Directions For Drivers

From Cape Town/Hermanus/The Winelands/Swellendam/Wilderness: Follow the N2 to Knysna. When you approach Knysna, you will cross a bridge - there will be a small section of the lagoon on your left, and the main lagoon will be on your right. Carry on straight through the town, past the hospital on the left-hand side, and go round a bend to some traffic lights. At this set of traffic lights there is a SPAR shop and a Caltex Garage.

Cross over these traffic lights, keeping in the right-hand lane, and turn right into George Rex Drive (signposted The Heads, Industrial Area, Leisure Island). Continue along this road for approximately 5 km, with the lagoon always being on your right-hand side. You will pass the Knysna Golf Course on your left-hand side, and past the golf course, you will see the turning for Leisure Isle to the right.

Turn right, drive over the causeway and onto the island. Once you are on the island you will see a security hut on the left at a 4-way stop street. Cuningham's Island Guest House is about 100m further on on the left.
