Things to do in Knysna
Knysna is the perfect destination to relax and enjoy the unique sights, sounds and flavours synonymous to South Africa. Jump in to your rental car and explore the following activities.
Visit Knysna during the whale watching season (June – December) to spot one of these majestic creatures. Pack your binoculars and take advantage of the many panoramic views along the coastline, searching for the remarkable humpback or southern right whale as they make their annual migration along the shores of Southern Africa.
While Knysna is abound with good food you won’t want to miss out on the delectable oysters on offer. Indulge in platters of this wild and succulent delicacy, available at most restaurants in town.
Hike through the Knysna Forests
There’s no shortage of hikes through the Knysna Forests. Take in the tranquil sounds of nature as you walk beneath a dense forest canopy, admiring the indigenous trees and fynbos of South Africa and picnicking next to a rippling creek. With varying lengths and difficulty levels there’s a trail for everyone to enjoy.
Spend a Day on the Beach
With two Blue Flag beaches in the vicinity, a day on the beach during the hot summer season is a must. Pack your sunscreen, towels and umbrella and head to Brenton-on-sea or Buffelsbaai (Buffalo Bay) to bask in the sun and cool down in the chilly waters of the southern coast. If you’re interested in calmer waters head to Bollard Bay at high tide, where the shallow depth of the Knysna Lagoon is a perfect playground for young children.
Take in the View at the Knysna Heads
A trip to Knysna would not be complete without visiting the Knysna Heads. Visit the base of the East Head to grab a cup of coffee or snack from the nearby café and take a stroll along the rocky pathways built into the side of the cliff. When ready, drive to the top and take in the awe-inspiring views of the Indian Ocean and estuary while the waves crash far below you.
