Area Info:

Knysna is a very popular holiday destination.  The Knysna Heads, forests, lagoon, Featherbed Nature Reserve, beaches and friendly community are all contributing factors to this.

On The Estuary is located alongside the Knysna Lagoon as well as the Salt River which feeds into the estuary.  As the estuary is dependent on the ebb and flow of the tides there will be times when there won’t be any water directly in front of the B&B (low tide) making it a great time to explore lagoon-side life. Stroll over to popular local restaurants like Muse, Cruise Cafe, and a variety at the Knysna Waterfront - here you can also jump on board a yacht and sail through the Knysna Heads.

Knysna is located in the heart of the Garden Route in the Western Cape of Southern Africa.  The Garden Route is home to world-class golf courses, every kind of adventure activity, and picturesque surroundings.  Making it a must-visit destination for all!
