The Tsitsikamma Village Inn offers 49 beautiful and individually decorated rooms. This historic hotel, offering scenic accommodation in Storms River along the Garden Route of South Africa, was established in 1946. This hotel is situated in the Storms River Village tucked away in the lush Tsitsikamma forest, close to Storms River Mouth, in the Tsitsikamma National Park. This historic South African hotel has served as a stop-over for travellers for more than a century. Most of the rooms are situated around a typical Village green. These buildings reflect many of the different building styles that were to be found in the Cape Colony during the 1800s.

Tsitsikamma is where you will find some of the most pristine forest areas and forest trails in the whole of the Garden Route, equalled only by the forests in the Knysna area.
Most of the indigenous forests in the western section of the Garden Route fall within the Tsitsikamma National Park. Commercial plantations in the area are also regulated as to not impact on water catchment areas and wildlife. The Park not only conserves indigenous flora and fauna but also marine life as it incorporates a marine belt stretching 5.5km into the ocean.
Explore the beautiful indigenous forests in Storms River on one of the many hiking trails in the area. The trails extend from the Storms River Village, Storms River Mouth and trail a little further out, and vary in distances and terrain for every kind of explorer. Trails extend out to the Storms River Mouth, Sandy Bay, and some include a part of the famous Otter Trail.
Additional activities in the Tsitsikamma includes The Bitou Art Gallery, the Storms River Centre Arts and Crafts, the Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary, Birdwatching in the Tsitsikamma and Mountain Biking. To read more about these activities, click on the read more button below.
