between platforms: this you can do either as an adrenalin activity or to marvel at the nature. Even just crossing the Storms River on a suspension foot bridge is an experience. The whole area is a photographer's dream with the diversity of natural scenery, wildlife and the untouched nature of everything you see. There’s even a living 800 year old tree in Nature’s Valley. Wow !
