"Our favourite!" The 2 hour Storms River Kayak & Lilo Adventure is our most popular adventure activity in Tsitsikamma National Park! If you are keen to explore deeper into the Storms River Gorge in Tsitsikamma, and experience the long, deep, quiet pools, then the Kayak and Lilo trip is for you!

Using the same route as the 1 hour Kayak trip, we paddle from the Harbour next to the small beach across the ocean, then under the Suspension Bridge and up the beautiful Storms River Mouth. If sea conditions don't allow for ocean paddling, we take a short guided hike through the Tsitsikamma Forest and start our kayak trip from inside the river mouth!
This is where the true Kayaking adventure begins - paddling the Storms River, the pinnacle of Tsitsikamma National Park. After waving to all the tourists photographing you from the Suspension Bridge, we continue the kayak trip up the Stormsrivier. We paddle right into the bats cave and spend time gazing up at the magnificent and spectacular cliffs all around us, all from the comfort of our double sit-on-top kayaks.
At the low-water point (where the 1 hour kayak trip turns around) we disembark our kayaks and we jump on our unique Lilo's. (a Lilo is an inflatable mattress that we’ve had specially made for this trip). From here we walk and float over a short section of rocks and simply wade deeper up the river on the Lilo's. What a stunning view it is, laying on a Lilo at water level, and gazing up to cliffs that touch the sky! At reaching a certain point, we simply turn our Lilo’s around and float back down river to our Kayaks!
For the young, brave and adventurous (and the young, brave and adventurous at heart!) we take the opportunity up Storms River to leap off overhangs in the cliff walls into deep pools in the gorge. The cliff jumping adds a good dose of adrenaline for your trip back, as well as some good laughs, friendly encouragement and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities to brag to all your buddies when you get home. Cliff Jumping is not compulsory - you can simply enjoy the spectacle as you leisurely float in the long pools below. We've had kids as young as 6 and grandparents (as old as grandparents!) take the leap and enjoy the Lilo-ing, so we can truly say that this activity can be enjoyed by the whole family!
The Lilo trip is our most popular and most recommended trip by local and international tourists, so be sure not to miss out on this unique adventure!

If the ocean is unsafe due to weather conditions or any other reason not suitable to kayak over, we change our "Kayak & Lilo" trip to one of our other exciting trips: the "Boat & lilo" trip or the Hike, Kayak & Lilo adventure! The Boat and Lilo Trip uses the same route as the Kayak and Lilo, but instead of kayaking across the ocean, we use the high speed rubber duck boat to zoom us safely across the ocean and then drop us off inside the calm river mouth from where we commence with our paddling and lilo-ing up river. The Hike, Kayak and Lilo Adventure utilises the Suspension Bridge Hiking Trail, and provides an educational hike with one of our informative guides to the Suspension Bridge, followed by the Kayak and Lilo up the Storms River Mouth.
