STORMS RIVER VILLAGE - destination for art lovers and tourists

Updated: Jun 16, 2020

This little villages offers a wide spectrum of art by a diverse group of local artists. Their work can be viewed and purchased at Art-for-All Gallery and Art @ Tsitrus. Art courses suitable for beginners as well as experienced artists are offered by at the Art-for All Studio.


But the charming village offers much more than art. It nestles in the heart of the forests and in the foothills of the majestic Tsitsikamma mountain range. The very name conjures up images of mystery and suspense, adventure, drama and romance; of primal forests where the ghosts of woodcutters and long-gone elephants roam. Where, on a moonlit, star-filled night, one may hear the ring of a pick on rock in salute to long-departed road builders. It is a village where you will be entranced and entertained, pampered, excited and enchanted. But don’t take our word for it – come see for yourself!
