About Knysna

Click here for comprehensive information about Knysna

Knysna lies on the N2, approximately an hour's drive from George to the west and 3 hours from Port Elizabeth to the east. Knysna is the ideal base from which to explore the Garden Route and it's many attractions, with most being within an hours’ drive.

Westhill lies to the north of the estuary and the property is situated less than 10 minute walk from the town centre and 15 minutes from the Waterfront.

Knysna is a small coastal town built around a large warm-water estuary which is fed by the Knysna River flowing from the Outeniqua mountains in the north. The estuary (or Knysna Lagoon) is now an international Hope Spot and opens to the Indian Ocean through two large headlands known as The Heads.

Whether you are a water babe or a land lubber; an adrenalin junkie, or sports fanatic; interested in history, culture or arts; want to explore the natural beauty around the estuary, in the forests, or on the beaches; or even just want to relax and chill; Knysna has it all.

With various festivals, shows, and sporting events taking place all year round, and a temperate climate to suit, Knysna is the perfect destination. You might even get to see one of the few elusive Knysna Elephants still in existence roaming the forests.
