Explore our indigenous forest and perhaps spot the elusive Knysna Loerie on Africa`s first tree-top experience - the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour.
Play golf or polo on world class courses and fields, or take an exhilarating plunge at the world`s highest bungy jump at Bloukrans Bridge, less than 40 minutes away.

Enjoy the wonderful birdlife
To the ocean or the forest glades

Cob, Grunter or Leervis might take a bite
Try your hand at a sunset braai
