Welcome to Knysna Holidays - Knysna South Africa

If you want to have some of the most exciting and experiential wildlife encounters, you can actually go to Africa countries like Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa or Asian countries like India and Sri Lanka. While there are some very interesting tours to the Sinharaja rain forest and Udawalawe of Sri Lanka to spot leopards, water buffaloes and elephants, Knysna in South Africa inspires the feeling of mystery and awe with its unique outdoor lifestyle and African flavour. The buzz of international trends mixes with the beat of Africa to create an unmistakable sense of real world wonder.

Central in South Africa's Garden Route at geographical location 34° South lies the town of Knysna and its Lagoon.

Guarding the Lagoon are the Knysna Heads, imposing sandstone cliffs, giving powerful protection against the Indian Ocean.

Surrounding the Town is 65,000 hectares of evergreen forest with the Outeniqua Mountains in the background.

Knysna is a veritable Garden Of Eden: home to Knysna Elephants; the Knysna Seahorse; African Black Oystercatchers; Dwarf chameleons; The Brenton Blue butterfly; the brilliantly coloured Knysna Loerie, Knysna Warblers, Malachite Kingfishers and other rare forest birds; magnificent birds of prey such as the fish eagle; dolphins, whales and rich marine resources such as cultivated and wild coastal oysters and pansy shells.

This exceptional natural playground offers visitors an unforgettable vacation, no wonder its South Africa’s favourite holiday town.
