About Platbos Forest Trail

Platbos Forest is a privately owned indigenous forest that is Africa's southernmost forest, and a rare remnant of the Sandwoud. Some of the trees are said to be up to 1000 years old. The guided or self-guided woodland trails for bird and nature lovers are suitable for all ages. Footpaths are wide, gradients are gentle and there is protection from harsh coastal winds and sun. Facilities include a picnic site and ablutions. Pre-booking is essential.
