South Africa Day 8: Knysna and Featherbed Nature Reserve

Knysna is situated in part of the Garden Route in the Western Cape Province. The harbour at Knysna was the starting point for our excursion across the lagoon by ferry to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, where we were taken by a 4×4 trailer up to the headland of the Reserve. From there we took a walk down through a coastal forest, into ancient sea caves, before returning for a buffet lunch under Milkwood trees. On our return to Knysna, we had time for a walk through the waterfront area and the main shopping area.
