A hidden gem - We loved Thesen Island. There are so many things to see and experience. My kids loved it, the adults loved it. We all felt very safe and secure. We went for lovely walks and found cafes and restaurants suitable for everybody. There's a great mix of serenity with a bit of action. We will definitely be back.
Stunning - Beautiful, beautiful area!

Leisure Isle haven - Leisure isle is a perfect location for all age groups. It offers many different activities in a very safe environment. The inhabitants are mostly very friendly
Allen Johnstone South Africa
Paradise in the Lagoon - Beautiful Leisure Isle is situated in the Knysna lagoon. The security on the island is excellent with our own guards. It is a bird-watchers paradise with land birds, water birds and migrants. Walks on the island are on the level and "Steenbok Park" a wonderful botanical reserve with indigenous flora.
It is also so convenient for exploring the Garden Route with all its attractions. Two golf courses can be seen from the island and several game viewing parks are within easy reach, covering the most impressive "Birds of Eden" to elephant parks, wolf sanctuary and a big cats reserve.
In addition there are wonderful forest and beach walks in the vicinity.
Ian Huskisson South Africa
Fish Eagle Bay - Relaxation at its best! The beaches are safe with long white sandy areas to walk on, jog along or lay about. The river near our home is beautiful and a sundowner trip on a wee boat is the best. You can even go up the river and picnic on one of the sandy banks. If you need exercise then a canoe is the way to go. As for the restaurants, yummy places to eat at like Emily Moon, Braman and Enrico. Birds of Paradise is amazing. The birds fly freely under a huge net canopy. You will be truly relaxed when you return to the rat race!
Debbie Calmeyer South Africa
On top of the world - Central Plett offers visitors what surely must be some of the most spectacular views in the world! Steep roads lead into town where its' elevated position offers breathtaking views over the unique and ever-changing Keurbooms Lagoon where it spills into our beautiful Bay, encompassed by white beaches and pounding waves. Whales and dolphins are regularly signed as the ocean stretches as far as the eye can see - even as far as the distant blue peaks of the Klein Karoo mountains.
The town of Plett has a Mediterranean-style vibe with boutiques and restaurants spilling onto the paved main street. Visitors can stroll into town from the upmarket accommodation available centrally and browse, shop and dine while enjoying the lovely village atmosphere and temperate climate Plett has to offer year round.
Central Plett is an unforgettable holiday destination with all amenities are on your doorstep and where visitors can relax and recharge while being surrounded by nature and breathtaking vistas.

Carole Shonfeld South Africa
Marina magnifique - Thesen Island offers something for everyone, from seclusion to the hussle and bustle of shopping and restaurants. Kids have a ball exploring the area which is safe, clean and full of secret hideaways from the wild bird hide to the maze of climbing roses. The water quality and facilities have qualified Thesen Island as a pilot Blue Flag marina. These protected waterways enable all sorts of water sports, in particular canoeing and SUP, boating, fishing and house hunting! The birdlife is staggering, from kingfishers to owls, the island has something for everyone.
Cameron Searle South Africa
Boggomsbaai: Heaven on Earth - A beautiful and tranquil little Holiday Village with pristine beaches, a safe and peaceful environment, and with only the sound of resounding waves!
Ronell du Toit South Africa
For me, this is Rheenendal - Not one day ever the same, mist rising from the Homtini River, make for spectacular viewing. Blue skies and clouds passing by, Indigenous forest and natures master entertainers, Vervet Monkeys. Spectacular Knysna Loeries jumping from tree to tree and we, standing in awe to see the crimson-red under their wings when they are flying pass. Standing on the Homtini Bridge and to listen to the running sound of the water over boulders. Putting my feet in the brown water and enjoying the clean air that I breath. That is Rheenendal. PLAASKOS at Totties Farm Kitchen and General Store. Koeksisters and fresh boerewors at Portland Mini Market. Cheese and milk at Leeuwenbosch. Nuts and nougat at Red Barn. Freshly baked bread at Barnies. And don't forget Fynbos Honey! For me, this is Rheenendal.
Tristan Jose South Africa
The place to be! - There is something about Wilderness that grabs one. This could be the scenery consisting of the ocean views, beaches, lagoon, lakes and wetlands, the forested hills and valleys. The intimate cosy village, the people, the restaurants and the general relaxed vibe. Whether one stays on the beach, in the village or in a cosy guest house amongst the lakes district, you are sure to enjoy the stay. Enjoy the beaches, walk the trails, canoe the waterways, visit the markets, cycle the backroads, try some adventure and enjoy the birdlife.
Wilderness is central to all attractions of the Garden Route.
Mike & Harja Raubenheimer South Africa
Knysna Seahorse Paradise - I am most fortunate to live on Thesen Islands. This beautiful island, situated in the middle of the Knysna Lagoon, surrounded by water, is a safe haven for it's inhabitants including the unique Knysna Seahorse. Consisting of numerous smaller islands, all inter linked via canals and bridges, this lovely island offers safe and secure living conditions unsurpassed anywhere in South Africa. With it's own private sandy beaches, canals, parks, private jetties, restaurants, tennis and squash courts, doggy play area, bird sanctuary, historical sawmill, boating, canoeing, swimming, fishing and mini golf, it is indeed paradise. Where else can one walk at night or early morning without having to look over one's shoulder? Only on our beautiful island.

