Explore the secret garden

Imagine a secret place off the beaten track, where endless trails snake their way through ancient forests. Wooded giants stand guard over the singletracks as they flow through streams, shady fern glades and forest tunnels. The secret Knysna singletracks that are always spoken of but never seen. Only a privileged few have had the opportunity to experience this world, where the forest elephants still roam today and folk lore talks of magical moments only mother nature can provide. Escape into the undiscovered and become part of the journey through the Outeniqua forests.

The events will take place on the unique Barrington farm, nestled at the very foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and the Karatara River Gorge, midway between George and Knysna. In the heart of the Garden Route. Bring the whole family to experience the magic. Trails, kiddies entertainment, jumping castles, pony rides, farm animals and much more. Sunday the 22nd December 2013 and Sunday 29 December 2013.
