If you are visiting South Africa from abroad, you will probably fly to either Cape Town or Johannesburg. From these airports you can take a domestic flight to George. There are several budget airlines that fly between Johannesburg and George. George is less than one hourâs drive from Knysna and offers a wide range of car hire companies.

Alternatively, you can drive directly from Cape Town to Knysna in around 5 hours on the N2. The route takes you across some amazing countryside. The R62 is an alternative scenic route, particularly if you are planning to visit Montague and/or Oudtshoorn.

From George airport, follow the N2 to Knysna, passing Wilderness and Sedgefield. On entering Knysna, continue along Main Street, passing through town until you reach the turn-off into George Rex Drive. Turn right here and follow the signs to Leisure Isle. You will pass the Knysna Golf Course on your left. At the causeway, turn right onto Armstrong Drive to Leisure Isle. Continue on the causeway until you reach a stop sign and the guard hut, where you will turn left. This road, Cearn Drive, will take you along the Knysna Lagoon waterfront which becomes Bayswater Drive, until you reach Bollard Beach. Just past Bollard Beach, on Bayswater Drive, is Bollard Road and we are on this corner! 105 Bayswater Driveâ¦..
