Knysna Forest Scootour Adventure: Thrilling Downhill Ride & Wildlife Safari

Get ready for a wild downhill escapade in Knysna with their Forest Scootour Adventure! They’ll be riding down massive slopes on scooter-bikes, carving through winding trails, and keeping an eye out for local wildlife. And hey, they can cancel for free up to 24 hours in advance, no strings attached! Pay later, keep plans flexible, and dive into this 1.5-hour thrill with a live guide. It’s a small group affair, limited to 9 participants, making it an intimate forest frenzy since 2019.



Starting at 23 Sawtooth Ln, they’ll hop onto a bus or coach for a scenic 15-minute ride to Knysna. From there, the guided tour begins, lasting 1.5 hours before they zip back to 23 Sawtooth Ln. Highlights include breezing through tropical forests on nimble scooter-bikes, experiencing the Garden Route National Park’s complex ecosystem, and capturing unforgettable vistas.


Picture this: adventurers on mountain scooter-bikes, typically used in the Alps during snowless ski seasons, effortlessly navigating Garden Route’s trails. Each scooter accommodates an adult and child passenger, promising an exhilarating ride. After meeting expert guides, they’ll embark on a picturesque minibus descent into the national park. Post a safety briefing, it’s downhill time, criss-crossing long hills in the lush forest while wildlife sightings—Knysna loeries, bushbucks, and wild boars—keep the adrenaline pumping. After 2 hours of thrilling downhill action, they’ll return worry-free uphill via minibus.



And the perks? SanParks Conservation Fee, pickup and drop-off at Thesen Island Harbour Town, expert guides, helmets, gloves, water post-activity, and zero worries about gratuities, hotel pickups, or food and drinks. However, it’s not suitable for the tiny tots, expectant mothers, individuals with back issues, mobility impairments, or wheelchair users.



Remember to select the right number of participants and date when booking. When it’s time, Long Street leads them to Thesen Island Harbour Town, where the adventure begins at Heads Up Coffee and Co. Their journey to Knysna Forest’s starting point starts here, so arrive 15 minutes early, dressed comfortably, warmly, and with closed-toed shoes. No luggage or large bags allowed, but hats and sunscreen? Definitely encouraged! This tour’s a blast for those ready to roll through the forest on two wheels—no snow required!
