Knysna Elephants, Wine & Catamaran Day Trip

Knysna Elephants, Wine & Catamaran Day Trip offers a great mix of sights and activities. At the Knysna Elephant park in Harkerville you are able to get up close and personal with these gentle giants, after which we venture to the neighbouring boutique wine farm of Luka Vineyards for a wine tasting and lunch stop. Once replenished we head back to the Knysna Heads view point, and then enjoy a beautiful sunset cruise on the Knysna Lagoon.
