Knysna Accommodation

Knysna is situated on the Western Cape’s Garden Route close to the Eastern Cape border and just before the town of Plettenberg Bay. The coastal town of Knysna is surrounded by dense forest and an expansive lagoon and the surrounding areas are ideal for hiking and cycling or horse riding while the lagoon and beach areas provide for a perfect space for almost any water sports or entertainment.

Knysna’s port historically accommodated naval as well as commercial ships for a long time, until the installation of a railway made transportation of goods cheaper and easier.
