Knysna

Located within the heart of the Garden Route, Knysna is one of the Southern Cape coast's most popular holiday destinations for both local and international visitors. Situated between lush forests and the shores of the peaceful lagoon - it offers many activities and attractions of a wide variety.

The most well known attraction being the Knysna Heads - two great sandstone cliffs guarding the mouth of the lagoon which connects the estuary with the sea. A lookout has been erected on the Eastern Head, commanding spectacular views of the lagoon, Leisure Isle and Knysna. The Western Head is a privately owned nature Reserve - Featherbed Bay.

The Knysna Lagoon is one of the few places along the coast and in the world that supports a oyster hatchery. And the Knysna oysters are reputedly among the tastiest in the world. The annual Oyster Festival in July has become one of the country’s longest running and most popular festivals.

Knysna is a bustling town which boasts many fabulous restaurants and has a picturesque and bustling waterfront and small harbour precinct where you can enjoy good food with a pleasant waterside atmosphere.

The town is a popular destination for both South African and international tourists, especially among the Europeans due to the year-round warm climate. More recently the town has also become a preferred destination among golfers, as it boasts several world class golf courses including Pezula Golf Course, Simola Golf Course and the well established Knysna Golf Course situated on the lagoon. Knysna too is a favourite haunt of artists.

The nearest ocean beach is located at Brenton-on-Sea which lies directly west of the heads and is continuous with Buffels Bay, a popular surfing spot.

Knysna has many attractions in the surrounding areas as well, one of the most spectacular being the Knysna Forest, which is still evident in many places within the town as well. It is the largest indigenous forest in South Africa comprising of tall and ancient trees of local and exotic species, including stinkwood, yellowwood, blackwood, ironwood, white alders and Cape chestnut. Not forgetting the ferns, creepers and wild flowers which add colour to this endless green collage. The forest is vast and extremely dense in places making it impenetrable. Animal life is limited to a few small antelope and a large variety of birds, such as the famous Knysna Loerie. Home to the once great herds of Knysna Elephants, it is believed that only a small heard of less than a dozen elephants remains today.
