FNB Family Forest HikeKnysna has to be one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations all year round. Whether it is summer or winter, there are plenty of family friendly activities to choose from. With the school holidays coming up at the end of the month, many families will be heading to the Garden Route to enjoy a break and the Knysna Oyster Festival.

Plan your trip and keep the kids busy with outdoor events such as the FNB Forest Family Hike in Harkerville. Between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, you will find the beautiful and enchanting Harkerville Forest. As part of the FNB Forest Family Hike you can choose between 3 distances, enjoy all-inclusive hospitality and prizes. This will be my first year attending the event, and I hope to see you there.
