Kayak and Segway combo

Combo of Storms River Kayak & Lilo and 2 Hour "RIDE MORE" Segway experience

Storms River Mouth and Tsitsikamma

Activity Description

“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!

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. Please note that if the sea is rough, you have to hike to the Suspension Bridge (along a boardwalked trail), where we then hike along the river from the suspension bridge up to the jetty to where you then get on onto your kayaks. This 1km hike takes about 30 min

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 Stormsriver. 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 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!

WhereWe are located INSIDE Tsitsikamma National Park, at Storms River Mouth. Our office overlooks the Storms River Mouth and ocean, and we are tucked nicely underneath the restaurant. From Plettenberg Bay we are approximately a 45km drive down the N2 towards Port Elizabeth. Take the RIGHT hand turn "Tsitsikamma National Park", and drive to the Park Gate. From the entry of the National Park there is only one road, so you can't get lost! Follow this road to the very end, park in the carpark and follow the red Untouched Adventures signs underneath the restaurant to the Storms River Harbour. From Jeffreys Bay we are approximately 1 hours drive down the N2 towards Plettenberg Bay. After you drive over the Storms River Bridge and pass the petrol station, pass Storms River Village, and turn LEFT at the "Tsitsikamma National Park" sign and drive to the Park Gate. (This left hand turn is before the toll gates - so if you've passed the Bungy and are at the Toll Gates, you've gone too far!).

Customer Reviews

Just want to say a big thank you to Jay Dinise and a wonderful lady Estelle. You people made our adventure so much more pleasurable Thank you - Cristian Silva


This was such an awesome experience. First time ever doing Segway and extra bonus going through the Tsitsikamma Forest and learning more about it. We were lucky that it was only myself and my son who where on it and was loads of fun. Unfortunately we had a crash 600metres from the end but our guide was very good and calm and had a first aid kit ready for all the cuts and scraps. Our guide was able to take photos and videos of us on the Segways going through the forest which I really appreciated as its such an amazing memory. I can definitely recommend this, and would LOVE to do it again! - Cathy Terry


It was an amazing experience. The guides were excellent. We enjoyed it very much and look forward to come and do it again . - Joubert van der Westhuizen


Was the Best day ever !!!!!!!!!!!!! - LODEWIKUS OLIVIER


We really enjoyed our Segway experience. Going through the forests was beautiful and a fantastic experience. Something we had never done before. Our guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and our safety was always his first priority while having a lot of fun. I would do it again. I would highly recommend the RIDE MORE Segway experience. - Brett Hewson
