Knysna Hike and Bike
We spent a total of 8 nights in and around Knysna but if you are short on time this is the perfect activity.
Knysna Hike and Bike offer walking tours, bike tours, walking food and drink tours, and hikes.
We went on the walking food and drink tour and loved it. We always find that if you only have one or two nights somewhere, deciding on places to eat can be tricky – with this tour we went to seven places in a few hours!
