Tsitsikamma is derived from the San word for ‘place of abundant water’. It’s not hard to see why when looking out onto its vistas.
Tsitsikamma is an area of land between the Tsitsikamma mountains and the south coast of South Africa. Described as ‘the garden of the Garden Route’, the area offers beautiful forest scenery and plenty to do within it. The protected paradise of the Tsitsikamma forest is a nature-lover’s dream. Ancient trees climb into the sky while a plethora of birds chirp and sing in the distance. Tsitsikamma has something for both adrenaline junkies and those who prefer a slower pace. Bungee jumping, canopy tours and fantastic hospitality all come together at Tsitsikamma.
Tsitsikamma’s prime location on the Garden Route means that it is a short distance from many coastal towns and their annual happenings.

The festival brings together the best offerings of the South African film industry as well as many talented local chefs. Knysna is a short drive from Plettenberg Bay and hosts an annual Oyster Festival in July of each year.
