A must stop off for a picnic. Beautiful peaceful forest area with lots of picnic spots and very safe well laid out trail. Suitable even of older people to walk. Even on a cold misty day it was exquisite

Waste of time and R170 as a non SA tourist! It is just a very short stroll through a wood, nothing more. So many better walks to do. Avoid!

Gorgeous walk through nature. Small entry fee of R40 per person but worth it if you want a quick walk. It's about a 20-min walk, you can take food and beverages inside too if you want to have a picnic in nature 😊. There are sometimes local vendors inside too, so defs pack in some extra cash to support their crafts!

The short walk through a forest is very nice, but the sound of the adjacent motorway is very disturbing.

We had such a lovely tranquil walk through the forest. You can stay as short or long as you want. There is a lot of information on the fauna and flora and lots of places to sit and experience the atmosphere. The R40 to enter the National Park also allows you to enter the zip line area and lookout point.

You must sign in at the main office on left on the N2 to Plett. After that you can have a walk within the forest. The permit allows you as well some kilometers further to go to the coast and have a walk there. Interesting place

Nice walk trough the forests, but not more than 15-20 min long. The noisy N2 close by is a spoiler of the forest experience. If you go there, ring insect repellent! Due to the limited length of the walk we thought it was not worth the drive and effort to go there.

This is a good spot to get the feel of the Knysna forest. Its an easy walk around, cool, well cared for with friendly staff. One feels quite safe walking here.
