A specially designed off road vehicle in camouflaged green with a yellow canopy leads you to the resting spot of historic wagons that once travelled the forest. Guides take you along the elephant trail disclosing the mysteries of the trees that stand as natural pillars in the Tsitsikamma kingdom. Stinkwoods, yellowwoods and tree ferns create shade to shelter the earthy smell of soil and moss. Indigenous fauna and flora reveal creation with the knowledge of tour guides.
'Woodcutters' refresh at picnic tables alongside the Storms River with tea, coffee and apple pie (served on the tea trips) or lasagna with salad and apple pie for dessert (served on lunch trips - wine and beer available by arrangement). In truth the magnificent of these giant trees would defeat any woodcutter and challenge any tree-hugger. This 3 hour excursion is a comfortable journey through a dense treed heaven with the sound of the rushing river and bird calls as a cappella accompaniment.
