Knysna: Crown Jewel of the South African Garden Route

A land steeped in mystery, Africa has always drawn adventure-seekers to her shores. Even so, Knysna (pronounced NICE-nah), South Africa is singularly special. Whether you love history, have finally decided to go on an African safari, or just feel like a stroll along the beach, Knysna has everything you could ask for.
Often referred to as the "Jewel of the Garden Route", Knysna is, as you might expect, one of the favorite, most heavily-touristed locations in the perpetually green, lush, ecologically spectacular region of South Africa's Western Cape known as the Garden Route. As such, hotels, attractions, and pure natural beauty are in great supply.

JUST SO YOU KNOW...

South Africa's currency is the South African Rand (ZAR). You can check your local currency's exchange rate against the rand by dialing up your local bank, who'll sort everything out for you.
Additionally, South Africa uses the metric system, which means most signage you encounter will be denominated in kilometers (km) instead of miles, meters (m) instead of feet, etc.

HOW DO YOU GET TO KNYSNA?

You can drive to Knysna from Port Elizabeth or Cape Town. You can also take any of the busses which run between the two aforementioned cities & Knysna. This is probably the easiest option, since all international flights for visitors to the Garden Route land in Cape Town, anyway.
