Walking through the trees truly feels like something straight out a fantasy book. It just feels magical. The 1000 year old tree is a sight to behold. This is definitely worth the stop.

One giant tree indeed but just one of some of the places to stop and visit just along the N2 while here in Tsitsikamma. A little further along the road there is a service station, plenty of parking, some eateries, shops and a chance to...More
