Enchanting Knysna Forest

Did you know that two of our hiking Trails in the Knysna Forest received “Green Flag” status?

Both Perdekop (9.5km nature walk) and Olifants hiking trail in Diepwalle were accredited by the Hiking Organisation of Southern Africa during May 2015.

What does this mean? This is a global benchmark for hiking trails and includes the following criteria: Conservation status, health and safety measures, cleanliness and maintenance, sustainability and management.

Take a picnic basket, put on comfortable shoes and enjoy the beauty of our Forest. Do not forget your camera.

Both trails are easy enough if you can spend hours in a shopping mall. There are pools in the streams where one can cool down and take in the greenery.

Yes, you can drink the stream water although it is brown. This is due to tannins from leaves in the water.
