Kayaking & Lilo Adventure Sports.The unique kayak and lilo trip up the Storms River Mouth is the most popular activity. It's a close-up experience with Tsitsikamma's fabled Storms River. We begin paddling up the river in our kayaks, passing the bat cave, high cliffs, and breathtaking vistas along the way. At the rocks, we exit our kayaks and board the inflatable lilos to continue exploring the gorge and see parts of the Storms River that are not accessible by boat. After our 2-2 12 hour journey, we return to our business after a gentle wade further into the pristine valley and a few rock leaps. No prior knowledge is necessary; the tour is completely guided. If available, snorkel gear can be rented through Untouched Adventures.
