Concierge.com's insider take:
Stormsriver Village, next to Tsitsikamma National Park, is the epicenter for adrenaline sports. Land Rovers line up outside small B&Bs catering to backpackers, and adventure companies offer zip-lining and river tubing. Stormsriver Adventures offers a Tsitsikamma Canopy tour consisting of ten zip lines (called "slides" here) that take you between ten platforms 100 feet up in the indigenous forest. Half an hour away on the N2, an unmissable sign exhorts you to "Face Your Fear" by taking what's said to be the highest bungee jump in the world, courtesy of Face Adrenalin. Anyone not wanting to weigh in for the 700-foot free fall off the Bloukrans River Bridge can try the Flying Fox, a 600-foot cable zip line onto the arch underneath, or a bridge walking tour.
