- For nature loves there are walks both on and around the farm that take you through plantations, wetlands and fynbos to beautiful viewpoints, with many birding opportunities en route.
- You can also amble over to the dam and drop a fishing line in the water in pursuit of bass, or take the rowboat out and enjoy a round of sun downers.
- The more active can take to the forest roads on mountain bikes and set about conquering the surrounding terrain.
- There is another option for exploring the area that does not require either riding or walking - two characterful vehicles are available to take you on picnics, sightseeing, or sun downer outings.
- Within easy driving distance of Forest Ferns is the magnificent Tsitsikamma National Park which is well worth a visit, as well as Storms River Village where you will find the exciting treetop canopy tours, and the Bloukrans Rive Bidge from which adrenalin seekers can throw themselves off in a 214 metre bungee jump.
* When driving from Port Elizabeth / Jeffreys Bay, you are obliged to exit the N2 onto a tarred detour after crossing the Kruis River.(Nompumelelo village sign)
- Continue on this road for 4 km to the stop sign. Turn right at this point and continue straight onto the gravel road.
* When driving from George / Plettenberg Bay continue for 4 km after crossing the Storms River Bridge and turn right onto the Blueliliesbush road which is now a tarred road off the N2.
- Travel for 2 km to the T-junction and turn right onto the gravel road (a left turn continues along the tarred detour).
- Once on the gravel road, turn left after 50 metres and shortly thereafter right as per The Fernery and Forest Ferns signs.
- From here it is 6km on a well signposted gravel road to The Fernery Lodge & Chalets
* Please note: Although we do our best to maintain the 6 km stretch of gravel road, its' condition is unfortunately dependent on the weather and the availability of maintenance teams. Please drive carefully.
