If you’ve ever doubted that there is magic hidden around every corner of South Africa, pay a visit to Platbos Forest near Hermanus in the Western Cape. This indigenous forest, with its ancient trees, is considered a scientific oddity. The indigenous forest offers a unique experience, an exclusive forest camp allowing you to enjoy the forest area. Stay a night or two at the rustic but exquisite Platbos Forest tented camp. Sheltered and private, you’ll have exclusive use of this corner of the forest. The self-catering facility has no electricity allowing you to completely switch off. Rather, make a fire and enjoy your company.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
Winter is recommended as the forest's mosses, bulbs, ferns and epiphytes come to life. In summer, Platbos provides welcome relief from strong winds.
