Thank you DuQues!
It isn't a good new for me (I'll be there next February), but I think that Tsitsikamma will be however wonderful.

Hi, I see that the suspension bridge and boardwalk is now open, can someone please confirm is it just open for the holiday period or will it now remain open, my parents will be in the area in March time, and would like to visit again?

A previous Sanparks press release stated: "Regional Manager Mvusy Songelwa said that construction on a new circular route with three additional suspension bridges is still in process. “We anticipate this new route will open in April and will enhance the visitor’s experience to Stormsriver Mouth even more. It will be a great addition to the existing route.”

This work is not finished yet, but the construction site is a real nightmare for any contractor.

Building material and equipment must be carried for nearly one kilometer up and down steps by the construction workers. This is hard work and is slowing down the process!

Nature is not always helping either.

Once this is finished, it will definitely make the walk an even more memorable one, if that is possible.

In the mean time the old walk have been repaired and the visitors are streaming to the suspension bridge.

This new circular route will be a huge attraction for the park and will quickly become a Garden Route highlight once its open
