This beautiful forest is a unique woodland area bounded by the Ohlanga River and the sea. After centuries it still remains unspoiled and is home to a large number of animals and birds.
The Hawaan Forest also contains many different tree species and is a must for a nature and bird lover. In an attempt to continue preservation of the area, the Hawaan trails are not open to the public but one can join a guided trail through the unique ecosystem inhabited by bush pig, genet, duiker and sometimes, phythons!
