Travel Tips for Knysna

Goudveld State Forest

by Alice-Kees

About 30 km northwest of Knsyna you find yourself in a beautiful forest area, that once was an important gold mining area. We had a picknick in the area of former minint town Millwood. All that is left of this town are the names of the streets; all the buildings have been demolished or relocated. The place is completely overgrown and it's kind of bizar to watch a photograph on an information panel of the former town. During our picknick at a designated area near Millwood we came across a group of baboons.

Sundowners at the Oystercatcher

by jo104 about Oyster Catcher

You can enjoy Oysters in various styles here fresh or cooked.
There is a tapas menu as well as salads on offer
The best thing about this bustling venue is being backdropped by busy boats coming & going its the perfect spot for sundowners drinks We only had drinks

Plattenberg Bay

by cokes

Originally christened "Bahia Formosa" (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers.

Plattenberg Bay`s sweeping, unspoilt golden beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and sea.

Plattenberg Bay`s Mediterranean Maritime climate, with moderately hot summers, and mild to chilly winters. It is one of the richest rainfall areas, most of which occurs in the winter months, brought by the humid sea-winds from the Indian ocean. Any time of the year is good for visiting the area, depending if you enjoy a peaceful retreat during the winter months or a bustling holiday destination during the summer.

In my books its a must see for everybody.

The Beautiful Garden Route

by jo104

I decided to book 3 nights in Knysna during my stay in Cape Town. We were planning to visit the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn which is situated 55km north of George, however as a day trip from Knysna it takes 2.5 hours drive so it is better to take that detour prior to entering knysna from George direction

We stayed in Bougain-villa B&B which was very central & our private deck had a lovely view of the Knysna lagoon. On the first day we discovered the town as well as the waterfront. The town has a variety of shops which sell crafts as well as the usual chain stores.

Knysna is famous for its oysters & the Knysna Oyster festival is celebrated here from 30 June to 9 July, although as I am not a lover of seafood.

During our stay we visted Noetzie beach famed for its castles. We took a drive to Natures Valley which is just a lovely peaceful setting, here you can hear the Loerie birds & Hadida birds calling from the trees. We also took a drive to Brenton on Sea which offers paragliding & canoe hire. On a previous visit to Knysna I have visited the pretty village of Belvedere which is based around the Holy Trinity Church a beautiful example of 12th Century Norman style architecture.
