    This place is amazing! My kids loved it. The staff and rangers are incredible and made the experience of the daily tours, Elephant work and staying at the resort an unbelievable memory. Wellington was our guide and he was amazing, so great with the kids as well and he made the experience what it was, cant thank him enough.

    The road from Knysna to Avontuur was marked on our map as paved but it turned out after a few kilometers that was not true. We pressed forward anyway - driving an SUV. The pass itself offered some nice views over the mountain ranges but nothing spectacular. But when we arrived Die Vlug the amazing experience started - beautiful rock formations in deep canyons made the long and stressful drive just a memory. If you want to see that part only you would have to drive from Knysna to George and the highways N12, N9 and finally R62 to Avontuur. From there the dirt road to Prince Alfred Pass is the best part of that mountain crossing. Don't drive up to the Pass it's not worth it.

    The description was “moderately challenging”. It’s a bit more than that. Just beautiful at the river. Perfect for private swimming. If you find my driver’s licence in the river (fell out when I took out my camera) please return it!

    My family absolutely loved Peter's friendliness and knowledge of the area. My teenagers loved the cruise and we will be back in the future! Thanks again to Peter and your team.

    Bucket list stuff!

    The Southern Yachting Academy has it all! Cutting edge & self-paced course content ~ brilliant for distance learning.

    The biggest win for me was being able to complete the entire practical course plus the exams in only 7 days. All thanks to world class instruction from Captain Ben and Owner Mark Orpen (class act).

    The cherry on top is the exquisite setting of the Knysna Lagoon. Unforgettable experience, a must for wanna-be sailers!

    A great trip out with Brian at a quiet time and just the two of us on board. It was too rough to pass out the heads but stilll a good fun ride around the bay. No need for nerves and loads of sights to see.

    The company showed excellence in organizing , planning the trip, taking into account our points of interests. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly guides.
    We will certainly come back to them for other trips in the Southern part of Africa.

    It was such a great experience to rock the route with you!
    I sometimes wished the day was longer to fit in more fun activities, hikes etc
    Everyone could find enough time to make one adventure for themselves e.g. bungy
    Loved the insider coffee, lunch and cheesecake spots.

    I would strongly reccomend the fishing trip, tons of bonitos and yellowfin strolling and nice Red Romans and others with deep fishing.
    Ideal for expert fishermans not so confortable for kids and families.
