Knysna Tailormade Holidays

Knysna Heads is a striking geological features on the southern African coastline. The two great sandstone cliffs are at the mouth of the lagoon, which connects the estuary with the sea. A lookout has been erected on the Eastern Head, which has spectacular views of the area. The Western Head is a privately owned nature Reserve - Featherbed Bay. The lagoon is one of the few places along the coast that supports a oyster hatchery.

Knysna's history began in1804, with the arrival of George Rex, rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King George lll. He bought the Melkhoutkraal on the shores of the lagoon and moved his entire family and considerable entourage down to Knysna to settle.

Knysna Forest is the largest indigenous forest in South Africa comprising of tall and ancient trees of local and exotic species, including stinkwood, yellowwood, blackwood, ironwood, white alders and Cape chestnut. Not forgetting the ferns, creepers and wild flowers which add colour to this endless green collage. The forest is vast and extremely dense in places making it impenetrable. Animal life is limited to a few small antelope and a variety of birds, such as the famous Knysna Loerie. The area was once home to herds of Knysna Elephants, but today there possibly only 5 left - exact numbers are hard to determine due to the elusive nature of the elephants.
