See the Keurbooms River as you have never seen it before, sit back and relax with an ice cold beverage and let your eyes and mind be, titillated with majestic scenery as you slip along shimmering waters cascading with dense pristine forest lining your meandering journey. Let your ears be alighted to the mighty sounds of our natural orchestra of bird calls amplified by our amp theatre of gorges.
This is a reality for Keurbooms River Ferries and our guests who take this journey with us. We have been operating on this river for over twelve years and have accumulated a vast knowledge of the area, not only the plant life but also on our bird life of which we have three of the most sought after birds in south Africa.
When the opportunity arises we will position the boat for you to gaze upon these sightings with such awe that we will make a birder of you, if you are not one yet.
This information we impart with you, on your magical five kilometre journey up the Keurbooms river, to a forest lined river beach, where we stop for forty minutes, This break in the journey affords you the time to explore this intriguing forest up close, with a leisurely stroll through it and then feel what it is like to be dwarfed by four hundred year old yellowwood trees and over eighty other varieties of indigenous trees, draped in a carpet of lichen or better known as old mans beard. Should you prefer, you may relax on the white sandy beach and enjoy a morsel or two, accompanied with an ice cold beverage and then let your skin feel the rest of the pleasures that your other senses have been enjoying with a refreshing swim in silky soft amber waters.
This awe inspiring journey is only a bird call away from Plettenberg Bay.
