Hiking in Knysnas Forests

Camping in the forest Knysna

The Elephant Walk

The walk starts at the Diepwalle Forest Station. You can get maps and permits from the office. It is about 20km long and should take about 6-7 hours to walk. But it offers three sections which are colour coded. The shorter routes are 9km(3-4hrs), 7km (2-3hrs) and 6,5km (2-3hrs). The trail takes you through magnificent forests with beautiful streams to rest by.
