Rheenendal, Garden Route

Along the splendour of the Garden Route in the Western Cape, lies the little settlement of Rheenendal, in close proximity to Knysna. In fact, most consider this hamlet a part of Knysna.

Rheenendal is, officially, part of the Eden District Municipality, which is as visually spectacular as its name implies, thanks to the lush fertile vegetation of this part of South Africa. Being perched within these idyllic surrounds means that Rheenendal is the perfect holiday hotspot for those that need a getaway.

The beauty of the forests, rivers and coastlines of Knysna and its surrounds lend Rheenendal a very special quality. The fauna and flora of the area infuse every part of Rheenendal with the magical quality that lures visitors to South Africa again and again. These ones will frequently enjoy spotting monkeys, porcupines, small buck and plenty of bird species.

In addition to being a convenient base for those who love exploring the natural loveliness of this country, Rheenendal is popular amongst avid golfing enthusiasts as the Simola Golf Course is very nearby. Hiking and cycling trails are all around, as are horse riding trails for those who want to experience the area from a different perspective.

There are also beaches and the Knysna Lagoon for families and friends that want to relax at the water’s edge and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine of this pristine landscape.
