Knysna

KnysnaKnysna nestles on the shores of an estuary between indigenous forests, the Outeniqua Mountains and rugged coastline and is part of the Garden Route. Knysna’s natural heritage is woven around the indigenous forest and its fauna and flora. The timber industry is highlighted to this day by manufacturers of wooden furniture and art. Golden beaches, tranquil lakes, mountains and rivers offer an unforgettable experience for water sports, hikers, horse riders and cyclists.

Knysna is famous for its homegrown oysters, washed down with locally brewed beer. From the Knysna Quays on the Waterfront development you can take a boat trip over the lagoon to the Heads and Featherbed Nature Reserve. Known as a favourite family holiday and festival destination and playground of the rich, it is also home to many thousands of indigenous cultures who work proudly to try to improve their lives and become part of the beneficiaries of the properity in the town. It is here where Dreamcatcher, with the involvement of a number of strong vibrant, resilient women, have spearheaded projects and initiatives to ensure opportunities for visitors from abroad to interface with the soul of the town: its people.
