Discover Lagoon

Holidays on the Garden Route

Immerse yourself in the vibrant coastal charm of Knysna, an enchanting town nestled along a tranquil lagoon in the heart of the Garden Route. This picturesque destination offers lush forests, stunning views, lively waterfront dining, and diverse local treasures. Ideal for a self-drive vacation along the scenic Route 62, Knysna is a bustling coastal town with spectacular natural surroundings.
 

Knysna exudes small-town charm and warm, friendly hospitality. It is filled with craft shops, flea markets, and cosy cafes. With mountains, beaches, rivers, and lakes, Knysna provides endless entertainment and the perfect escape for families, nature lovers, golfers, and outdoor enthusiasts.

The ancient, indigenous woodlands of Knysna constitute the largest closed-canopy forest in Southern Africa and were once home to many forest-dwelling elephants. No visit to the Garden Route is complete without a trip to the Knysna Heads, a striking geological feature of brightly coloured cliffs towering above the Knysna Lagoon entrance. Take a ferry to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, a natural heritage site offering scenic views of Knysna and the Heads, where you might spot the elusive Knysna Loerie and the endangered blue duiker.

The Knysna Waterfront is a popular leisure attraction, home to the town’s nightlife, with bars and restaurants providing the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while soaking in the magnificent surroundings. Plan your visit during the Knysna Oyster Festival in July to sample locally farmed delicacies and enjoy constant fun and activities for the whole family. Knysna accommodation ranges from luxurious hotels to more affordable options.

A Knysna holiday can easily be combined with a trip to the Whale Coast and the Overberg or an Eastern Cape safari.
