The Khologha Forest is a pristine indigenous forest on the Amathole Mountains. It is the second biggest indigeous forest in South Africa. Tall yellowwoods and white stinkwood trees invite visitors into the cool canopy of four shady walks. The forest provides ideal habitat for bushpig, samango monkeys, bats and numerous birds.

The Kologha picnic site marks the beginning of a four magnificent and well-signposted walks through the indigenous forest. There are braai facilities, toilets, picnic tables and a small outdoor information centre at the picnic site.

The blue walk is a 3km route on which one would encounter beautiful waterfalls. At the waterfalls one can sit down and enjoy the abundant beauty of the forest. The return route is the same way.

The 7km yellow route winds along sheltered paths to higher up the hillside. The route passes two waterfalls, then takes a sharp downhill to meet up with the forestry road which leads back to the picnic spot.

The red walk is a 17km circular trail which passes through indigenous forest and grasslands and has some breathtaking views[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”6267″ img_size=”Medium”][vc_single_image image=”6264″ img_size=”medium”][vc_single_image image=”6263″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
