Day 6 of 16 Cape Town to Victoria Falls
Today is rest day! After already immersing ourselves in the relaxed atmosphere of Knysna, we are very much looking forward to spending a whole day here to enjoy everything this small seaside town has to offer.
Take a ride in a local taxi “Putt Putt”!
Magnificent 700 year-old yellowwood forest
This beautiful, buzzing marina town has something for everyone. If you’re feeling to spend the day in more of a chilled fashion then you can laze by the lagoon, gorging on delectable seafood or take a leisurely stroll through the assortment of unique, boutique shops and grab a coffee in one of the quirky cafes. Or, if you’ve woken up ready for more adventure then you have the choice of taking a catamaran to see the Knysna Heads, hiking through the surrounding ancient forests imbued with magnificent 700 year-old yellowwood trees or taking a trip to Knysna Elephant Park where you can grab a bucket of fruit at the entrance and get close enough to hand feed them some juicy treats. But watch out, these cheeky characters are likely to snatch the fruit from your bucket when you’re not looking!
Knysna, scenic golf courses with spectacular views of the ocean
For the sporty types Knysna is home to many scenic golf courses, with spectacular views of the ocean and it’s expansive mountainous forests, as well as offering some of the most idyllic beaches on the Garden Route coast where you can try a spot of surfing, kite-surfing, wake-boarding and paddle-boarding.
Well earned day off, an opportunity to get to know the team mates
Don’t forget to take a ride in one of the local taxi’s as viewing the streets from inside a “Putt Putt” is great fun and a chance to experience how the locals travel around. As the evening sets in, we recommend you go and satisfy your taste buds by sampling some of South Africa’s famed craft beer at Michell’s Brewery, the oldest microbrewery in the country.
This well earned day off is such a great opportunity to get to know the rest of group a little bit better, which makes tonight’s dinner back at our favourite Waterfront restaurant even livelier than usual. We have to live up to our rowdy biker bunch reputation after all!
