Big tree, Wilderniss

20140102_115624

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…
