On 12th May I arrived to Knysna, the pearl of the Garden Route. Many say it’s the most stunning place in South Africa, and for good reasons. Knysna is a small town, but the mountains, the lagoon, the island and the sea present this unique geography.

On the first day there I rented a bike and went south to East Head, one of the hills on the side of the opening that connect the lagoon with the ocean. Then I had a strawberry milkshake at East Head Café, because I’m badass. Shut up.

Knysna is a very touristic town, but it’s also very small, so the poor areas and the residential areas are quite close. I took the time to observe some typical examples of the South African culture here.

On the second day I went shopping for a hat, and I bought a camping tent as well, both on the same store of the Knysna Waterfront Mall. Images are better than words….
