Knysna emerged in the early 1800s around the beautiful estuary at the heart of the mystical rainforest. Today, Knysna has grown into a buzzing mini metropolis – a synthesis of nature and sophisticated living.

Knysna surrounds the shimmering azure blue estuary, the very heartbeat of the town, with the magnificent Indian Ocean through the entrance at the famous Heads, to the South, and the majestic Outeniqua mountains forming a dramatic backdrop, to the North.

From its unrivalled scenic beauty to its exhilarating adventure activities, two world class golf courses, shopping experiences, its leisurely relaxing pleasures to its fine and varied cuisine - there is something for everyone.

Knysna retains its sense of romance, majesty and mystery. It truly is the “Jewel of the Cape Garden Route”.
