Knysna Travel Guide

If there is such a thing, Knysna is the heart of the Garden Route. This medium-sized town on the banks of the usually placid and always beautiful Knysna Lagoon is a real tourist haven.

The place to stay in Knysna - It ticks so many boxes. Outstanding, the best place to stay in Knysna. Lovely setting, great walks and other activities - swimming, tennis, bowls etc. Very pretty island with its own coffee shop. Locals very friendly. Good security.

Pezula Golf Estate Suburb of Knysna

Louther Visit to Pezula - Absolutely great course. Extremely undulating fairways with severe slopes into thick bush at places and deep pot-bunkers creates a severe test of skill and nerves. Large, fast and undulating greens makes for terrifying puts. Great test of golf. Friendly staff at entrance (caddy master) and pro shop. Thank you for a top class experience.

To commercialised - Knysna is too touristy and busy. Probably great for the young and fashionable but not the place to relax in.
