And a beautiful, easy hour’s drive from the nearest airport in George makes it an ideal destination for holiday makers and honeymooners.

Located in the Garden Route National Park Lakes District, Knysna and its surroundings boasts with stretches of sandy beaches, lakes, rivers and estuaries to explore, the mysterious, indigenous Knysna forest to discover and acres of Cape fynbos to play in.

We are happy to help you with information on the many amazing offerings available in and around town.
