Explore the largest permanent hedge maze in the Southern Hemisphere!

Nestled in the town of George in the Garden Route is one of the most remarkable attractions in South Africa.  The maze consists of seven strawberry stations, a 25m underground tunnel and a look-out point to be found within 10,000m of pathways. The hedges are grown from over 30,000 Syzygium Paniculatum plants.

How does the maze work?

The objective of the maze is not to find the exit, like in a traditional maze, but rather to find all seven stations hidden inside.  You will receive a maze card which you must clip at each station.  Each station has a unique shape, so unfortunately no short cuts!  There is a reward for those who find all seven stations.

The maze consists of seven strawberry stations, a 25m underground tunnel and a look-out point to be found within 10,000m of pathways.

Before you enter the maze:

  1. Put on sunscreen and a hat… unless you prefer looking like a tomato.
  2. Take a very important visit to the bathroom.  We won’t explain why.
  3. Buy a bottle of water from the Farm Stall to take in with you.  You’re guaranteed to get thirsty!
One to two hours, depending on how well you navigate your surroundings and how fast you walk.
Make sure to wear sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes.  If it is rainy or wet, gum boots are recommended.
Able to walk for one to two hours on uneven ground.
R35 per person
Recommended for older children, teenagers and adults.  Children under 10 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Don’t miss the maze

Redberry Farm has so much to offer families with kids, but we went for one thing and one thing only.  The hedge maze is absolutely amazing… and well worth taking the kids.  Really an experience to remember.
