Attraction Name: South Africa's largest Milkwood Tree - Langbos se Oupa
CATEGORY:: Natural Attractions
Type: Fauna & Flora
Description of Attraction: The Langbos-woods have been the property of the Kleinhans-family for five generations and are still in an immaculate and well-preserved state. It boasts an extraordinary variety of indigenous tree and shrub species, all of which are indigenous to South Africa.

Towering above all is the Grandpa of the "Langbos", South Africa's largest Milkwood tree, with a trunk diameter of 10, 45 m and the tree-top spanning an amazing 475 m 2 . Other fascinating facts include its height of 14 m, equivalent to a 3-storey building. Considering its pleasant surroundings where one can appreciate many endemic birds and animals such as bushbuck, duiker, grysbok, steenbok, caracal, rabbit, tortoise and dunk- roller, it is not surprising that this Grandpa has stood here for 1000 years, untouched by man.

This unique tree can be found in the woods of Langbos, approximately 8km to the North of Stilbaai in the Southern Cape, on the Western bank of the Goukou River.
