    Bible verse

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 30, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of my favourite Bible verses:

    'The Lord on high is mightier, than the noise of many waters, yeah than the mighty waves of the sea' Psalm 93v4

    If you have visited this area you will undertsand why this plaque was put here... how very apt is it.

    The storms rage, the waves are unrelenting with strong currents, winds are high... and the Lord is mightier than all of nature's elements...

    Kinda puts things into perspective for us! :)

    Board games

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 30, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Sure, it was our honeymoon.. but we took the backgammon along too!!! :)

    It is one of our favourite games, where I mostly win ;) (Lance is the King of scrabble, I am the Queen of backgammon).

    On our last night, after a scrumptious meal, served at the park's restaurant, we settled in with a glass of wine and backgammon.

    Fondest memory: The wind came up quite sharply and the waves started crashing quite loudly outside.

    It is a sturdy log cabin, so we didnt feel at all in danger or anything, but we did feel like we were in the centre of a storm :) Which we love!

    This was our last night of honeymoon, and was a perfect finale we thought :)

    The name...

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 28, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The word 'Tsitsikamma' is a Khoisan word, meaning: 'place of much water'.

    Is this referring to the ice clear water for the river here?

    Who can say for certain.. it certainly is a beautiful and meaningful name for this area.

    The Tsitsikamma forest area is part of the well known area of the Garden Route, a well-trodden route between the eastern and western Cape.

    Arrival times?

    by Jenniflower Written Jun 28, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The park is open from 07:00 – 19:00, and there are security guards around whilst the gates are closed.

    You can only check in at 12:00 but can leave your suitcase at reception if you arrive earlier.

    You have to be out of your cabin quite early in the morning (9:00), which suited us down to the ground as we had a long drive back home to Cape Town then!

    Service was efficient, staff friendly, and it was a wonderful end to our honeymoon!

    Waterfall Trail

    by Travelchili Updated Mar 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seagull

    Favorite thing: Once you reach the waterfall and sit down to catch your breath, seagulls become your 'friends'. They are use to getting some goodies over there and thus, they are not afraid to literally sit to your lap. They are funny to observe at first, but can get a bit annoying after a while.

    Small beach@Tsitsikamma

    Favorite thing: If you want to visit the Park just for a day, it is best you arrive quite early - especially if it is during peak season.
    Parking areas are limited and only a certain amount of visitors per day.

    Storms River Mouth

    Favorite thing: If you desire, you can take a boat ride along the Stoms River Mouth.. I saw some happy faces in a few boats, so I assume that it was fun:)