Garden Route's Adventure Capital - Anyone looking for adventure should come to Mossel Bay. We can keep you busy for a few days. See some of the origins of modern man with a visit to the Pinnacle Point Caves. Also of recent historical interest are the relics of the first Europeans to land in South Africa. The museum has interesting info about the first trade with local inhabitants, the first church service, and the first letter posted in South Africa and more. Mossel Bay has one of the mildest climates in Africa.

Paradise Found - A stay in Wilderness for a couple of nights is a must for the soul. The calm rivers, pristine beaches and walking through the forests recall your youth. Paraglide,
Abseil or canoe through the Wilderness National Park on the placid Touw River or take a stroll along the boardwalk to the waterfall. Get a grand view of Wilderness from the Map of Africa viewing point. Laze on the beach with a picnic basket and watch the sun go down. Wilderness is a paradise not to be missed.

Sue Ze de Jager South Africa
Best kept Garden Route secret - With magnificent sea, lake and Outeniqua Mountain views, Hoekwil is as close to paradise as you will get. This village is full of friendly local people, has fantastic accommodation and offers wonderful things to explore while here. It consists of a church, a post office, two shops, a school and a few accommodation establishments.

Keurboomstrand - This idyllic spot on the Garden Route is 5 km from the centre of Plettenberg Bay. Keurboomstrand offers you deserted white sandy beaches with regular dolphin and whale sightings and a feast of birdlife. Keurboomstrand gives you that “getting away from it all” feeling while only being 10 minutes away from all the activities of Plett. You can access mountain biking in Harkerville, a range of beach walks, a bike track to Plett and outings to Monkey Land, the Snake Park, Storms River Mouth and The Crags to name but a few. This is a terrific spot; whether you are a toddler, a teen or teetering towards retirement.
Linda Halliday South Africa
Fun filled forest dorpie - Many people have heard of Storms River Mouth or the Storms River Bridge but many still bypass this friendly little village with a plethora of adventure activities, peaceful atmosphere and numerous forest hikes, trails and meanders.
An open and friendly village vibe with a cross cultural community, the village has accommodation to suit all tastes, some restaurants worthy of more grandiose settings, the world famous Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour, starting point of the Blackwater Tubing, host to the Storms River Traverse MTB stage race and much more. For the less active adventurer there are Sedgeway Tours, gentle walks and forest trips on open vehicles and spa treatments to help restore harmony of body and mind. Storms River Village is the perfect fusion of nature and adventure.

Beautiful! - A very quiet little town, with a beautiful beach with sand dunes, rocks, amazing trees and flowers (even in winter!), and of course the whales that we could glimpse from the beach.
