September is Tourism Month which is celebrated annually to encourage South Africans to explore their own country. Knysna & Partners (K&P) will participate with a programme which includes five different walks in the greater Knysna area.
Chairperson Elmay Bouwer says that “Walk Knysna” will encourage locals to get to know the area better and possibly do or see something they may not have done before.
“We live in one of the premier tourist destinations in the country, but many of us have not been tourists in our own town before. Let’s walk Knysna together and see the beaches of Sedgefield, visit Judah Square, stroll into the forest, and learn about our historical buildings,” she said.
Bouwer said that #WalkKnysna and #WalkSedgefieldZA is in support of the #IDoTourism and #WeDoTourism campaigns launched by South African Tourism which are a call to action to all South Africans to play a role in tourism.
