Knysna Map

Knysna Information

Nature’s Playground

On the banks of an enormous estuary, alongside South Africa’s most famous indigenous forests, lies Knysna, a town of supreme beauty. Surrounded by a natural playground, it has become the hub for adventure sport.

It's all about enjoying a host of activities in a spectacular environment of natural beauty, from hiking, canoeing, sailing, surfing, bowls and golf to adrenalin-thumping extreme sport such as kite surfing, mountain and quad biking or abseiling from the Heads.

The word "Knysna" originated from the Khoi language, but the exact meaning is open to debate. The most popular theories are "place of the dark green ferns" or "steep place" which could refer to the Heads. Very little known about the people who inhabitated the Knysna area before 1760 when the first European explorers passed through.

The area was part of Outeniqualand (as the Garden Route was then known) that lay to the east of the area that is now George. "The Knysna" referred to the river which opens into the large tidal estuary before exchanging its waters with the sea through the narrow gap between two rocky promontories known as "The Heads".
