Big tree, Wilderniss


On holiday this past December, we visited the magnificent and very magical ‘Big Tree’ in Wilderniss along the Southern Coast. The tree is yellowwood, estimated to be about 850-years old. The area of Hoekwil – where this famous attraction is situated – is also a lovely area in general.

After snapping a few pictures at the tree, head into the forest for a very relaxed hike (around 2km). Just be aware of the boomslange hanging from (some) of the trees…
