Wildlife Activities

Elephant Park

The Knysna Elephant Park offers a rare and exciting opportunity to get up close and personal with the elephants, which live in a controlled, free range environment just outside Knysna. Visitors are allowed to touch and feed the elephants, Harry, Sally and Duma.


Just 30 minutes from Knysna, Monkeyland is a unique primate sanctuary, home to many varied species of monkey from several continents which were captive-bred prior to their release at Monkeyland. This is the world's only multi-species, free roaming primate sanctuary.

Birds of Eden

Spend a morning at Birds of Eden, the largest free flight bird aviary in the world. A top eco-tourism attraction, the unique two hectare dome spans a gorge of indigenous forest and houses over 100 species of birds.
