Take a canopy tour through spectacular rainforest
Stormsriver Adventures is a rurally based eco adventure company situated in the heart of the majestic Tsitsikamma Forest region aptly named 'the garden of the Garden Route'. The company boasts adventure activities which include the world renowned Tsitsikamma Treetop Canopy Tour, Tsitsikamma Forest Tour (Woodcutters Journey), Hiking Trails, Team Building, Local Crafting Facility and a Catering Facility / Restaurant.
The Tsitsikamma Treetop Canopy Tour is the first of its kind in Africa. Most platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2½ to 3 hour tour.
The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rainforest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment.
Safety is paramount and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards.
Imagine the Tsitsikamma Forest... 30 meters above, as you gently glide on 10 slides to 10 platforms high up in giant trees. The platforms provide unbelievable views of this enchanting new world. Spend a few minutes relaxing while your guides enthusiastically explain the ecology of the forest - pointing out different trees and magnificent giant ferns way below. You may even sight the Knysna Loerie and the elusive Narina Trogon. About 3 hours later, you exit the forest having undertaken the journey of a lifetime. A delicious light lunch will be waiting for you at our Restaurant.
