Why camp 2 nights at Storms River?

Ideal for hikes in the Tsitsikamma National Park, the Storms River Mouth rest camp is an unmissable stop along the Garden Route in South Africa.

The setting is idyllic. On one side, the forest as the starting point for hikes in the Tsitsikamma National Park. On the other, the music played by the waves of the Indian Ocean. And, in the middle of it all, you. With your tent.

Flanked between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, Storms River Mouth is an ideal starting point for your journey (from East to West) on the Garden Route. In addition to this picturesque setting, which alone justifies spending two nights in a tent and admiring the sunset(s), this camp will appeal to hikers.

Picnic in front of Tsitsikamma Falls

For the more seasoned, this is where the famous Otter Trail and its 42km begins. But everyone will find their account. In particular with a short course of 4-5 kilometers to the Tsitsikamma falls. Wedged between the falls and the sea, installed on the nearby rocks, it's time for a well-deserved picnic.

In the area, it is also possible to easily go to a suspension bridge (one or two kilometers from the location of the tents) to enjoy the view. And, of course, to return in time for the sunset.

If time permits, spend two nights rather than one at Storms River Mouth camp, even if it means skipping the Nature's Valley or Wilderness stages.

A little advice...
