About Knysna

Often described as ‘South Africa’s favourite town’, Knysna is a microcosm of the country. Its vast indigenous forests, lakes, lagoons, mountains, streams, pastures and spectacular coastline offer a bewildering choice of activities and sightseeing opportunities. The town centre & waterfront are hives of activity, whist retaining a friendly, relaxed ambience.

Conveniently situated in a quiet suburb, less than 5 minutes from town and the Knysna Heads, Candlewood is the ideal base from which to explore the immediate area – and the entire Garden Route.

Knysna offers a wide choice of fine restaurants and quirky cafés, craft & food markets, shopping malls, boutiques, boat cruises, whale & dolphin watching excursions, plus a host of outdoor sports & activities. (Your hosts can provide full details & make bookings.).

Further afield, Plettenberg Bay is a pleasant 20-minute drive away, the small but vibrant city of George (with its airport) 50 minutes & the Tsitsikamma National Park just over an hour away.
