Knysna Hotels on the Garden Route

© Chris Daly

Knysna is a town in the Western Cape in South Africa that lies on the Knysna Lagoon which is a warm water estuary famous for its beauty and endangered sea-horse colony. It is in the Garden Route which is well known for its ten nature reserves, marine reserves, Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountain ranges lagoons and lakes dotted along the coast.

Knysna is a popular destination for tourists and has a year-round warm climate. It is also popular with golfers with the Knysna Golf course situated on the lagoon and is also home to Mitchell’s Brewery. There are some elusive elephants in the Knysna forests whose images have been captured on hidden cameras but has not been seen live by anyone. This gives you an idea how thick the forest is and what a large area it encompasses.

There are many great restaurants in Knysna and surrounds with fantastic ones lying next to the water of the lagoon in the popular Waterfront as well as at The Heads where the lagoon runs into the sea. Activities include rides on The John Benn floating restaurant on the lagoon or sunset cruises on yachts, canoeing, surf-ski, ab-sailing, sky diving, kayak adventures, diving, fishing, hiking, paragliding, tree adventures with ziplines, Elephant Park and of course eating oysters.
