Outeniqua Quest 2015 around the corner

Groeneweide. It’s just what the name says. It’s a lush and green jungle! It’s soothing to the eye and the undergrowth is quite thick compared to other parts in the Garden Route forests. The long loop also has some fynbos and grassland sections.

The trails are mostly forest single tracks and paths used by woodcutters. Vegetation on the trail includes Palmiet, Outeniqua Yellowwood – of which there are some majestic specimens, Onderbos, Ironwood, Bastard Saffronwood, Stinkwood, fungi in different coloures on felled wood and seven-week ferns.

Bird-life is plentiful. Narina Trogan, Olive Thrush, Chorister, Cape and Starred Robins and the Knysna Loerie. But because of the low light under the canopy they are seldom seen. However, you can try to identify them by their calls. Wildlife includes Blue Duiker, bushbuck, vervet monkeys, baboons and bushpigs, as well as the predators leopard and caracal who are illusive and shy and rarely encountered.

When you stop to enjoy thetranquillity of the forest, the soothing sounds of the many streams, the majestic mountains, the magnificent views and your soul is revitalized..
