Most of our National Parks get excellent exposure through the various trip reports. A visit to Stormsriver Mouth does not really qualify for a trip report, so maybe we should start a tread where forumites can post their photos and comments of visits to Stormsriver Mouth.

Great idea HoepHoep. Storms River is awesome and I hope to go back there soon!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

We have visited Tsitsikamma a few times. My first visit was with my parents when I was about 8 years old. During that December holiday my parents gave us (my twin brother and me) a set of snorkeling kit each...we spend days in the snorkeling pool,on the southern side of the park, and that is where my love of diving has started!! :wink:

Hi TheunsH

My first visit dates back to 1969.

This must be the pool you are referring to. Photo from a previous trip. (Weather not to great for a photo.)

What great pics. Congrats to you all. Brought back memories of wonderful not-too-distant-Christmases... (with Father Christmas arriving on a boat... and the children and visitors joining the communal Christmas 'eve and Christmas 'morn church...) The bridge, the flora, the caves, the boat ride upriver to the bat caves, the millions of bats, etc. etc.

Hopefully this December we shall visit again...

Micetta, this is a must!

Seems as if it is a little bit stormy there now... :|


Otter trail hikers being evacuated


CAPE TOWN - Hikers were being evacuated from the Otter Trail on Wednesday as bitterly cold and stormy weather swept the Southern Cape coast, the Garden Route National Park said.

The picturesque 43km, five-day trail had been closed until further notice, park spokesman Zanemvula Gozongo said.

He said rangers went in on foot on Wednesday morning to evacuate the 29 hikers currently on the trail, after park authorities decided that the massive waves pounding the coast posed a threat to their safety.

Much of the trail runs along the rugged Tsitsikamma coastline, and hikers also have to make river crossings.

Gozongo said the park’s rest camp at Nature’s Valley had also been closed due to a surging sea and high winds.

It was earlier reported that lapping waves had reached as high as the top of the wheels of hikers’ cars parked at Nature’s Valley.

The weather service has warned of snow, rain, gale force winds and waves of up to nine metres in the area, as a series of cold fronts sweep through.

The park website says hikers must be prepared to hike over rough terrain, steep ascents and descents “and under any weather conditions”.

People who want to walk the trail have to book six months ahead.

Yes, indeed, Movinon! Crossing the suspension bridge allows one to explore the other side of the river bank... :thumbs_up:
