Spitskop Viewpoint is the 7th stop on the ‘Rooted in Time’ Knysna Forest Self-Drive Tour. Arguably, it’s the best. Considering the magnificent view it offers, best done on a sunny day.

Rooted in Time self-drive tour Knysna - Spitskop 1c

At 918 metres (3,011 ft.), Spitskop is the highest accessible peak in the district.

An amazing vista in an awesome setting, this view point is a wonderful place to gain some perspective on things.

On a sunny day, the three marvels of the Garden Route (Mossel Bay, The Knysna Heads and the Robberg Peninsula in Plett) can be seen from the view point.

It’s an experience you will never forget.

It’s  a steep climb on a gravel road so driving can be technical. A normal car could make it but a 4×4 would make the job a lot easier. For the fit, it’s about 2km to the top.
