Experience Tsitsikamma at its best!
Experience Tsitsikamma at its best! The 2-3 hour Kayak & lilo adventure is our most popular adventure activity. If you are keen to explore deeper into the Storms River Gorge, and experience the long, deep, quiet pools with deep caves and ancient forests then the kayak and lilo trip is for you!
We paddle from the harbour (next to the beach) across the ocean, passing underneath the suspension bridge and from there up the beautiful Storms River gorge.
After waving to all the wobbly-legged and somewhat jealous tourists photographing you from the suspension bridge, we continue the kayaking voyage up the river. And this is where the true adventure starts – paddling up the glorious Storms River, the ultimate treasure of Tsitsikamma National Park where you are about to go treasure hunting! We continue right into the bats’ cave and spend time gazing up in awe at the spectacular cliffs all around us – all from the comfort of our double sit-on-top kayaks.At the low-water point, we say goodbye to our kayaks and hello to our floater friends – the lilos. (A short information break for those who do not know: A lilo is a small inflatable boat and our unique ones are specially designed for this trip to access the narrow parts of the gorge). From here on we walk over a short section of rocks and then simply float deeper up the river on the lilos, weightlessly relishing in the serenity of this paradise and feeling insignificantly small as we ogle up at the sky-scraping cliffs surrounding us.
We’ve had kids as young as 5 and grandparents as old as, well… grandparents take the leap and enjoy the time spent on the water, so this is family-friendly fun that truly floats everyone’s boat.
As you can probably comprehend – this unique Storms River adventure is our most popular and best recommended trip by local and international tourists. Be sure not to miss the boat!
