Storms River Mouth Rest Camp


The Storms River Mouth Rest Camp sits just up from the dramatic Indian Ocean coastline in the in the beautiful Tsitsikamma Coastal National Park. The camp is spread along the beautiful coastline bordered by lush forested mountains behind. It offers a large selection of chalets, self-catering suites, honeymoon cottages, communal forest huts and camping.

For the chalets, there is a choice of two and four beds, and all are en suite with comfortable beds but basic amenities. The Oceanette chalets have a living area, kitchenette and large verandah. Most of the chalets either have sea or mountain views.

The main building has an a la carte restaurant, bar, communal seating area, small gift shop and provides daily housekeeping and a laundry service.

The Camp is a perfect base for self-guided exploration walks into the National Park and along the coastal footpath. Of particular interest is the flora that grows in this Mediterranean-like climate. Rock hyrax (an unlikely ancestor of the elephant) can be seen in abundance around the camp itself. While offshore between June and October, southern right whales and large pods of dolphins and smaller porpoises can be spotted. The area is also home to the Cape clawless otter and shy African black oystercatcher, which can both occasionally be spotted along the shoreline. The forests of this region are rich in botanical interest and, with luck, the elusive blue duiker and the colourful, near-endemic Knysna lourie could be seen.

We have just received the feedback form from you for our recent trip to South Africa which I will fill out shortly but I also wanted to thank you personally for organising us such a fantastic trip. The sheer variety of scenery and activities was amazing and the accommodation was uniformly excellent. We enjoyed good weather for our first few days in Cape Town allowing us get the best from Table Mountain as well as travel down to the Cape of Good Hope. A storm front did give a couple of wet days but this had little impact on our wine tasting in Franschhoek. In Hermanus we were fortunate to spot an early southern right whale as well as a humpback. We absolutely loved Montusi mountain lodge – what a view! We were also glad we visited the battlefields and the drive to Fugitive’s Drift lodge was quite enjoyable although I will never complain about potholes in the UK again. The suites at Tanda Tula were amazing and well beyond anything we have previously experienced on safari. The wildlife viewing for mammals was excellent with great sightings of lions and rhino in particular. Once again, many thanks and it’s now time for us to start our diet as we ate and drank rather too well.
