rosst
The story of Ross Taylor's strength and will to beat both a Great White shark attack AND a rare nerve cancer has become legend. The Great White sustained severe eye injuries from Ross's thumb, causing it to let go of his leg before he was rescued, and the cancer tumours were maltreated for several years, but did not stop Ross from making his amazing journey around the world before peacefully passing away at home in Knysna with his family in 2010 at the age of 29.

kitefest
Kite festivals take place all over the world. They are not competitions as such, rather a celebration of getting out in to the open and merely enjoying the flying of kites. Kite-flying is something that anyone can do, regardless of age, ability or disability or community.

beerfest
The Lions Club Sedgefield are at it again! This time organising the Sedgefield Slow Town Beer Festival. As long as there is a need, the many devoted and never tiring members of the Sedgefield Lions will endeavour to find fun and entertaining ways to raise funds for worthy charities (and they have a lot of fun doing it).

knysnaestuary
Sylvia Earle, the celebrated marine biologist and acclaimed oceanographer of the organisation aptly named Mission Blue, has recognised Knysna and surrounds as an International Hope Spot.
Casting your eyes across the expanse of the Knysna Estuary you will certainly marvel at its beauty.

blombostrail
When you step onto the sandy pathway of the Blombos Trail you immediately understand why this trail is so favoured by twitchers. Walkers and hikers are very often surrounded by birdsong throughout this trail.

Fish Eagle Lodge is well positioned with beautiful views overlooking the Knysna Lagoon, set against a ridge in a secluded country setting only 5km from the Knysna Waterfront. The perfect base to explore the surrounding indigenous forests, trails, lakes and magnificent beaches.
