Knysna is more or less a giant garden. Even walking down Main Road in the centre of town will give you an idea of the greenness of the area. Once a year, Knysna’s private residents open their gardens for public viewing. The event happens each year in October and is a sight to behold. With the combination of spring being in full bloom and the immaculate attention to detail and precision owners have in their gardens; this is an event not to be missed. Photographs allowed!
If you are not in Knysna during October (or even if you are), head over to the Garden Route Botanical Gardens. Known as the “green lung” of George, this unique haven is a real break from shopping sprees and adventure-filled activities.
