Knysna: A Paradise Found

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of travelling around the Cape, you would know of the wonders that is Knysna, a town tucked away between George and Segdefield. Knysna is a haven for European tourists who love its quaint town atmosphere that is steeped in English culture.

Knysna_heads Knysna is home to some of the best festivals in SA, two of which are the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras (celebrated recently) and the famous and popular Knysna Oyster Festival, which takes place from 4-13 July 2008.

It is truly the place for all seasons and even more so during May and June. Escape to Knysna and loosen up in the warm, sunny, windless days and cosy evenings in front of the fireplace – the ideal atmosphere to slow down and unwind. You will be spoilt for choice on the many activities to get up to in Knysna.

Here are a few key areas that you must see if you decide to visit Knysna:
– The Knysna Quays
– The Heads
– Leisure Isle
– The castles at Noetzie
– Knysna Forest

  1. Actually, Sedgefield is situated between George and Knysna. Knysna is situated between Sedgefield and Plettenberg Bay.

  2. Yes I agree Knysna is beautifull but Plettenberg Bay has a beauty beyond describing with an amazing energy Have you ever been to see it for yourself?

  3. My bad Heather, I love that entire area which probably led to the confusion 😉
    @Santa: I haven’t had the chance to make my way to Plett in a while but I have to admit it’s just as cool as any other place on the Garden Route 😉
