Cost of taxis

Hi - we are trying to decide which area to stay in Knysna and as there is not much availability left (for end of Nov) it looks likely it will be either Paradise or Thesan Island.

We believe the waterfront is the best place for restaurants and going out in the evening(?)and so before booking we would ideally like to get an indication of distance in terms of walking and/or a rough indication of the cost of a taxi from either place. As if too far to walk or extortionate for a taxi we would maybe try again to get somewhere more central.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you don't have a car, I would highly recommend the Protea Hotel Knysna Quays. It is right at the waterfront. We always stay there when we travel to Knysna. No need to worry about taxis at all. proteahotels.com/protea-hotel-knysna-quays.h…

Personally I find the waterfront a bit busy, touristy and over-developed. You could consider staying on Leisure Island - there are many, many guesthouses and hotels and it's safe to just walk around at night between the numerous restaurants.

I'm not sure about taxis prices, but I'd reckon on maximum R50 (GBP4) for a taxi around the Knysna Town area?
