Knysna, pearl of the South African Garden Route, is one of South Africa’s best known travel destinations, and takes pride of place in the “Top 100 Destinations in the World Trip Advisor 2008 Travelers’ Choice Destinations Awards’. 

The area comprises Knysna, Sedgefield, Brenton, Noetzie, Rheenendal, Belvidere and Buffalo Bay.

Indigenous forests, fynbos, lakes, rivers, mountains and beautiful coastlines combined with a moderate climate, make the Knysna area a natural Eden.  A natural paradise of lush indigenous forests, tranquil lakes and golden beaches adorns South Africa’s unspoilt southern coast. Nestling on the banks of a shimmering lagoon in the heart of this ‘Garden Route’ is the picturesque town of Knysna. Beaches, lakes, mountains and rivers provide endless opportunity for leisure and outdoor adventure. Within the town, craft shops, flea-markets and cosy cafe’s beckon with small-town charm and hospitality.
