I was in two minds about sharing it:
- Be selfish and keep it a secret from people who would appreciate it
- Risk exposing it to the wrong type of people who would trash it
The Majik Forest (pronounced Magic), is hidden in between the valleys of Bellville and Durbanville. This beautiful little forest sits at the end of Jip de Jager road. Traveling from Cape Town towards Paarl, take a left into Jip de Jager and travel up through suburbia for about 5-10 minutes.
It’s a popular location for mountain bikers, joggers, strollers, fishermen and nature lovers. Follow this website to stay up to date with news, fundraising and general info about the Majik Forest.
Unfortunately and just like anywhere else, always watch your back and don’t wander off alone. The Valley Committee have been able to secure the area with a fence, but there is no control at the entrances at this stage. They are in the process of organizing security.
If you’re in the mood to relax then pack a little snack bag and visit the Majik Forest. You won’t be disappointed.
