Tsitsikamma National Park is an area of the Garden Route National Park known for its indigenous forests, dramatic coastline and hiking trails. The park encompasses deep gorges, local vegetation such as the Big Tree, a towering yellowwood, and a marine reserve made up of over 50 miles of coastline.
The park is a spectacular place for walking and viewing wildlife. Hiking enthusiasts will love the Otter Trail, a 25-mile trail along the shoreline that stretches from Storms River Mouth to beautiful Nature's Valley and is widely regarded as one of the finest trails in the world. For a shorter trip, hike the Mouth Trail, which crosses a suspension bridge over Storms River and leads to a lookout plateau. Along the shore, an abundance of marine life such as cape clawless otters, dolphins, tortoises and southern right whales can be spotted.
