 Post subject: Knysna: ADVICE
Unread postPosted: Thu Mar 09, 2006 9:48 am 
A question: Why is SANParks not offering any accommodation in Knysna. This is one of THE tourist hotspots in our country and I’m convinced that it will be very profitable to add accommodation facilities. What about houseboats?

PS: Haven’t been to Knysna for quite some time and was sadden to see how the appearance of the heads is spoilt by all the building activity on the left one. If you take a photo of the heads now it will look like a photo of a Joburg suburb. They took the “magic” away! :cry:

Knysna was declared a National Lake Area on 13 December 1985 with the intention that it would eventually become a National Park.
In the beginning there was a some opposition to the possibility that SANParks would create Tourism facilities in opposition to local holiday reorts.The decision was taken not to create separate accommodation facilities ,but rather to suport local businesses.
The situation have changed during the past ten years or so and we look forward to the creation of our own unique accommodation facilities in the very near future.
SANParks took over the management of the Forest and mountain catchment areas and we are presently in a process of upgrading several facilities to comply with the best international standards.
It is a very exiting time for us and I am sure that there will be some really wonderful products on the market in the near future.
( watch this space !)
