Knysna Heads coming in to the lagoon _8500463-Pano



The Knysna Heads are one of the natural beauties of this garden route town. Not easy to navigate due to submerged rocks and moving sand banks.

The history of Knysna begins with a handful of Dutch settlers who hacked their way through the forests and established farms in the region. The farm Melkhoutkraal, which included the entire Knysna lagoon basin and the Heads, was first granted to Stephanus Terblans in 1770.
