    NATURE RESERVE

    Featherbed is a privately-owned, registered Nature Reserve and a South African Heritage Site, No.59. It is a pristine piece of paradise situated on the Western Head of Knysna and is accessible by ferry only.

    In order to protect the splendour of the natural beauty, access to the Reserve is controlled. Numbers are limited and visits are only permitted in the company of the Reserve's specialist guides.

    This 4hour excursion departs daily and reservations are essential. It is a wonderful outing for all ages and fitness levels. Good walking shoes are recommended and remember to bring your camera, hats and sunblock in summer and a warm jacket for the ferry trip in winter.

    The nature reserve offers Knysna adventure activities not to be missed. A perfect outdoor family holiday activity to be enjoyed by both young and old.

    GUIDED WALK
    After driving through the reserve to the top of the Western Head, you can take the optional, 2.2 kilometre guided walk, passing through Milkwood forests onto the steep sandstone cliffs, into ancient Khoi Khoi sea caves and along a scenic coastal path fringed with aromatic fynbos.

    Your guide will inform you on the ecology, fauna, flora, bird and marine life in the reserve.

    On the coastal walk back, you can often spot the resident Black African Oyster Catcher, one of the rarest coastal birds in South Africa.

    Featherbed Nature Reserve is home to a breeding program of the rare Blue Duiker - one of the smallest antelope species in the world - the beautiful Knysna Loerie and the endangered Knysna Sea Horse.Visitors have the rare opportunity to view these creatures on the Reserve.

    FOREST RESTAURANT
    The Forest Restaurant is situated on the edge of the Lagoon under a canopy of Milkwood trees. A wooden deck expands to a beautiful yellowwood bar area and behind that is the kitchen and buffet room where we serve the most sumptuous buffet lunch fit for a king.

    Browse through our unique 'Blue Duiker' Curio Shop where a variety of curios can be purchased including the famous carved 'Feathers of Knysna' collection.

    Whether you choose to join our very popular 4-hour eco-experience, or you decide to use your own boat to have lunch with us, the destination warrants the effort in getting there. If you came with your own vessel and prefer something light and individually prepared, just ask one of our friendly staff for our A la Carte menu.

    Featherbed is one of the most special dining experiences in South Africa and makes for an excellent family day activity.
