The Tsitsikamma Big Tree was re-opened to visitors during September 2020. A small coffee shop is available, but it was not open at the time of our visit. A wooden walkway winds through the forest and leads to another majestic big tree. There is a hiking trail available for a longer walk.

It's a really wonderful space to go for a walk in. Even when it's raining - it might even be more ethereal! The paths are beautifully maintained and we even saw a buck through the trees!

Just a few Rand to get in and a pleasant woodland walk, but don't plan your day around it. Cafe and shop at the top. It was good for an hour or so in the afternoon.

A long awaited coffee shop at the historic Tsitsikamma Forest Big Tree. Neat, clean and welcoming coffee shop with welcoming staff. A small yet adequate menu which is welcomed after taking a walk/hike through the forest to see the iconic tree in relaxing surroundings. A must for anyone travelling this route.

We decided at the last minute to stop here on a drive from Jeffry’s bay to Knysna. We are so glad we stopped. Mother Nature is incredible and you get to see her in all her glory right here. You can do a longer hike or a quick 500m walk to this beautiful 1000 plus year old tree. People who complain about the entry fee need to respect the works of SANPARKS in our beautiful country. I want to go again and do the longer walk.
