Activity Description

This ticket is for a solo rider and passengers are aged between 3 and 9 years old.

Scootours is an unique and true forest experience. Enjoy an exhilarating downhill on the Monster Mountain Scooter, descent through indigenous forest, sweepy bends and single track. A scenic minibus ride takes you into the heart of the forest to the best hills to start your descent in the Garden Route National Park. All of this while on the lookout for the our local wild life, the majestic Knysna Loerie, the shy bushbuck and wild boar.
Scooters are non motorized making this the ideal eco friendly activity.

A highly recommended activity in Knysna, using scooters around the beautiful Knysna forest. Super team and also very knowledgable on the area... I was hoping to see the famed elusive elephants while scooting to have my Kginge in die Bos moment.
