Lovely experience. Well knowledge guide


Excellent day out - very interesting and guide gave an excellent commentary- would thoroughly recommend. So nice to see The Feather Beds Nature Reserve return to its natural glory after the devastating fires from previous years.

Had an amazing day out with Featherbed. The staff were very friendly and informative. The views are incredible - I would absolutely recommend.

Barry Nolan

What a lovely day out in Knysna. The walk down was just beautiful with breathtaking views! Definitely a must when in Knysna. It would be nice if they could add in some time for a swim however :-)


You’ll discover Knysna on the Garden Route; it’s charmingly set between the Knynsa Lagoon, Indian Ocean and the Knysna forest.
