Explore Tsitsikamma National Park's Storms River Gorge on this kayak and lilo tour. Go deep into the park to see the ancient forests, the deep caves, and quiet pools with a guide who will shed light on the flora and fauna of the area through informative commentary. Paddle a double, sit-on-top kayak, suitable for beginners; then switch to a small, inflatable boat called a lilo, specifically designed for reaching narrow, shallows spaces where even kayaks can't reach. All equipment and instruction provided.
What to Expect
You paddle from the harbour (next to the beach), across the ocean, then under the Storm River suspension bridge and up the beautiful Storms River Mouth.If sea conditions don’t allow for ocean paddling, you will take a short guided hike through the Tsitsikamma Forest and start your kayak trip from inside the river mouth!

This is where the true kayaking adventure begins – paddling the Storms River, the pinnacle of Tsitsikamma National Park. After waving to all the tourists photographing you from the suspension bridge, you continue the kayak trip up the Storms River. You paddle right into the bats cave and spend time gazing up at the magnificent and spectacular cliffs all around you, all from the comfort of our double sit-on-top kayaks.

At the low-water point you disembark your kayaks and jump on your unique lilos. (A lilo is small inflatable boat that has specially designed for this trip to access the narrow sections of the gorge). From here you walk and float over a short section of rocks and simply wade deeper up the river on the lilos. What a stunning view it is, lying on a lilo at water level, and gazing up to cliffs that touch the sky! Upon reaching your destination, you simply turn around and float back down river to your kayaks.

For the young, brave and adventurous (and the young, brave and adventurous at heart!) You can take the opportunity to leap off the overhangs cliff walls of the gorge into deep pools. The cliff jumping adds a good dose of adrenaline for your trip back, as well as some good laughs, friendly encouragement and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities to brag to all your buddies when you get home. Cliff Jumping is not compulsory – you can simply enjoy the spectacle as you leisurely float in the long pools below. Kids as young as 5 and grandparents (as old as grandparents) take the leap and enjoy the liloing, so we can truly say that this activity can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Excellent trip, but limited kayaking (partly due to weather)

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Untouched Adventures, which we found to be a very professional and well-organized outfit. Our guides Norman and Clifton did an excellent job and made everyone feel very safe (while also being great fun). The amount of time spent kayaking...More

You are in kayaks of two.. so if you are not very fit you could go with a fitter friend or with one of the guides if on your own.
