Although it was the only day on our trip which was really wet we had much fun walking the boardwalk to the suspension bridge at Storms river mouth. The nice restaurant let us sit down to get dry again... Absolutely recommendable: The bungee jump, also for no-jumpers very thrilling to watch, you can even cross the walk under the bridge... More

A holiday experiment to see if we could stay in one place for month; our previous visits to South Africa had involved travelling around but we had visited Knysna before so we knew what we were coming to. The house we rented was perfect for us, 2 bedrooms, which enabled some visitors to come and go and the month stay... More

The trekking and then walking along the suspension bridge and making it to the hill top was amazing. Would love to do it again. Absolutely breathtaking.

This area of the garden route is simply stunning. We were thankful we had a Wild Card as the prices are a bit steep for entry and I feel for the foreigners who pay more, although they do benefit vastly our weak currency. We had a lovely picnic near the parking area overlooking the sea - being a braai grid... More

Despite not being told that the main suspension bridge was closed for major repair this is a great place to visit. Very scenic and some great hikes.

Across the length of the National Park, one is treated to sweeping landscapes of ocean, forests, and gorgeous towns like Knysna. There is plenty to see and do, including many adventure activities as well as chilling out on the beautiful beaches and staying in excellent accommodations. One could easily spend an entire holiday in the area! We visited Knysna for... More
