Stormsriver Adventures Goes Green in their Daily Operations

Stormsriver Adventures

Stormsriver Adventures is a leading tourism company that is committed to promoting responsible tourism. Based in the enchanting Tsitsikamma National Forest, the company offers a range of eco-adventure activities including the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour, Woodcutters Journey, Guided Hikes, and Team Building.

Stormsriver Adventures was one of the first activity companies to be accredited by Fair Trade Tourism in 2003, and after 20 years, the company still upholds the values and principles of responsible tourism. Lee-Marque Jansen, who is responsible for the Marketing and Public Relations of the company, explains that what they offer is more than just ziplining, it’s an experience!

“Although both ziplining and canopy tours use cables and similar safety equipment, the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is unique because it is offered in Tsitsikamma, where visitors can experience indigenous forest, birdlife, and environmental education. The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour system is in a pristine wilderness area with unsurpassed beauty, which makes it stand out compared to an average zipline.”, he says.

During the tour, visitors are accompanied by two qualified guides from local villages who ensure their safety and provide them with the best African experience, making sure that they leave knowing that “kumnandi eTsitsikamma – Local is Lekker.” The duration of the tour depends on the group size and can take 1½ to 2 hours. The guide will explain the ecology of the forest and not only mention but show you sustainable tourism and environmental practices.

Stormsriver Adventures is the first eco-adventure company to go green with solar, reduce plastic, and become 85% paperless in its operations. Anneline Wyatt, the MD of Stormsriver Adventures, assures us that the remaining 15% will be tackled over the next two years. CEO of Stormsriver Adventures, Mr. Ashley Wentworth, says “We are committed to doing our part to protect the environment. Installing solar panels is a significant step in our ongoing efforts to reduce our environmental impact and promote sustainable practices.”

Stormsriver Village is a must-stop on the Garden Route, and this company is a one-stop-shop for families and anyone traveling between Cape Town and Gqeberha. Other activities offered by Stormsriver Adventures include a tractor ride through the Plaatbos Nature Reserve of the Garden Route National Park called the Woodcutter Journey. Our guided hikes and team-building activities make sure we have green family fun activities suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
