Knysna Tours

Knysna
The town of Knysna sits on South Africa's southern shore, part of the famous Garden Route. It sits on a warm-water estuary called Knysna Lagoon, and the surrounding area is home to some dense forests. It's a beautiful area, full of wildlife, and popular with tourists visiting South Africa's Garden Route as well as those who just want a relaxing holiday destination on the water.

Visitors can explore the forests around Knysna, and can also get a taste of local culture with a tour of a Xhosa township on the outskirts of the city. There are three golf courses in the area, and there's an annual oyster festival held in June or July.
Knysna is just over 44 miles east of George (which has an airport), and 15 miles west of Plettenberg Bay.
