This area is alive with great souvenir shops and excellent dining opportunities. We bought interesting souvenirs like beaded cutlery and recycled elephant dung notepaper. This was a huge hit back home. The waterfront is a short walk from town and other retail therapy shops!

Waterfront in Knysna is a small but pleasing place to roam around, shop local artefacts souvenirs and gifts, and dine in one of the several restaurants, serving local delicious food, specially fish preparations. Several hotels situated on the waterfront provide comfortable accommodation.
