Drupkelders Rock Pools
Knysna Rock Pools
We hope you enjoyed these photos of the Knysna Drupkelders rock pools in the Drupkelders virtual photo tour. These photos of Drupkelders are meant to be representative as trees fall, landscapes change and different weather casts different light. One cannot capture it in one photo.
Drupkelders – loosely translated into Dripping Cellars, are rock pools in the Knysna forest. Combine a 3.5km indigenous forest walk with a visit to magnificent rock pools in the Homtini River in the Knysna Forest. These massive rock pools offer deep, cola-coloured waters to cool off in and even a waterfall to clamber up next to (to another series of pools). Take a rucksack with picnic and swimming things and wear good walking shoes as there is a steep section near the river.
Due to the exclusivity of this gem, only 12 persons a day are allowed in and a Sanparks permit is required (Wildcards are not accepted for this walk). It is not expensive and you are required to keep the permits on you should officials ask you for it by the rock pools. This trail starts at the Forest Edge Nature-lovers Retreat gate entrance.
*** You will miss out if you do not make the effort to visit this incredibly beautiful, natural spot! The Forest Edge Drupkelders Knysna rock pools are worth the effort. Drupkelders at Forest Edge offers our guests prime starting position as you walk there from your cottage veranda.
