    Welbedacht Friday Night Market

    by jo104 Written Jan 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Knysna Elephant Park - in a field

    by markymark Written Feb 6, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moooo?

    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!

    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)

    Avoid Mike´s House!

    by lobstop Written May 5, 2004

    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.
