About this location

The Western Cape region

Combine historic with modern, vibrancy with tranquility, energy with restfulness and you have the Mecca of Southern Africa, the pearl on the lagoon opening through the awesome Heads into the Indian Ocean.

Here is Eden, this is Knysna.....

Knysna is surrounded by deep indigenous forests, thick into the distance. The town nests on the shores of the Knysna Lagoon, at the foot of the Outeniqua mountains and rugged coastline of South Africa.

It is home to the Knysna seahorse, the pansy shell, Knysna Loerie, Knysna Elephants, waterfowl and forest birds, dolphins, whales and oysters.

Knysna has a great way of life, and is one of the most popular towns in South Africa. Also one of the most attractive.

Knysna has a geographical climate similar to typically Mediterranean Maritime climate. The summers are hot and the winters mild to chilly. During the summer, the average maximum temperature reaches about 25ºC and rarely goes above 30ºC. The average maximum temperature during the winter months ranges in the area of 16ºC to 17ºC.


Many various restaurants, eateries, bars, cafés or clubs. Fascinating craft shops and beautiful art galleries, luxurious supermarkets, malls, fresh food& fish markets, movietheatre, internetcafés.

Enjoy locally brewed beer and Knysna oysters. Go diving at sea wrecks, or yachting, canoeing, waterskiing, power boating, whale-watching, surfing, swimming, fishing, snorkling, hiking, abseiling, riverrafting, sailing, diving. Shopping :)

Play all 8 golfcourses in area ............. or... just relax while sipping a sundowner by the Ocean or the Lagoon.

Friday Market, Cango Caves, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Addo Elephant, Sedgefield farmers market, Boatride to Featherbeds, gameparks, , etc etc

Too much to do, so you must stay longer or come back!
