The 7th annual FNB Family Forest Hike is an opportunity for Knysna Oyster Festival-goers of all ages to enjoy the deep indigenous Harkerville Forest in a fun, friendly and educational way.

Taking place on Monday 2 July, Wednesday 4 July and Friday 6 July 2018, families can choose from one of 3 distances to walk, run, hike or jog.

Who knows, you may just spot a Knysna Loerie, or better, an elephant.
