Enshrouded in lush indigenous forest and surrounding a scenic lagoon of the same name, the Garden Route town of Knysna has plenty to offer.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Brenton on Sea and Bollard Bay. Do your shopping at Cali Craft & Gems and Harkerville Saturday Village Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Knysna: The Cango Caves (in Oudtshoorn), George (St Mark's Cathedral, George, Outeniqua Transport Museum, & more) and Robberg Nature Reserve (in Plettenberg Bay). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Buffalo Bay, hunt for treasures at Mosaic Outdoor Market, stroll through Knysna Elephant Park, and enjoy the sea views from Cape St Blaize Lighthouse.
