Itinerary

Day 1

George Airport to Knysna

Duration60 Minutes

Knysna Log Inn

Built in 1998, the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel embodies an "indigenous" concept that combines the character and the spirit of the surrounding indigenous forests with Knysna's romantic history. On entering the lobby of one of the largest log structures in the Southern Hemisphere, exquisitely carved solid Yellow wood trunks tower upwards to the magnificent Scandinavian hammer trusses.

Rays of sunshine flooding through the spectacular stained glass windows, illuminate the splendid solid Yellowwood staircase. The autumn hues of the slate flooring and the extensive use of natural river stone combine with the wood to create an atmosphere of tranquil balance. Truly "in tune with nature"

The Knysna Log-Inn Hotel is very centrally located in the middle of town and ideally situated for sight-seeing. The Hotel is within easy walking distance to the Knysna Quays (better known as the Knysna Waterfront) - just 200m away, as are the ferries to the Heads.
