Knysna's most famous attraction is the lagoon where you can sample tasty oysters or take a ferry to the Featherbed Private Nature Reserve which houses the exotic Knysna Loerie.
The below gives more info on your location.
Facing the warm Indian Ocean through the Knysna Heads, the Protea Hotel Knysna Quays offers a tranquil stay in spacious rooms overlooking the magical Knysna lagoon and the historical train station.
Undoubtedly, Knysna's most famous attraction is the lagoon where you can take a ferry to the Featherbed Nature Reserve. Two giant sandstone cliffs (known as The Heads) guard lagoon’s mouth that links the estuary to the sea. There is a lookout point in the nature reserve that offers panoramic views of the heads and the crashing waves below. The Cape mountain tortoise, blue crane, rare black African oyster catcher and bushbuck are also found on the reserve.
A mosaic of ecosystems, the Garden Route National Park encompasses the world renowned Tsitsikamma and Wilderness sections, the Knysna Lake section, a variety of mountain catchment, Southern Cape indigenous forest and associated Fynbos areas. These areas resemble a montage of landscapes and seascapes, from ocean to mountain areas, and are renowned for its diverse natural and cultural heritage resources.
The first of its kind in South Africa, the Knysna Elephant Park provides a home for orphaned elephants and offers visitors a taste of nature in an area where vast herds once roamed. Join the elephants in their controlled free-range environment where you will be able to appreciate their magnificent presence up close. The park has daily tours and elephant back rides you’ll never forget.
Located high up in the hills above the Garden Route town, fairways merge seamlessly with lush indigenous vegetation and forests, creating a vista of rolling green hills that descend into the Knysna River. Here you’ll find one of Knysna’s world-class golf courses, Simola Golf & Country Estate.
