Tsitsikamma Woodcutters Journey


Come and Experience a World of Diversity in One Forest - A Unique Tsitsikamma Experience You'll Never Forget!!!

Activity Description

Stormsriver Adventures is a professional eco-friendly entity situated in the heart of the majestic Tsitsikamma Forest region. The company boasts eco and adventure activities which include the Woodcutters Journey. Experience the uniqueness of the Tsitsikamma Forest on a journey down the old Stormsriver Pass through the indigenous forest from the comfort of a specially-designed vehicle. Follow the elephant migratory route, passing yellowwoods, and stinkwoods, while hearing about the history of the area and the indigenous fauna and flora.

We take you back centuries ago, observed silently by giant trees, gently nodding their green heads in the soft Tsitsikamma breeze. The tour takes place in a pristine wilderness environment carefully selected for its uniqueness and unsurpassed beauty allowing clients to absorb the beauty of the indigenous forest. Information is presented by trained professional guides explaining culture, fauna, and flora such as the Knob Wood tree originally used for toothache by the Khoisan, identifying plants such as the “Bushman’s bedding” which was used as a natural insect
repellent. The unique Khoi word “TSITSIKAMMA” which means “place of many waters”.Bird sounds such as the Fish Eagle’s call and the shy Narina Trogon add value to the customer experience especially when these birds are visible.

The historical Stone building was used as a hunting lodge and meeting place for hunters and is the oldest building in Stormsriver. The Woodcutters Journey ensures a personal experience standing next to a giant Hard Pear tree feeling like a dwarf by this unique creation. You will encounter beautiful Tree Ferns hundreds of years old.
Guides deliver extensive narration to clients throughout the whole tour.
Discover nature at its purest on our “Woodcutters Journey”

Customer Reviews

Our group had an absolutely amazing time! Everything was well organized. We left on time and the tour was very interesting! We appreciated the extra blankets provided on board since it got a bit chilly in the forest. And the driver and tour guide was very flexible allowing the guests to stop and get off where they wanted to take photos, which was great. We enjoyed the snack box provided half way, as well as the opportunity to stretch our legs - what a lovely picnic spot. Thank you for your excellent service! We highly recommend going on this tour. - Sue
