About Buffalo Bay Trail

If you are feeling active and want a stunning location to burn that energy or simply take a gentle walk then why not get on the Buffalo Bay Trail in the Goukamma Nature Reserve in Buffels Bay.

This 4.2 kilometer trail has two options, one circular route and the other is open-ended and should take you between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete.

Buffalo Bay Trail is easy and suitable for the whole family. Enjoy the lush vegetation, explore the Knysna forest and take a stroll on the beach. There is an abundance of wildlife around you and a vast range of bird species to be spotted. From certain points on the route or the Buffalo Bay beach itself, you can see the gentle giants gracing these waters during whale season. The fresh air is invigorating and being surrounded by nature will leave you feeling positive, motivated and give you a sense of calm after completing this wonderful trail.
