Indigenous Forests, The Storms River Canyon, Tsitsikamma National Park, Storms River Mouth Suspension Bridges, The Bat Cave and a great full body workout-

all of Tsitsikamma's main attractions wrapped up in a fun and unique river adventure,


Step 1... arrive

The 6hr activity begins in Storms River Village at Tube 'n Axe Lodge with a welcome, orientation briefing and kit up (30min)

Step 2...the drive

A 20min drive though thick indigenous forest gets us to our drop off point where each participant receives his/her own tube.

Step 3...the walk

From here its a 800m walk down into the Storms River Gorge (10min)

Step 4 ... get wet!

A final few do's and don'ts and safety demonstrations conclude the formalities and we set off down the narrow Storms River en-route to Tsitsikamma National Park.

Step 5...rejuvenate

Approximately 1km downstream of our starting point, the River valley narrows down into a narrow canyon with 110m high vertical fern clad walls 2m apart i places.

Step 6 ...the canyon

The start of the Narrow canyon marks 'The Point of No Return' and from here on its a 3,5km downstream tubing/bouldering experience with optional jumps

Step 7...boulder, step

Tubes are used as paddling craft as there are many long pools to traverse and in between many bouldering sections where portage is necessary.

Many of these boulder sections offer rock & tube jumps, and often small fun rapids (water level dependent)

Step 8...unwind

The journey on fresh drinkable water offers the ultimate way to rejuvenate in nature whilst giving you a full body workout at the same time

Step 9..paddle

The experience of Tubing the Red Route' section of The Storms River is somewhat similar to canyoning without the necessity for rope access.

Step 10...explore

The Red Route excursion take you into uncharted territory and a truly phenomenal geographical spectacle. This is the excursion that fascinated early adventurers and is the place where the spirit of adventure began almost 50 years ago on the Garden Route.

The score!

Our arrival at the Storms River Mouth in Tsitsikamma National Park marks the beginning of the end of our river trip.
