The Tsitsikamma National Park is an 80 km area of coastline and forest that straddles the border between the Eastern and Western Cape.

There are a number of trails in the park with the most well-known one being the Otter Trail. This 41 km trail is one of the best in the world. It takes 5 days to complete with huts being available at the overnight stops.

One of the biggest tourist attractions in the Tsitsikamma National Park is the the world's highest bungee jump which is 216 metres high.

There are two camps in the reserve. The first is Storms River which offers hutted accommodation as well as a caravan park. The other is Nature's Valley Rest Camp offers some hutted accommodation and camp sites.
