What a truly magical place. We went on a day where there was an abundance of mist, and my word what a truly magical experience. Everything felt mystical , like you are in another world. Do yourself a favor and definitely check this place out

Worth a visit for a quiet, easy walk in lovely surroundings. The paths were well mapped out and the waterfall beautiful. Look out for the California redwoods.

The Arboretum seems a pretty small area. Nice for a short stroll, but nothing too spectacular. The Californian Redwoods are impressive and the waterfall is okay, but that’s about it.

This well kept park is a feast for the eyes and soul. The Redwoods are spectacular. Unfortunately the Azaleas were not in bloom

Hogsback is a beautiful part of our country and the Arboretum does not disappoint. It’s an easy walk and a great opportunity to see the Knysna Turaco. Great for families with small children.

Another day in Hogsback lead us along beauteous, enthralling pathways and walkways in the Arboretum. If I was to compare, using my most creative imagination, I would compare what we have experienced today with a day in the Garden of Eden. Azaleas, hydrangeas, arum lilies,...More
