South Africa

summer volunteer trips

Knysna, South Africa

Knysna (pronounced nice-na) is the jewel of the Garden Route. It is South Africa’s favorite holiday town! You can expect white beaches, stunning forests and beautiful expansive views. It is a safe and quirky town, full of character!

Knysna is also the adventure capital of the Garden Route. There is really something for everyone, if you fancy challenging your vertigo, we have the world’s highest bungee jump, or you can skydive along the coast! There a number of outdoor hikes leading to beautiful scenery. You can experience members of the cat family such as leopard and cheetah in close proximity; visit an Elephant Sanctuary; get up close to monkeys at Monkeyland; or enjoy a vast array of bird life at the Southern Hemisphere’s largest aviary!

We also have many recommended restaurants and night spots! We think everyone should visit Knysna at least once in their lives!

Challenge Level: Comfortable

Knysna’s Challenge level is Comfortable- meaning you will have access to all amenities, including banks, internet, restaurants and you can shop to your heart’s desire at some unique and quirky outlets. We also have a great African Market for all those gifts you’ll be needing to take home!

And in your spare time...
