Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Great views of the ocean. Very exciting with the suspension right over the crashing waves and rocks. A must do.

“It is a short ten kilometre detour that is worth the effort”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Storms River Mouth is a short 10 kilometre detour of the N1 Coastal Highway that is worth the effort. We were driving ourselves from Knysna to Addo and decided to 'check out' the suspension bridge. Entry to the National Park cost us 100 Rand per adult (International tourist rate) and our eight year old was free! Once at the end of the road it is only a short walk to the (two) suspension bridges. There are clean toilets, a gift shop and kiosk, and lounge. There is lots more to do if you want to stay. We would have swum except for the lousy weather the day we visited.

“There is so much more to the National Park than this.”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

The wildlife in this area is much more interesting than the bridge - but the path their provides some excellent sighting, especially if you are quite, you take your time and don't race off to the bridge with your eyes closed to everything else around you.

Have a look at some of the things we saw in a relatively short visit.

“A fun and easy walk to the suspension bridge in a spectacular oceanfront setting”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Although pressed for time, the hostess of our lodging urged us to visit Tsitsikamma National Park. Without time to undertake a longer trek, we opted to visit the Storm River location where the River empties into the ocean, and this trekker's suspension bridge spans the River. Though the National Park entrance fee was high for visitors spending only an hour or two, once we arrived at the coast we would not have missed it. The pounding surf, the rugged coastline edged by a dense tropical forest, and the chance to observe whales passing (we didn't see any, but plenty of folks were investing more effort than we did) all make this a great stop. The gorge of the Storm River opens to the sea about 1/3 mile from the visitors center, and the suspension bridge is reached via a fairly easy trail about 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot. It is mostly one way so visitors aren't on top of each other as we neared the river gorge and bridge. Calla lilys and marmot-like animals are among the added things to observe along the trail. The suspension bridge is long and high, and allows trekkers across single file. The views of the ocean, and up the Storm River gorge are very nice. Of course, this wouldn't be South Africa if someone wasn't operating a commercial adventure and here its kayaks to paddle up the River -- which can be tethered together to assure that the adventurers don't find themselves in too much adventure as by being swept by the current into the ocean. We reserved our river running adventures for later in our trip, but left with great pictures and happy memories of our hour plus at this site.

“Expensive to get in, Nothing extra-ordinary”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

We were recommended to visit the storm's River mouth by a German could we'd met during canopy tours. They charge the full days rate even in late afternoon which is currently 80 rands per person. It is nice enough hut nothing to blow you away. To get to the suspension bridge there is a moderate walk of about 400 meters then you can carry on up the hill to the viewing point. It is quite tough even for a fit 34 year old and the path didn't have any steps sell the way up. It can be slippery when wet. We saw giant african snails and dassies but nothing else in the water or on land. There is s restaurant and holiday cabins to hire. Overall we didn't think the money was well spent on this place. If you are after a walk by the beach then you can go and visit nature's valley or Plettenberg bay which are free.
