It is not difficult to see why Knysna is South Africa’s fastest growing tourist destination along the Garden Route. With one of the highest percentages of rainfall in South Africa and a surrounding of 80 000 ha of thick indigenous forest, Knysna hosts a wide variety of natural beauty, birdlife and sea life, including the rare Knysna sea horse. The forest is even home to mysterious wild elephants whose rare sightings keep the locals intrigued. Knysna offers numerous sights and activities, and is also close to the beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park and wildlife sanctuaries.
On our tours which include Knysna we visit the Elephant Sanctuary where you can experience magical moments and close encounters with young elephants. We also include a trip to Birds of Eden, the largest single free-flight aviary in the world, situated in indigenous forest with waterfalls and elevated walkways. Afterwards you can then relax on a Boat Cruise on Knysna's lagoon where the famous Knysna heads rock formations guard the entrance to the sea. From the boat discover the harmony of nature as we glide alongside the island paradise, the Featherbed Nature Reserve.
There will be a free morning where you can book a Tsitsikamma activity with us, visit a sanctuary or take advantage of this leisure time to explore the town of Knysna.
