Tsitsikamma is a Khoi word meaning “place of abundant or sparkling water”. The area is covered in large tracts of indigenous forest and fynbos. The crisp forest air invigorates the mind, body and soul as you walk among the vivid greens of the surrounding fauna and marvel at the majestic trees which cover the area. Deep river gorges cleft the plateau as they make their way down to the sea, creating spectacular waterfalls and deep kloofs. The spectacular sounds, sights and smells of the forest transport you to another world, a natural paradise far from the stress of everyday city life, and allow you to rejuvenate in an astoundingly beautiful setting.
Towns in the Tsitsikamma area include Joubertina, Kareedouw, Krakeelrivier, Langkloof and Storms River, each with their own unique characters, characteristics, history and charm.
