There is lots of excitement in the air as Knysna is getting ready for the Annual Pick n Pay Oyster Festival from 03 to 12 July 2015. With the weekends being very busy with cycling and marathons, visit during the week, bring the family, and beat the Winter School Holiday blues.
Your children will the over the moon and the only problem they will have is to choose what to do. Humpty Dumpty Eggs have an extended kiddies programme in place for this year’s festival. From fun sporting activities, cultural and culinary workshops to live children’s entertainment. www.oysterfestival.co.za
Moms and dads can now enjoy lunch or participating in the over 100 festival events…….and the kids will beg you to stay longer.
This time Daniel Radcliffe (better known to all of us as Harry Potter) has left his broom behind and have been spotted climbing up Table Mountain. By looking at his face when he reached the top, I think he must have realised that the only Magic around is our Magical South Africa…….Climb on your broom Harry, Knysna awaits!
SANParks confirmed the sighting of a leopard in broad daylight in the Diepwalle area of the Knysna Forest on 2nd May 2015.
Come to Paradise (Knysna..!), take a walk in the forest – there are many amazing hiking trails – and you just might be lucky enough to see one of these beauties. If not, do not despair, the Knysna Forest has much to offer, but, just like the Lotto, you have to be IN it to experience it.
Go on, be daring, you know you want to.

On Tuesday 12th May our Guests, Mr Wolfs & Mr Paffenl went shark cage diving with White Shark Africa in Mossel Bay.
They were a bit apprehensive but excited to take the plunge and even had hamburgers for dinner the night before to make sure there was ”enough for the sharks”!
Luckily they came back with all their parts intact.
