THE OYSTER CATCHER
The Oystercatcher is where our world is your oyster.
The perfect place to unwind with a glass of champagne and watch the sunset.
A visit to Knysna is not complete unless you have been to the Oystercatcher.
Outeniqua Choo Tjoe
Take the time for a trip on the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe train which runs between Knysna and George. You can do the journey as a return trip or as a one way journey returning by minibus At the George end of the line is the Outeniqua Railway Museum, which is very pleasant for a wander around. Most of the year the train is pulled by a steam engine, although if there is a big risk of fires caused by burning embers then a diesel is used. Be careful of leaning out of the windows, the engine can throw out a lot of hot embers and you may end up very dirty and with sore eyes.
