Flawlessly set in a secluded country estate, Knysna Hollow Country Estate is located near Knysna’s famous lagoon and just minutes from the centre of this pretty seaside town. The modern Cape Country Manor House is Knysna Hollow’s focal point and a relaxed space where you can revel in authentic hospitality and delicious cuisine. The quaint coastal village of Knysna is considered the jewel in the crown of South Africa’s Garden Route and well known for its rich forests, endless lakes and see-it-to-believe-it beaches.

Knysna appeals to a wide audience: from active outdoor enthusiasts to discerning travellers who enjoy the finer things in life. Head to the marina-style Knysna Waterfront to sample the local shops and eateries or try the fine dining and boutique shopping experience that Thesen Island has to offer. Take a short ferry ride to Featherbed Nature Reserve and follow the gorgeous coastal and cliff-top paths, discovering ancient caves and sandy coves. And no stay in this town is complete without visiting the breath-taking and iconic Knysna Heads – two large, rocky headlands that loom over the storied channel between the Indian Ocean and the Knysna Estuary.

  • Stylish rooms with private, garden-facing verandas
  • Restaurant, bar and sun deck at the Cape Country Manor House
