Garden of Eden
A little piece of paradise
If you are looking for a little piece of paradise and a relaxed afternoon away from the crowds, why not consider a visit to Garden of Eden. The indigenous forest is between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
You can bring your own picnic something to eat and listen to the birds. The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. It is also a great opportunity to explore and appreciate the forest with children. There are a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your ‘padkos’. Water and ablution facilities are available. The board walk meanders through the forest with beautiful scenery and bird watching and photography opportunities galore.
There’s also a market with African style products on sales and towards the right side with the N2 behind you, there are some incredibly tall trees. The trees are old, very interesting to read more about them.
A small entrance fee is asked, and parking is provided alongside the road.. A must stop in the Garden Route. Knysna is know for its forests and this way you can experience it without a effort on you way
