Our Garden Route Itinerary – Part 4 – Plett to Tsitsikamma

Tsitsikamma is so special to me. I conquered my fear of ziplining, and stayed at one of the most breathtaking SanPark properties. It also marked the end of our holiday on the Garden Route, so it’s really bitter sweet.

What did we get up to here?

  • Stopover at Nature’s Valley for a picnic or walk on the beach
  • Have a bubblegum milkshake at Marilyn’s diner
  • Go ziplining in the Tsitsikamma forest
  • Explore the Tsitsikamma National Park
  • Visit the Suspension Bridge in the Tsitsikamma National Park
  • If you brave enough to do the bungee, the highest bridge bungee can be found at Bloukrans bridge between Plett and Tsitsikamm. And if you not planning on jumping off a bridge (just saying), then you most welcome to have a coffee and watch others, as well as get a lovely view of the bridge

About the accomodation

There is a range of different accomodation types to suit your budget. An inside guide gave us the scoop on these cabins situated on the tip of the ocean within the Tsitsikamma National Park, called the Storms River Mouth Rest Camp. It is a San Parks property and even though it didn’t have all the luxuries we usually enjoy, we would never have the opportunity of staying so close the ocean that you could literally touch it. 

Here’s a few tips for your stay:

  • Hike to the suspension bridge and viewpoint
  • The first day of the Otter trail starts here so one can do this hike as well
  • Before you turn in for the night, do a little stargazing.
  • The kayak and lilo activity starts at the suspension bridge if you keen on that

When booking the accomodation on San Parks website, it can get slightly confusing:

  • We phoned in to confirm the chalet we wanted – it is CH3 on the San Parks website and sleeps 4.
  • It has a full kitchen, dining area, clean bathroom and surprisingly good linen.
  • We would definately recommend a night’s stay here.
