Knysna Living Local

Western Cape, South Africa

Knysna Living Local is the collective name for Community Tourism Experiences within the greater Knysna Area. As its website says: ‘You cannot call a quick drive through the township a cultural experience – you have to participate and not just be a spectator.’ The experiences embrace community and cultural living, from dance and music to language, art and craft and culinary traditions.

Travellers are invited to sample fresh roosterkoek and moskonfyt while listening to locals tell their stories, dance the Hotnot Riel around a crackling fire and to visit the burial place of the revered Griqua ancestors. Home stays form part of the experience so visitors can witness first hand how life operates in this part of the world.
