Welcome to the forest.

The Platbos Forest is an ancient indigenous forest located just past Stanford in the Cape Overberg.

Discover for yourself this unique, relic forest with specimen trees estimated to be well over 1000 years of age. Enjoy gentle walks through the trees. Sit on the benches situated along the forest trail and absorb the scents of tree blossoms, earth, mosses and leaves. Trees are labeled along the way to help you to get to know them. Look out for bushbuck grazing in the cool depths and enjoy the sight and sound of birds flitting between the ancient trees.
