Getting there: take the Buffels Bay turnoff from the N2 just before Knysna from the Cape Town side.
Almost all of the trails start off with the novelty of crossing the river via a hand-pulled pont. Please do not miss the lifejackets near the landing but on the other side of the road!
Easy to follow sandy trail heads inland with the river on your right.
Sandy track in the shade of the dune forest
We spotted a Knysna Loerie hopping along the branches in the canopy — always a treat!
Watch the tides if you are going on beach
We realised near the end that we had taken a jeep track that was actually closed; unfortunately the signage at the point where we reached the beach was a bit lacking.
