Join our team and follow the Storms River Pass on this enjoyable and informative guided tour in the Plaatbos Nature Reserve. Discover the indigenous plants and experience the incredible Human Tree that guards the forest at night!
The trip will depart from the Stormsriver offices, following the elephant migratory route, passing Outeniqua yellowwood trees while hearing about the history of the area and the indigenous fauna and flora in the comfort of a specially-designed vehicle. Heading down the elephant trail to pause at the river, the guide will point out a whole variety of flora and fauna. A 450-500 year old Hardpear tree known as the Forest Guard, or the Human Tree, is said to protect the forest at night. The tour includes a light lunch of lasagne, salad, apple tart and hot drinks or juice down by the river. Discover the history of the stone building built by the Duthie family from Knysna in 1841 that was used as a hunting lodge and meeting place for hunters. The Woodcutters Journey ensures a personal experience while standing next to a giant Hardpear tree feeling like a dwarf by this unique creation.
