Why visit Knysna….

Why visit Knysna….because local is lekker and all the locals are even more lekker.

When you can travel the word, why choose Knysna.  Knysna, situated in the heart of the Garden Route, the pearl of the oyster.

One get onto the Knysna spirit the moment you drive along the N2 and start seeing the Knysna Lagoon.  Joggers and cyclists and parents with kids and dogs walking all along the lagoon.  The forest, the mountains, the Knysna Heads, the beaches.


We are going to take our time and explore our beautiful Knysna….WHY?  Because Local is really lekker.

I dread Mondays more than Friday the 13th!


I dread Mondays more than Friday the 13th!  For most people who consider Friday 13th unlucky, it is more a question of what they avoid doing, rather than what they do on this day.

I have rearranged my brain by now and I believe this should be called Happy Friday the 13th.  Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. A positive person anticipates happiness, health and success, and believes he or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty.

So let us make a bet.  On the next Friday the 13th, we all try to do something that we would never have done – something like Skydive, Bungy Jump (the highest in the world) or ride an Elephant.

Make sure you book your stay at the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel now before the next Friday the 13th, and we will send you on an adventure.

Back to School…

So, 2017 has finally begun and finally time to set all of those promised New Year’s resolutions to work.  We all have them, even if we say we don’t, we still secretly have them, telling everyone that we do not make them.  We do this so that we do not feel disappointed for not keeping them.

Well, mine has started with a bang.  A Bang, but nothing else.  Let’s just get the year started.  Let us wait for the 4th… and I am still waiting for myself, but I work with a plan.  The kids have gone back to school and it is time for all of the parents to take a break.

Back-To-School-Special-Banner.jpg Let things settle back in and remember:

28th January 2017 is Chinese New Year – that is when our resolutions will all kick in.

Bring it on…. As the sun is about to set on 2016, we want to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal readers for following our blog.  Hope you had as much fun as we had this year with it, sometimes with a bit of “tongue it cheek humour”.

Best wishes for 2017.  Enjoy you New Year’s Party wherever you might be and whatever you might do.

And remember:   You can reset your resolutions on January 14th (Orthodox New Year) and February 8th (Chinese New Year). After that, not even I can’t help you.

Splish-Splash, I’m not taking a bath…

Rotary Knysna SPLASH 2016!

Knysna SPLASH, the annual festival presented by the Rotary Club of Knysna, will be back on 27 & 28 December 2016 with four fun-filled events for the whole family.

SPLASH is the Garden Route’s entertaining family water-based festival. Four exciting events provide enjoyment for both participants and spectators and challenges for the whole family!

Have a great time while supporting some of Knysna’s community projects.


Now in its sixth year, Knysna SPLASH is an important fundraiser for Rotary, which donates all proceeds from the entry fees to local charities.

We are looking forward to seeing both locals and visitors participating in the SPLASH festival. It promises to be lots of fun for the whole family, competitors and spectators, and it’s for a great cause!

EMAIL us if you want to bet on a duck.

Love is in the air…..

Love is in the air…..

With Xmas only a few days away, I am worried.

I have just seen our beloved bearded friend, old man Santa, blowing kisses to a lady….  Is Santa in LOVE and has he forgotten about Xmas?  Is this Mrs Clause?


I spend my morning on the internet, searching for Mrs Clause and this her.  Is Santa and the Mrs in love all over again…..quick….let’s hope he reads my email, my “whatsapp” still shows “delivered, but not read”  Why is there nothing under my tree yet!

At least I have the joy of living in Knysna, one of the best Xmas destinations in the world.  Beaches, Braai and if Santa doesn’t, bring me a present, I know of a good shop that will use my credit card with a smile.
