Knysna is one of South Africa's best known travel destinations… "People, beauty and mystery" is what comes to mind when describing Knysna. The town nestles between the impressive Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean, with world-renowned forests encircling it like a protective mantle. The 21 ha estuary is protected from the sea by two monolithic sandstone "Heads" - silent sentinels from the centuries of the rich history of this unique part of "paradise of earth".

It's in this uniquely beautiful haven you will find a variety of activities – from hard and soft adventure, nature and sporting trails, watersports, a wide variety of shopping, arts and crafts venues and you're certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out. It's no wonder then that Knysna is South Africa's favourite town...
