The beautiful town of Knysna is one of the Garden Route´s best known travel destinations and was named one of the Top 100 Destinations in the World in the TripAdvisor 2008 Travellers' Choice Destinations Awards.
Visitors to the town are spoilt for choice with a kaleidoscope of unforgettable experiences to choose from. Enjoy a stroll around town and visit some of the wonderful restaurants and/or coffee shops the town has to offer or indulge yourself with some retail therapy. We have an excellent African Craft Market where you can negotiate for the purchase of the gifts for your friends and family. Some great boutiques and art establishments are also on offer to tantalise you.
A paragliding mecca, Sedgefield also offers a wide range of aquatic attractions. It has a large lagoon, is wedged between the Swartvlei and Groenveli Lakes, and boasts many excellent beach destinations such as Myoli, Cola and Gericke's Point. Swimming, body surfing, surfing, canoeing, yachting, skiing and jet skiing, wind surfing and kite surfing are all on offer in this area. Not to mention fishing and spear fishing.
Situated midway between Sedgefield and Knysna, Buffalo Bay primarily attracts families seeking a safe swimming experience. It has a well-protected beach and is also quite popular with surfers who venture farther out in search of bigger waves!
Ideally situated as a midway point along the Garden Route spend a few days relaxing on the beach in the middle of your busy sightseeing holiday or use as a base from which to explore the delights and attractions of the Garden Route all within easy reach. Enjoy the bustle of nearby Knysna but return to the peace and relaxing beauty of Brenton - the hidden pearl of Knysna.
The pastoral Rheenendal country district, situated 10 km west of Knysna, is notable for being home to many prominent artists and crafters.
Take time to explore the attractions along the Rheenendal Ramble, where you will come across ceramicists, painters, woodcarvers, bowl turners, screen printers, plant nurseries, tea gardens and restaurants.
