Storms River is a very beautiful region of the Garden Route which lies within the Tsitsikamma National Park. Cape Town lies 700km to the west and Port Elizabeth 200 km to the east.

The village is easily accessible by car, or bus, as it lies just off the N2. English, Afrikaans and Xhosa is spoken by the residents of this small settlement and the town has all the basics with an ATM, a hotel, a police station, a fire station, a health centre and a number of small grocery stores. The residents are friendly and welcoming and the town has a real community feel about it, with a relaxed and easy pace. 

On the outskirts of the village is where the majority of the Storms River residents live, in RDP housing provided free by the South African government. The residents have set up a community hall and a school, and there are a number of small shops scattered throughout the township. 

For the adventurous there is a selection of activities that run from the Tsitsikamma National Park.
