Tsitsikamma Segway Tour is great fun

Tsitsikamma Segway tours

Tsitsikamma Segway Tours is located in Formosa St, Storms River Village.  This is one of South Africa’s great adventure villages with all manner of fun to be had.  One of my favourite experiences in Storms River Village is the Segway tour.

I found them to be highly professional, safe and plenty of fun.  The guides are extremely friendly and helpful and in a very short time have you trained to use a Segway like an old hand.

The Tsitsikamma Forest which surrounds the Storms River Village is magnificent.  The dense undergrowth and towering trees envelop you in a timeless and peaceful cocoon. A visit to the depths of the forest is a wonderful experience.

Getting there on a Segway is not only fun, but also environmentally friendly.  If you are not familiar with a Segway, it is a 2-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered, green, personal transporter.

Each tour begins with a training session.  The competent guides will fit you out with a helmet and provide you with a Segway.  Nobody wants to wear somebody else’s sweaty helmet so Tsitsikamma Segway Tours gives each visitor their own hair protector to place under the helmet!

The training includes learning how to get on and off, turn, stop and start and then make use of a small track that has twists and turns and even has a ramp.  This takes about 15 minutes.  Once you are a competent driver, you can set off on your tour.

Tsitsikamma Segway Tours offers two tour options, namely a one hour and a two hour tour.  Both tours involve a trip down the main street of Storms River Village and a visit to the forest.  The forest has a myriad of footpaths and your guide will take you on the most appropriate path depending on the weather, season and your level of skill.

The two hour tour is simply longer and goes deeper into the forest and the guide will lead you to the famous and majestic 1000 year old Tsitsikamma Big Tree.

What makes this tour excellent is that you get to drive a gravity defying Segway and that you get to visit the heart of one of South Africa’s great forests.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour.  It is no wonder that they have won numerous awards and I can highly recommend that you book a tour with Tsitsikamma Segway Tours.  Booking is essential! To book online, click here.

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.

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!
