    Knysna is great for outdoor active adrenaline junkies or just get lost in the bush. Excellent trails and never short of a view or great place to eat. People are friendly and towns are small, Very clean and sometimes feels like you not in SA. Definitely a must see place, We visited Victoria Bay, The Heads viewpoint, SPieskop reserve seeing the groot boom and drove all the way into the mountains. Tsitsikamma was far the best .

    The highlight of Knysna is that it encompass a variety of activities and adventures. Majority of the resturants we visited provided very good service and amazing seafood 🦐 Myself and my partner particularly enjoyed the boat ride on a 40 ft Catameran from Ocean Sailing Charters ⛵️, which came after a wild Ziplining experience. The Knysna Heads should definitely be visited for the scenic mountain and ocean views 🏞. A wonderful walk on the wild side feeding elephants, was another major highlight 🐘 ❤️ The icing on the cake was a young detour in Plettenberg Bay for a romantic date on the beach 💙🌊🥂 I would definitely recommend this dose of peace, serenity and absolute bliss 🌍

    A very chilled place - just very serene place to go.

    A very chilled place - just very serene place to go. It can be a little expensive for the type of food offered in several restaurants - price doesn't really match portion of menu. The people are friendly, there's a few activities to do if you're adventurous. It's a great place to stop-over for a couple of nights and then continue with your journey. The Waterfront is very lovely. I suggest you there. The Mall is also great for shopping - don't get lost though because there's about 4 mall/square areas.

    One town that’s full of adventure around every corner from the heads to the old drift to Brenton on sea to buffalo bay to jubilee creek to the forest to lands end. Just too many wonderful experiences to be had in a vibrant and friendly town! Honestly, the best place.

    If you are planning a trip along the garden route then Knysna is a must visit spot. The views across the lagoon and the Knysna Heads are amazing and so many options for accommodation from camping by the lagoon to 5* hotels. It is also a good base to explore the Eastern end on the garden route right up to Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth). There is also a number of fantastic mountain passes to drive up to the Karoo, but make sure you have a good vehicle and a good head for heights. Knysna is fantastic and well worth a visit.

    The sea facing Coral Suite was large with great views of the ocean & The Knysna Heads. Very comfortable big bed. Dinner next to the fireplace was really good. Breakfast was good with a small but good selection of buffet items & a great variety of cooked items to order- the views from the restaurant are amazing. Having bicycles out the front of the hotel that guests can use is a really great touch - the ride around the island is flat & easy to do I would definitely recommend doing it.

    The best place to stay in Knysna? Beautifully located rustic cabins next to a small private beach where you can swim safely, or play with the kayaks and paddle boards provided. Lots of greenery gives shade and a pleasant jungle-like feel. Self catering with excellently equipped kitchen (first time of finding a fondue set in a rental cabin...) Good atmosphere; all other guests we talked to loved the place, too. We recommend this place to couples, families, everyone!

    We loved our stay at this beautiful guesthouse. The owner couple were lovely and the rooms and facilities beautiful with an amazing view over the lagoon! The breakfast was delicious and the service excellent! We would love to come back and can highly recommend this guesthouse! The location was also great with only a few minutes walking distance to the Waterfront area. Helene & Dan from Sweden

    Interesting and quirky hotel in Knysna. The room was spacious and also had features from the original use of the building and the communal spaces were great. Breakfast was very tasty (many members of the public also come in to eat there which is a good sign!) and the portions were huge. Perfectly located for restaurants and boat trips by the lagoon.

    Great hotel very nearby the Knysna waterfront, only a short walk down the road. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast had great variety and was tasty. The pool and bar area was also great to have as an option if you didn’t want to leave the hotel. Highly recommend.
