KNYSNA is most well known for the Knysna heads - two great sandstone cliffs guarding the mouth of the lagoon which connects the estuary with the sea - but apart from this very unique and breathtaking feature, Knysna offers tourists a variety of attractions and scenery. The Knysna forest areas are so naturally beautiful and practically beg us to take time out and just relax. Visiting the Millwood Forests where gold was mined many years ago, will give you a feeling of stepping back in time as you seem to walk into a scene that's part of Dalene Matthee story "Circles in the forest". Evidence of elephants roaming the forest is available so if you spend lots of time on forest walks, you might not need to visit the local Elephant Park or Sanctuary! A variety of different boat trips are available on the Knysna lagoon and the lagoon beach areas are perfect for sundowner picnics. Brenton on Sea and Buffalo Bay is connected by a 7km stretch of beach and is only 20min's drive from Knysna. WILDERNESS is a nature lovers' paradise with its long golden beaches, extensive waterways and lush indigenous forest. This quaint little town does not just overlook the sea, but also the placid lagoon (Touw River Estuary), the Serpentine, which meanders between the Touw River, Island Lake and Rondevlei. Outdoor activities in Wilderness include hiking, mountain-biking, birdwatching, hang- and paragliding, horse riding, scenic drives, canoeing, abseiling, kloofing and angling.
