Head to the world's oyster hotspot for the best 10 days of your winter!
After all, ten days dedicated to slurping indulgence, the swigging of ice-cold Heineken and sexy sensations pay tribute to a simple aphrodisiac shellfish called oyster. Every year the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival offers a jam-packed programme of sports, adventure racing, great parties and plenty to occupy the whole family.
Not into slipping oysters down your gullet? Whether you're a
sports jock, pleasure seeker, adventurous or just plain hungry, Knysna
is the place to be during winter. The long school holidays are a great opportunity to participate in the ten-day event this year, or just relax in the beautiful lagoon-side town.
So pack your adventure racing gear, load your bikes, sharpen your appetite and head for Knysna to enjoy the country’s longest running sport and lifestyle festival. You’ll be able to indulge in oysters and bubbly while the kids are taken care of or get active with the whole family – there are over 100 events to choose from. So plan to go jolling with the Knysnarians this July.
