Misty Mountain Reserve is surrounded by many wild animal sanctuaries and adventurous activities including quad biking, canopy tours, bungy jumping, Ziplining, Segway and much more. The incredibly beautiful area of land that lies between the Tsitsikamma Mountains and the sea stretches west to the Bloukrans River and east to Eerste River and is named after the San word that means a place of abundant water. The area is like a treasure trove; overflowing with protected indigenous forest that bears ancient trees like yellowwood, hard pear, stinkwood, and ironwood; fynbos covered landscape and the appearance of entrancing animals and birds, like the shy Knysna Loerie.
Described as the garden of the garden route, the Tsitsikamma actually deserves a more vivid description to encapsulate the beauty of the place. Far from being a garden, the Tsitsikamma is a place where magic and the ancient have merged to create a fairy-tale.
The Tsitsikamma forest is a huge protected conservation area that supports an incredibly diverse ecosystem. It is eons old and trees tower above one as one walks in the immediate cool and shade their protective cover creates; the floor of the forest an intricate trail of ferns, moss and fragile fungi.
But it is the waters contained in rivers that have carved their way through mountains to create spectacular gorges that have earned the area its unusual name. From these trickle streams that wind their way through vegetation, complete with crystal clear pools that glisten over river pebbles. The deep gorges widen as the rivers make their way to the sea through a series of kloofs and waterfalls. Storms River mouth is one of the most magnificent of these, complete with suspension bridge that spans the mouth and offers visitors incredible views.
