Guided walking tours in the indigenous Knysna forest

IMGP0668r (2)Take a guided walking tour through the Knysna Forests with Meagan Vermaas of Forest Guided Tours.  An experienced and highly knowledgeable guide, Meagan offers two different walks:

“Forest Flora, Fauna, Legends and Lore” a 3.6 km easy trail to the Jubilee Creek Waterfall, and The Dalene Matthee 3.1km Krisjan se Nek “Circles in a Forest” moderate trail.

Forest Flora, Fauna, Legends and Lore takes hikers through the indigenous rainforest to explore its wonders and elusive inhabitants – and who knows which of them you might see! There are loeries and leopards, caracal and bush pig, honey badgers and bushbuck, sunbirds and Narina trogons. And of course, there are the elusive wild Knysna elephants… sightings are rare but there is indisputable evidence of the existence of at least one of these majestic creatures.

The Dalene Matthee “Circles in a Forest/Kringe in ‘n Bos” guided walk shows will allow you to step into the world of the Knysna woodcutters and their forest lore, the elephants, the ancient yellowwoods and onderbos that inspired Dalen Matthee to write her four famous novels set in the the Knysna forest.  You will discover old gold mining tunnels and woodcutter pits and experience the beauty of the pristine forest.


The walks are suited to individuals, school groups and special interest groups and families. A moderate level of fitness is required.

Costs are approximately R200 per person for groups of 1-5, R150 per person for groups of 6-10 and R125 per person for groups of 11-20.

Meagan will custom design walks around your interests and also takes bookings for full day tours and picnic hampers to enjoy in the forest.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
