WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Coastal forest bliss hedged by ancient indigenous trees and carved by mighty gorges. Locals know this stretch of contrasting sparkling waters and emerald foliage as the Garden of the Garden Route. Tsitsikamma was once home to the ancient Khoisan people who called it 'Sietsiekamma' or place of abundant water. From birding to game spotting, hiking to adrenaline rushes, your Tsitsikamma to-do list will be absolutely jam-packed.

With rock hyraxes providing the necessary distractions around the main restaurant area, it is quite easy to find your own patch of paradise where birds chirp and glimpses of the dramatic coastline are visible through the foliage on the boardwalk. It’s not unusual to see kayakers out and about exploring the waters, but take care as they share the pathways, which can get slippery.

Those who make it to the end of the walk (there are plenty of steps and some steepish inclines) are rewarded with a 77 metre suspension bridge which hangs dramatically above the Storms River Mouth where it enters the Indian Ocean. Two smaller suspension bridges lead visitors back to the boardwalk for the return hike. The Tsitsikamma National Park remains one of the top attractions on the Garden Route and it’s easy to see why when you review your photos.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Jumping from this spot gives a double dose of thrill -- a leap from this infamous jumping pod and bridge walks surrounded by South African wilderness. The New Zealanders may have invented the bungy, but the South Africans currently boast the honour of running the world’s highest commercial bridge bungy jump in the world. At Bloukrans Bridge, the records keep rolling in – jumper Veronica Dean performed 19 jumps in 60 minutes and a daredevil by the name of Scott Huntley performed 107 jumps over 24 hours back in 2011.

The scenery is spectacular and whilst spectators can’t see the river below from Bungy HQ, jumpers have a bird’s eye view as they hurtle towards it at warp speed. The thrills don’t start when you jump, they begin as you make your way out to the jumping platform – stepping gingerly onto the bridge’s steel girders with views of the long drop below.

Spectators have a number of outdoor viewing spots (our recommendation is the one furthest from the café), but the best place to view the abject fear on the jumpers' faces (or perhaps recognise a famous face – Prince Harry has jumped from Bloukrans) is from the TV screens inside the cafe.
