Knysna Attractions

The natural surroundings of Knysna have flourished and thrived during these uncertain times but our little town is not untouched by the negative effects of Covid-19 on economies.  Whilst we adapt to new ways of travelling, living and being Knysna still boasts an eclectic array of restaurants, shops, galleries, activities and "Places to Be".  There is an excellent health infrastructure and a relatively low crime rate.

Knysna remains a place of easy going living -  feeling "like a local" comes easily.

Footprints is located just a five minute drive from our normally bustling town, vibrant waterfront, architect-inspired Thesen Harbour Town, peaceful Leisure Isle and dramatic Knysna Heads.  

Footprints will cater for all your holiday requirements in this Fun Filled Forest Town.

Visitors can choose the pace of their holiday – either embarking on a whirlwind rollercoaster ride of adventure and activity or make it a more relaxed and laid back vacation whilst soaking up the spectacular and diverse surroundings which are “Naturally Knysna”.

Covid-19 has affected almost every corner of our world physically, emotionally, materially and spirtitually but Nature has survived and thrived and everything that makes us "Naturally Knysna" is still available in abundance.  Knysna nestles on the shores of the country's most romantic lagoon, between indigenous forests, the Outeniqua mountains and a rugged coastline – all of which have many a tale to tell. Beaches, lakes, mountains, cool green forests and rivers offer visitors an unforgettable holiday.

This area is home to the elusive Knysna elephants, the Knysna seahorse, Knysna dwarf chameleon, the Brenton blue butterfly, the pansy shell, the brilliantly coloured Knysna Loerie, a plethora of waterfowl and forest birds, cultivated and wild coastal oysters, dolphins, whales and so much more.

Knysna boasts 3 world class Golf courses and a host of Annual events including the world renowned Oyster Festival. You will meet artists and craftsmen, traders and restaurateurs who love nothing more than showing their visitors a good time.

Follow in the footprints of the giants of the Knsyna Forest or simply pound the pavements as you explore downtown Knysna, upmarket Thesen Harbour Town and the Knysna waterfront. Stroll on the gentle sandy beaches of Leisure Isle, and the vast sands of Buffels Bay and Brenton-on-Sea leaving “Footprints in the Sands of Time”.
