Stormsriver Adventures is a rurally based Eco Adventure Company situated in the heart of the majestic Tsitsikamma Forest region aptly named The Garden of The Garden Route. The company boasts adventure activities which include the world-renowned Tsitsikamma Treetop Canopy Tour, Tsitsikamma Forest Tour (Woodcutters Journey), Hiking Trails, Team Building, Local Crafting Facility and a Catering Facility/Restaurant.

The Tsitsikamma Treetop Canopy Tour is the first of its kind in Africa. Safety is paramount, and the zip line system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards. Imagine the Tsitsikamma Forest, 30 meters above, as you gently glide on 10 slides to 10 platforms high up in Giant trees. The platforms provide an unbelievable view of this enchanting New World.

Spend a few minutes relaxing while your zip line Guides enthusiastically explain the ecology of the forest – pointing out different trees and magnificent giant ferns way below. You may even sight the Knysna Loerie and the elusive Narina Trogon. About 3 hours later you exit the forest, having undertaken the journey of a lifetime. A delicious light refreshment will be waiting for you at our restaurant. The Woodcutters Journey gives you the amazing experience of exploring the Tsitsikamma forest from the comfort of an all-terrain vehicle. There are 100 different tree species to see, including the beautiful giants of the forest, the Outeniqua yellowwoods.

Lose yourself in the dappled sunlight filtering through the canopy above. Learn about the history, the fauna and flora of one of the most pristine and sensitive areas in the world. Then relax and enjoy a delicious two-course meal under the trees at the picnic site on the banks of the Storms River. Perfect for the whole family, no strenuous walking, just beautiful scenery, fantastic knowledge and good food! Nature at its purest!
