The charming little holiday hamlet of Buffalo Bay, or Buffs, as it is fondly known by the locals, is without a doubt, one of the most popular beach in the area. It is a hotspot for water sports activities such as surfing, Stand up Paddling and kayaking. Aquatic sports fanatics often frequent this relatively sheltered beach throughout the year and during the summer months it’s the favoured hub for holiday revellers as well.
Two decades ago, a passionate campaign was underway to save a delicate soft-winged creature whose last known remaining stronghold was a small splinter of land in Brenton-on-Sea. The campaign resulted in one of the most incredible conservation success stories of our region.

One, three? As many as five…experts cannot agree over how many elephants still roam the Knysna forests, but recent camera trap evidence and specialised genetic testing suggest at least five. Will you ever get to cross paths with these ghosts of the forest. Probably not, and that’s a good thing - as the most southerly free roaming jumbos in the world, they deserve to be left in peace. But, you could ride where they roam on the Pennypichers Dr Evil Classic.
Whether you are keen to tear up some MTB single track, take a guided walk through a farm where a myriad of fynbos species are rooted, go horse-riding through an indigenous forest or simply relax while quaffing some chilled local Sauvignon Blanc, we suggest you make a point to head just a short drive west of Knysna, to the Fisanthoek area. Here you can do all those things and so much more.
When you step into the cool shade of the forest at the start of the Kranshoek Coastal Hiking Trail, just be warned - for the next four hours or so you will be presented with, not only a serious physical challenge, but also a sweet serenity which is so difficult to find these days. The trail engages all your senses; leaving you feeling both tired and utterly elated.
