The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. There is a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your 'padkos'. Water and ablution facilities.

Lots of different birds to see close up. Parrots take the guided tour with you. Easy to find from Knysna. Great to see the birds in a suitable habitat. Scarlet ibis were beautiful.
