About King Edward VII Picnic Site

In the heart of the Outeniqua forests of the Garden Route lies the beautiful King Edward VII Picnic Site. This comprises a few picnic tables and benches with barbecue facilities, all nestled within the splendour of tall, lush trees and forest ferns. The Outeniqua Yellowwood Tree, more than 650 years old, looms 40 metres over is welcome visitors and boasts a bole circumference of seven metres. Toilets and fresh water are available to picnickers.

The White Elephant Hiking Trail is an eight kilometre circular trail that passes through this site. There is also a much shorter, easier walk that spans only 450 metres and follows a wooden walkway to accommodate wheelchairs and prams.

A minimal fee is required for the picnic area during the tourist season and there is a control boom. The Elephant Hiking Trail requires a permit, which you can obtain from the boom (when manned) or from the Diepwalle Forestry Station.
