Nukakamma Canoe Trail Overnight Trip
- About 2 hours
Nukakamma meaning “grassy water”, is the Khoisan name for Sundays River because of its verdant grassy banks. Nukakamma Canoe Trail is a much sought after two day flat-water trail along the Sundays River, which is situated some 40kms from Port Elizabeth (a mere half hour’s drive). The Nukakamma Canoe Trail is the only Green Flag Status Canoe Trail in South Africa.
The journey begins aboard our 4 metre double canoes with a 13km trip along the Sundays River from our premises to your overnight accommodation and a 13km canoe trip back the following day. We can accommodate a maximum of 12 people on a trail and the trails can be extended to 2 nights at a discounted rate. For safety reasons we do not allow less than 6 people on the trail at any one time.
The river is on average about 2m deep at high tide except at the mouth where it is much shallower. Depending on weather conditions, the journey can take anything from 3 to 5 hours, according to the tide and the wind.
The accommodation is an overnight two-roomed log cabin with two three-tiered wooden bunk-beds, fitted with foam rubber mattresses. It also has a covered barbecue area and is equipped with two picnic tables and some braai utensils.
Experience the thrill and excitement of the area with the bird life ranging to approximately 210 recorded species and watching out for Mullet fish actively jumping into or over the canoes. Keep your eyes peeled for Kudu, Bushbuck, Porcupine, Cape Otter, Vervet Monkeys and other wildlife in the bush across the river. Finally, finish your day off by enjoying a barbeque with the view of a spectacular sunset.

This place is getting very bad and you pay more for less. You not allowed to overnite to fish at night anymore. You have to leave the caravan or house at nine. Why I am asking at nine what time must I stand up to to start unpacking and also when must I eat breakfast at my own home why did I come camping. This is the only place you must left at nine and they charge you the most for the poorest services. What is on standard in you site. You warn us to bring nothing because of the break ins. I GIVE YOU NOTHING AND I WILL NEVER COME HERE AGAIN
