There’s a lot to see and do in and around Port Elizabeth – the Gateway to the Garden Route – and these attractions and activities can be found on the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism website at www.nmbt.co.za/accommodation.
Additional attractions and activities are also listed on Tourism Tattler’s Trade Directory, which has been categorised by location and experience. Below is our recommendation for an adrenalin-filled adventure experience along the Garden Route in the Eastern Cape of South Africa:
Storms River – Tsitsikamma National Park
Stormsriver Adventures is based in Storms River Village in the heart of the Tsitsikamma National Park forest. All activities start at the adventure centre where one can choose between the world renowned Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours ©, Tsitsikamma Woodcutters Journey and Guided Hikes & Team Building experiences.
Self catering accommodation is provided at The Green House, which is set in the heart of Storms River Village and is ideal for a family of four or two couples who want a special getaway treat.
Besides being Fair Trade and GreenLine certified, the company is the recipient of multiple awards for its support of local community projects, which include a school feeding scheme, animal welfare program, and HIV Aids awareness.
Founded in 1998, Stormsriver Adventures is one of the largest new job creators in the Eco Adventure industry in South Africa. Only local guides are employed with an emphasis on skills development.
Professional video and photos are included in the Canopy Tour experience, and to unwind from the adrenalin rush, visitors can relax at the Trees Restaurant, which is a job creation initiative that has capacitated ten local women from communities on the Garden Route. Or visit the Tsitsikamma Crafters who supply a range of locally produced crafts unique to the area.
