The Western Cape region

Knysna is a particularly beautiful area of the South African coast, 500km from Cape Town and around 270km from Port Elizabeth along the famous Garden Route – George Domestic Airport is the closest to our home being a 50 minute, scenic drive away. Knysna is the pearl of the Garden Route and is situated between George and Plettenberg Bay. Thanks to a Mediterranean climate, Knysna is a mantle of indigenous forests and greenery, nestled between the Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean and extending towards the Tsitsikamma National Park. The Knysna lagoon is the largest estuary in the Southern Hemisphere and possesses the highest plant and animal diversity of all South African estuaries and is home to the endangered Knysna Seahorse. The lagoon is the heart of Knysna and is protected by the amazing monolithic sandstone “Heads” which are best explored either by boat or by hiking the various paths around Featherbed Nature Reserve. Knysna is the culinary capital for oysters and a variety of other delectable seafood and is a well known cultural hotspot for arts and crafts. Adventure activities like tree canopy gliding, kloofing and abseiling are available and you will find some excellent Golf courses nearby. Hiking and Biking trails are in abundance and of course you have the maginifent Indian Ocean and the Lagoon on your doorstep for aquatic activities. There is no better place to be when exploring this scenic route of the famous South African Garden Route, where excellent restaurants, wine farms, ostrich encounters, The Cango Caves and Safari Adventures are all within reach.


Brenton on Sea has a beautiful butterfly Reserve, so do take the time to visit this natural park and look for our famous Brenton Blue Butterfly, the Knynsa Lourie (now renamed the Knysna Turaco) and Bushbuck are often seen in the area and have been spotted in the brush opposite our house. On occasion we have had visits from a tortoise or two and owls can be spotted on the road in and out of Brenton. Of course dolphins are regularly sighted from Brenton Beach and if you visit during mating season, you may be fortunate enough to view the Southern Right Whales from the deck.

There is a 6km long white sandy beach, within walking distance from our house, although parking is available at the beach. The Rocky outcrops are pretty spectacular! The beach stretches from Brenton on Sea to Buffles Bay, look out for our famous Oyster Catchers that breed in the area along the way… Magnificent swimming, surfing, walking and fishing beach boasting beautiful sunsets and a spectacular paragliding spot!

Closer to the house is the lovely “fisherman's walk” which ofters shady lookout bomas on a wooden pathway, making an easy walk along the cliff edge with beautiful views out towards the magnificent Indian Ocean.
