Destination Big Tree – Tsitsikamma (N2 Stormsriver)
BBB Bungee – Bloukrans Bridge Beckons
Calling all adrenaline junkies. It is time to hit the road again… Take the N2 out of Port Elizabeth as you head for Bloukrans Bridge. Stop off at Jeffreys en-route for a shot of caffeine (give breakfast a miss until after the big event)!
For many adrenaline junkies, a highlight of visiting the spectacular Tsitsikamma is to bungee jump off the Bloukrans Bridge – an arched road bridge that is the highest in the African continent, standing 216 metres above the floor of the gorge. Here you will get to experience the world’s highest commercial bungee jump.If you prefer keeping upright there is also a Bridge Walk across the gorge or a scenic stroll along the catwalk to the top of the arch. The bridge, which is located 40km from Plettenberg Bay.
Tree Top Canopy Tour Tsitsikamma
For a unique adventure, why not go ziplining across the Kruis River? This exciting experience is available within the Tsitsikamma region, 8km from the Storms River Bridge. There are ten slides in all, the longest of which is 211m, and those brave enough can zip across the river gorge, up to 50m above the water. You can control the speed of your trip across the gorge, so that you can stop en route to take in the spectacular scenery. Guides offer commentary about the area. Quad biking tours, wall climbing and abseiling are also on offer.
The Tsitsikamma canopy tour is every adrenaline junky’s dream. Unlike the bungee, which takes a split second, the tour is prolonged and takes up to three hours. Taking the canopy tour in Tsitsikamma is not just about ziplining, it is a layered, unique experience that draws a lot from the surrounding area. If you love nature as much as you love adventure, the canopy tour offers a good balance.
The canopy tour is not for those of us who do not enjoy heights. The longest of its ten slides measures 91 metres in length. Each slide ends on a 30m high platform constructed in the trees. If you’re not a fan of the high places, a must do is the Segway Tours through the forest.

Somewhere you can get away from it all and enjoy stunning scenic coastal landscapes bordered by cliffs and lush vegetation. Somewhere you can take in a bit of beach life and lots of vitamin Sea without being trampled underfoot by crowds. This little hidden corner on the Garden Route is Eersterivier.
