Storms River rest camp

A thick black column of smoke could be seen from afar as the restaurant complex in the Tsitsikamma section of Garden Route National Park (formerly known as Tsitsikamma National Park) caught alight on Friday November 25 - it was practically razed by the time fire services arrived, but they thankfully prevented the fire from spreading and affecting any accommodation units, hiking trails or water and electricity supplies. By Monday the 28th, SANParks and partners were looking at reopening a replacement shop and 300-seater marquee restaurant to cater for seasonal visitors.
