Full description
Experience the stunning, tropical beauty that is Garden Route National Park on a mountain scooter-bike. Used in the Alps during the summer season on the snowless ski slopes, the thick tires and solid design of your scooter-bike allows you to carve Garden Route’s trails with ease. Each scooter can fit one adult and a child passenger. After meeting your expert guides, you’ll board a scenic minibus ride to start your descent into the national park. After a safety briefing, you’ll head out onto the sweeping bends, criss-crossing down long hills within the lush forest. Keep on the lookout for local wildlife, like the majestic Knysna loerie, the shy bushbuck, and plentiful wild boar. After 2 hours going downhill on the trails, you’ll head back to the meeting point via minibus, never needing to worry about the uphill climb.

Een prachtige manier om het Knysna Forrest van dichtbij te mogen bekijken. Onze gidsen waren goed geïnformeerd en konden ons alles over het bos en de omgeving vertellen. Daarnaast zijn de “scooters” wat eigenlijk steppen met reuze banden zijn, een hele bijzondere manier van vervoer
