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 Knysna Forests. 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.
These Swiss designed scooters are used in the Alps during the summer season on the ski slopes when the snow is gone. All trips are guided by professional qualified guides. All scooters can handle one adult with a child passenger.

Customer Reviews

will love to do it again - Phenyo mabusela

The lads had a great time. At first our teenage boys where sceptical, thinking this might be a boring sight seeing experience but it turned out to be perfect for them. The guides read the situation well and took them down hills that tested their skills and made for a real adventure. A professional outfit, with well trained staff. Will definitely return for another adventure when we are down in Knysna again! - Darren Nash

A brilliant time had with all - really liked the fact that the comfort level was completely up to you and the educational aspect of it too! - Irfan Ahmed

Absolute fun out in nature! My husband thoroughly enjoyed himself. I haven't been on a bike in a very long time, was nervous and fell off but the guides were quick and hands on with first aid and advice. They were easily approachable, filled with humour and also eager to share information about Knysna. - Evashini Perumal

Absolutely amazing tour. The team were very friendly and also gave us history about the area as we where driving to the forest and then during the scooter ride. We really had an awesome time. Well done to the team!! - Heinrich
