Motorbike Road Trip: Storm's River Mouth

Written by daveswart

Many visitors to Plettenberg Bay use Amakaya Backpackers as a base for road trips into the surrounding countryside. A highly recommended road trip is Tsitsikamma and Storm’s River Mouth and we offer our backpackers a unique way to explore this area – on a motorbike!


It’s good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end” – Ernest Hemingway. We say that the journey and the destination are both equally important and, when you take a motorbike tour with Amakaya Backpackers, the journey will be as incredible as the destination!

Storm’s River Mouth is 55km from Plettenberg Bay, along an incredibly beautiful stretch of highway flanked on either side by Fynbos and indigenous forest. What better way to experience the thrill of travel and Tsitsikamma National Park than from a motorbike? Along the way, there are a number of exciting stops including the amazing Bloukrans Bridge – home of the World’s Highest Commercial Bridge Bungy at 216m! Ziplining is popular in Tsitisikamma and you can choose to stop at the Waterfall Zipline or the Treetop Zipline for some high-flying fun! Charming Storm’s River Village is home to Segway Tours, Blackwater Tubing and biking in the forest – it’s a non-stop adventure.


But Storm’s River Mouth, the final destination, will take your breath away; forest, waterfalls, swimming coves, crashing waves and rock pools. It’s undoubtedly the jewel of the Tsitsikamma National Park and there is plenty to do and see there – Untouched Adventures offers snorkelling, kayaking, scuba diving and a wicked kayak/lilo adventure into the Storm’s River Gorge or you can explore one of the 4 different hikes around the mouth.



For backpackers looking for serious adventure, a road trip with Amakaya Backpackers into Tsitsikamma and Storm’s River ticks all the boxes: freedom, thrills and adventure. Check out our Motorbike Tours for more Information or Book Your Stay Now
