Natures Valley Activities

The region boasts activities in abundance, so if lazing about on the beach is not your only objective, we have listed a number of options available.

• Hiking and Bird watching in Natures Valley: The trail to Salt River mouth begins a stones throw away from ‘The Wood’. The mouth can be reached via the coastline or through the forest. Speak to one of us and we’ll point you in the right direction. The forest route is a little more strenuous, as it goes over the mountain but offers breathtaking views and excellent birding. The coastal route on the other hand is no less beautiful so you might want to try a circular route. Do take care as you do need to be sure footed. Alternatively try the Kalandakloof trail. This trail begins opposite the camp site and winds along the bottom of the Grootrivier Pass. It follows the river through dense forest and banana plantations and heads up to the top of the pass to a viewpoint overlooking the lagoon and beach. This trail allows you to descend along the pass or via the circular forest route.

Maps for these and other trails are available at the trading store.

• Tstsikamma National Park: Visit this world famous National Park where the renowned Otter Trail begins. Dramatic and rugged coastline meets yellowood forest teaming with birdlife. Take a walk along the forest trails and perhaps brave the suspension bridge across the storms river mouth. Take along a picnic or try out the restaurant and curio shop.

• Bungy Jumping: At 216m high, this is the worlds highest commercial bungy jump, so if adrenaline is what you seek, look no further. Alternatively try the flying fox, a 200m cable slide (phoofie slide) onto the archway of the bridge. A combination of the two is also an option. If all this sounds a little crazy but you would still like to ‘experience’ the height, why not try a bridge walk.

• Tree Top Canopy Tours: Enjoy the forest from above. Cable slides wisk you from one location to the next, 30m above the forest floor. A unique adventure that can be safely enjoyed by the whole family.

• Birds of Eden: The largest single free flight aviary in the world, incorporating indigenous forest, waterfalls and elevated walkways. Previously caged birds from many parts of the world enjoy free flight here. Allow yourselves time to appreciate this experience.

• Monkeyland: An opportunity to interact with free roaming primates from all corners of the globe. Book for an excursion to see first hand the work that is being done.

• Tenikwa: A wildlife awareness centre offering intimate encounters with various small indigenous cats, birds and other endangered species.
