If you’re looking for the perfect African getaway then look no further than the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa. Our 5 star hotel is situated on Thesen Island and offers guests a choice of two restaurants, a luxurious spa, a pool deck and a water club. While staying at the Turbine Hotel, why not try a luxurious seaside safari – one of the many, many reasons to visit Knysna.
Africa is well known for its safaris and wildlife, but what many tourists don’t realise is that the continent has a wide variety of marine life and coastlines that are just as magnificent, so combining an African safari with a seaside view while you watch the sun set against the backdrop of the ocean, seems like the perfect choice for a holiday.
The Featherbed Company offers many unique activities in Knysna, one of which includes a cruise upon the Knysna lagoon and beside the Featherbed private nature reserve. This exciting activity includes a return ferry trip on the Knysna Lagoon to the Western Head, a drive up to the headland of the reserve, a specialist guide to provide information throughout the activity, an optional guide to walk you through the coastal forest and fynbos and into the ancient sea caves, and a buffet lunch at an outdoor restaurant under the Milkwood trees. This activity is perfect for the entire family and is an experience that won’t quickly be forgotten.If you are the type of person who prefers to watch the marine life rather than game, then look no further than the Knysna Sunset Cruise. This cruise allows for guests to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the African sunset over the lagoon. The “Oyster Boat” takes guests towards the Knysna Heads and allows them to marvel at the sea life that is in and around the lagoon. The experience is tranquil and peaceful in every way and each guest is given a glass of wine and a few fresh oysters to enjoy during the trip.
So if you are the type of person who is looking for something different to do while in Knysna, then consider the seaside safaris. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
