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.
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.
