This park is super for all ages ,young and elderly alike. The walks are fabulous and not too hard on your body. You can canoe or sit by the river and relax.

The Wilderness National Park is family fun. Lots to do with kids. Beautiful bush-walks and lots of Knysna Loeries to see. Great fun in the water of the Touw river. Well serviced. Neat and tidy.

A little piece of paradise, complete with a glimpse of Loerie, given to the Parks board to look after. It saddens me that people can so carelessly leave their litter at the foot of such a magnificent waterfall. The board walk to the falls is...More

Hi, kannst du mir sagen, was ihr für die Kanus bezahlt habt, und wieviel Zeit man bis zu den Wasserrfällen benötigt. Habe Kinder im Alter von 6 und 9 Jahren dabei. Will deshalb ein bisschen planen. Danke Thorsten
