Welbedacht Friday Night Market
We visited the night market thinking there would be lots of craft stalls,
Unfortunately this is not the case it is a variety of stalls selling food & places to sit & eat around a big bonfire
Unique Suggestions: Follow the scarecrows from N2 & go hungry
Fun Alternatives: Wait till saturday & visit the Sedgefield farmers market
Avoid Mike´s House!
Mike´s house is one of the cheapest B&Bs in Knysna. The reasons were obvious when we got in the room: Black hair on the fresh sheets, mold in the bath room and a drunk landlady. BUT: she let us go without charging anything although I already took a shower.
Fun Alternatives: right across the street is "Village" B&B. The describtion can be found at the Hotel Tips.
Kynsna steam train: choo choo ... zzzzzzz ;o)
Steam train between Knysna and George. Cool old train and carriages. Some nice scenery initially near Knysna, and at Wilderness, otherwise fairly banale ...
Unique Suggestions: Take something to read
Fun Alternatives: Watch the train leave from the station and take the bus - it leaves opposite ;o)
Knysna Elephant Park - in a field
It was disappointing that the 'park' as we saw it was a mud patch in a field. Good that all the elephants were in one spot to touch and feed. Very contrived. Very artificial. But we saw elephants I guess.
Unique Suggestions: Pay extra for bucket of food - worth it!
Fun Alternatives: Private park or Kruger!
