Labyrinth with an indigenous view…

On the same trip we came across this labyrinth. It overlooks the indigenous forests of Hogsback and you encounter some interesting plants en route to the centre. Once there, I found what I presume is some sort of aloe (see pic).. Who knows what this plant is?

The labyrinth is next to accommodation offered by the Edge (http://www.theedge-hogsback.co.za/). A great little place with a cool restaurant and private cottages set into the mountain-side, surrounded by bush. We even saw a baboon in the half hour we were there.

    Thats a great labyrinth – I wonder…there can’t be that many decent labyrinths in SA?

    there’s one at brookdale spa in nottingham road, but it’s nowhere near as big as this one. the website for ‘the edge’ lodge said it’s one of the biggest in the world!

    That’s pretty cool indeed, definitely a lot easier to maintain. The views from there look amazing too.
