Named after the Khoisan phrase that means “place of abundant water”, Tsitsikamma is renowned for its stunning coastline, dramatic rivers and indigenous forest. Proclaimed in 1964 as the first marine national park in Africa, Tsitsikamma offers a variety of activities to enjoy while on a South African safari. These activities include sailing, scuba diving, surfing, and sunbathing upon beautiful stretches of pristine beach.

Walkers and hikers will not be disappointed with the Tsitsikamma Mountains offering hiking trails of various levels, and the world-renowned Otter Trail. Daredevils can get their pulses racing with a leap off of the Bloukrans Bridge – the world’s highest bungee jump – and others can enjoy the restaurants, shops, tree-top canopy tours, canoeing and camping dotted around the region.

The region of Tsitsikamma is a delight for travellers on a South African safari, with its protected indigenous forest that contains the most amazing array of vegetation. Twitchers can spend their days enjoy the sightings of a wide variety of birdlife, including the African black oyster catchers, the orange-breasted sunbirds, the Knysna Loeries and the Nerina trogans.

Tsitsikamma is also a delight for lovers of history. A tour of the Khoisan caves, shell middens, rock, abandoned forestry operators and gravesites add a unique flavour of culture to any South African safari.

The pleasant climate of Tsitsikamma makes it an attractive destination for anyone on a South African safari, with hot summer months, and sometimes snow on the highest peaks of the Tsitsikamma Mountains in the winter.
