The Big Tree is the largest tree in the Eastern Cape standing at 36.6 meters tall and is a whopping 800 years old.

This giant Yellowwood tree is home to an abundance of bird life living in the Hogsback area including the Narina Trogan, Orange Thrush and Bush Cap. It is not only the birds who make use of the tree, but also the Qabimbola people (a name used for African people that paint their faces red), who collect subssap, bark and other substances form around the tree to make their face paint with.

From the Big Tree you can venture down on a steep hike to the Madonna Falls, or you can take a relaxing walk towards Swallow Tail Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. Make sure you bring along your energy, binoculars and your camera for a fun filled day with lots to see.
