To the East ….
Blackwater Tubing also known as Stormsriver Tubing is the ultimate adventure that derives its name from the colour of the Storms river water. The ‘black water’ colour is casued by tannin leaching out of the plant matter much like tea. The Storms River water is palatable but its ph is too low to sustain any significant aquatic life resulting in a clear rocky river bed lined by palmiet grass and the majestic Tsitsikamma trees.
Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours – offering a unique eco-adventure which takes place high above the forest floor where you will be surrounded by spectacular scenery. Steel cables link a series of ten wooden platforms built high up in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. Visitors are fully harnessed as they glide from tree to tree. The three hour guided tour gives visitors the opportunity to feel part of the forest, to learn about the ecology, the trees and the giant ferns.
