Activities around Knysna and the Garden Route
Knysna is ideally situated to explore the Garden Route. Everything is just a day trip away. Including the 2010 FIFA World Cup Stadium in Nelson Mandela Bay - Port Elizabeth.
Outdoor activities include swimming, bird watching, boating, canoeing, fishing and plenty more while rainy days will see you in restaurants and shops, viewing wildlife and catching the amazing scenery from the many drives.
Also don't miss out on regular events in and around Knysna. Every year the 'Oyster Festival' comes to Town. There are many things to do - Oyster tasting, cycling, running. Even the South African Navy make a perilous journey through the Heads. This year minesweepers came through and docked at Thesen Island for several days. The famous Cape Epic cycle race takes place each year, setting off from Knysna. The arduous event takes three days to complete!
