Knysna - sustainable and fun things to do!

Knysna - sustainable and fun things to do!

What's so impressive about Knysna? This pretty town on the Garden Route, South Africa, is a whole destination in itself where one can easily spend an entire holiday.

It’s hard not to be impressed by the beautiful natural harbour that is the Knysna Lagoon but the town itself has so much to offer too. The high street and shopping centres are full of small, owner-managed shops coupled with the convenience of national chains but there’s also a sophisticated range of dining options and trips that you can take around the town.

For example, we particularly like Springtide Sailing Charters: they offer 90-minute, 2-and-a-half-hour, or four-hour sailing cruises and private charters on their luxurious, hand-built sailing yacht ‘Outeniqua’. They operate out of the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays and even include overnight charters too down the coast.

If the water and boats aren’t your thing, try the Featherbed Nature Reserve – they offer a 4-hour tour that includes ferry transport across the lagoon, a driving and walking tour of the reserve on the Western Head at the Knysna River Mouth, and a superb buffet meal.

Pricing with Springtide Charters starts at R980 per person for a 2.5 hour sail (US$65, £52, €70))

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.
