Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Thesen Island, in Garden Route

Knysna is one of the jewels of the Garden Route, known for its scenic lagoon and loved for its laid-back vibe. Thesen Islands is a massive estate and a Blue Flag Marina, built right on the lagoon and canals, making it one of the most beautiful and serene retreats in the Western Cape. Chilled Squirrel and Venture South have partnered to provide electric bike rentals to ensure that visitors to Knysna get to see the splendour for themselves, from the comfort of the saddle.

These bikes have the dual advantage of fat tyres and an electric motor. This means that riders can go further, for longer, and explore places that would otherwise be difficult to access. The fat tyres enable the bikes to tackle rocky and sandy terrain in safety. In addition, riders get to drink in the fresh coastal air and feel its warmth on their faces. This is about celebrating the untainted loveliness of the South African outdoors.

These excursions are excellent for the whole family. The e-bikes can be rented from Thesen Island Living, which is situated in the harbour town, past (not through) the entrance to the gated estate. From here, visitors can head out to explore the walkways, bridges, roads and beaches of Thesen Islands and the surrounding lagoon. A little further afield, cyclists can head out to Leisure Isle, past the wetlands and golf courses, to get a unique view of the lagoon and the iconic Heads (two mountainous watchmen, guarding the narrow sea entrance to Knysna). Or, they can explore the town and its many unique shops.

Knysna is situated between Plettenberg Bay (about 30 minutes away) and Mossel Bay (almost an hour away). It is a historical town with lashings of charm and an inviting atmosphere.
