Enshrouded in lush indigenous forest and surrounding a scenic lagoon of the same name, the Garden Route town of Knysna has plenty to offer.
Family-friendly places like Robberg Nature Reserve and Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Knysna: The Crags (Birds of Eden, Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary, & more), Oudtshoorn (Cango Wildlife Ranch, The Cango Caves, & more) and Doornkraal Padstal (in De Rust). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Knysna Elephant Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Garden Route (Tsitsikamma, Knysna, Wilderness) National Park, look for gifts at The Waterfront Knysna Quays, and explore the striking landscape at Knysna Heads.
