Half Day Featherbed Nature Reserve Tour
Knysna Lagoon, more accurately an estuary, has five fresh water rivers flowing in from the surrounding Outeniqua Mountains meeting with the surge of sea water from the Indian Ocean through the mighty headlands – known as the ‘Knysna Heads’ - the grand sandstone cliffs towering above the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon. The Featherbed Nature Reserve, situated on the Western Head in Knysna, is the premier eco-experience on the Garden Route. Take a ferry trip on the Knysna Lagoon to the Western Head, followed by a 4x4 vehicle & trailer drive up the headland onto the Reserve, stopping at spectacular viewpoints. A specialist guide will provide information on history, fauna & flora. An optional guided 2.2km walk through coastal forest and fynbos, followed by a buffet lunch at an outdoor restaurant under a canopy of Milkwood trees. After a leisurely lunch, return to the mainland by ferry.
