Local Area


Fabulously located on the Eastern Head of Knysna on the exquisite Western Cape Coast, Pezula Nature & Spa is set on South Africa's famous Garden Route.

Surrounded by rugged cliffs, ancient forests, and sheltered beaches, the area is the perfect spot for relaxation, exploration, and experiencing the local culture.

This luxury hotel in South Africa is just a few minutes' drive from Knysna - one of the Garden Route's most desirable travel destinations. A cosmopolitan town steeped in history, Knysna offers fabulous restaurants, charming coffee houses, waterfront shopping and lagoon cruises.

Plan excursions to animal sanctuaries, take the family on an adventure sports excursion and explore the local areas of Sedgefield, Brenton, Noetzie, Rheenedal, Belvidere, and Buffalo Bay. With such a great location on the Pezula Private Estate, even in the resort there is so much to see and do. Take a guided tour of the indigenous forests, horse-ride, play championship golf, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the view.

Boasting an enviable climate, Knysna is at its warmest in December but the moderate climate offers the perfect destination year-round. Referred to as the 'secret season', even the mild winters on the Garden Route see average temperatures of 19°C and sunny wind-still days.

Culture and Heritage

The area is steeped in history, from the Khoisan art of the Cango Caves which dates back 10,000 years, to the splendid Ostrich Palaces of Oudtshoorn's feather boom and the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George, just an hour's drive from Knysna. A number of historic churches in the area are worth a visit. Just 10 minutes from Knysna, in the suburb of Belvidere is the Holy Trinity Church, a beautiful example of 12th Century Norman architecture.

Extreme Sports

Adrenaline seekers will not be disappointed with a trip to the Garden Route. Descend into the ocean in a steel cage for an afternoon of shark cage diving where you can get up close and personal with Great White Sharks at Mossel Bay, only 80km from the Resort. If you dare, take the jump from Bloukrans Bridge - the world's highest commercial bungee jump, less than an hour's drive from Knysna.

A tree top canopy tour in the magnificent Tsitsikamma Forest near Storms River, about 2 hours from Knysna, involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 metres above the forest floor, while admiring the spectacular scenery. For a unique experience, ride an ostrich on a farm in Oudtshoorn, just 2 hour's drive from Knysna, the heart of the ostrich industry in South Africa.

Experience the unique sensation of a balloon ride over the Klein Karoo area, 2 hour's drive inland from Knysna. Drift on a gentle breeze and enjoy the panoramic views of Oudtshoorn and the majestic Swartberg mountain range.

Guests looking for a slightly slower pace can relax on the secluded Noetzie beach, take a ferry trip, or a romantic sunset yacht cruise. With horse riding, canoeing, and hiking on site at the resort there is always something to keep everyone occupied.

Eco Tourism

The Cango Caves, just two hour's drive from Knysna and 28 km from Oudtshoorn, are an intricate maze of vast chambers and tunnels hewn from the limestone landscape. More than 20 million years old, this National Monument is one of the top 10 most visited South African Attractions.

The Garden Route provides many opportunities for visitors to see wildlife in their natural habitat as well as a number of animal sanctuaries and parks. Monkeyland, Knysna Elephant Park and Birds of Eden, all within 20 km of Knysna, are unique sanctuaries where animals and birds are bred in captivity.

Two game lodges close to Pezula have rhino, leopard, giraffe, zebra, buffalo and kudu flourishing in their natural habitat.

The wildlife of the Indian Ocean including dolphins, whales, Cape fur seals and numerous sea birds can be observed up close on sea-kayaks, motors boats and yachts.

Walks, hikes and trails along the coast or in the indigenous forests provide endless opportunities to enjoy the fauna and flora of the region, including many rare and protected species.

Simola Golf

The magnificence of the landscape at Simola inspired golfing legend Jack Nicklaus to design a masterpiece amidst the rolling hills at Kysna, South Africa.

Forest, mountain and river are seen from an undulating valley and the panorama expands to uninterrupted overviews of the Knysna Lagoon and the famous Knysna Heads leading to the Ocean.

The golfer will be distracted by this awesome beauty, but there is much to concentrate on as Nicklaus has maximised the use of the hilly terrain to create an undulating, meandering golf challenge regarded as one of the most favoured among the abundant golf visitors to this area.

The first seven valley holes have those magnificent views of the Knysna River, while the 11 holes on the opposing side of the ridge have a sense of space due to the uninterrupted panorama of the surrounding area, which includes the Knysna Heads, lagoon and mountains.

Immaculate Kikuyu fairways are punctuated with excellent Bent Grass, many of which are smaller than expected of a modern course, but which are strategically designed to challenge the golfer to choose the right approach to them to maximise scoring chances.

Carts are compulsory and are included in the green fee.
