About Fairy Knowe Hotel

Situated on the banks of the scenic Touw River and the Wilderness National Park, the Fairy Knowe Hotel has been a loved and cherished holiday destination for years. Surrounded by lush gardens with beautiful riverside accommodation, the hotel is only 20 minutes drive from the airport at George, and central to all tourist attractions.

This magical destination is a birders paradise with 280 species where the Knysna Loerie is a daily visitor. Here you enjoy direct access to one of the 18 remaining indigenous forests in the world either by nature trail or river. The vegetation can be seen in its natural environment where trees are marked for easy identification. There is also an 800 year old Yellowwood Big Tree nearby. We also have an Indigenous Tree Trail on the hotel property.

Wilderness is renowned for its vast stretches of beach, it peace and tranquility and the absence for windswept headlands and wild stormy seas. The long stretch of beach embraces the mouths of the Touw and Kaaimans Rivers, and is backed by northward cliffs over which the fringe of the forest reaches down to sea level.
