Exploring my country: Knysna – Yearend 2015

Knysna is a little town in the Garden Route rich with history, from mining some of the first gold in South Africa, to the Timber trade. It is about 72km (44.7 miles) from my hometown, George.

Our office was  getting tired of just meeting up every year, eating, and then dispersing. We have hit most of the restaurant in George along the years, so we decided to go to the Knysna Featherbed Reserve for the year end function. This was one of the best year end functions to date.

The trip included a ferry trip across the lagoon to the Western Head (Featherbed Reserve), a 4×4 trailer drive up the headlands, which had some spectacular views along the way and then there was an optional 2.2km walk through the fynbos (which we took) stopping at ancient sea caves and leading us back to the base for a delicious buffet style meal.

The weather played along nicely this day and we had a sunny walk through the fynbos. We took some amazing photos, some of which I will share with you.

We don’t often get to be tourist in our country as the prices are generally catering for the overseas guests, so this was such a nice treat for our office. The views were spectacular, making you appreciate the beautiful area we live in.
