Counting Down …


Days to Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival!

Have a #Knys1


Worthy Prize Winner

During the first weekend in May, Knysna log-Inn had the pleasure of hosting several netball teams who took part in the Netbal tournament in Knysna.

Bianca Leighton was one of the lovely young ladies who played games for her school, Gene Louw.

When the team were back in class they had to do assignments on their experience in Knysna and Bianca got 30/30 for hers! A little birdie then whispered in our General Manager’s ear and of course Marti was so chuffed that she invited Bianca and her family to spend a weekend with us.

Walking trails through the indigenous Knysna forest, informative guided tours, overnight hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, birding, bee keeping courses, guided mine tours, picnics, kloofing, swimming and simply just relaxing.  2012 marked the centenary of the arrival of the Van Reenen family in the Barrington & Rheenendal district.
