The district of Rheenendal lies on the edge of the Knysna forest, a piece of blissful countryside and home to artists, nature lovers and skilled crafters. The area consists of pastured land and fynbos, separated from the coastal towns in the Western Cape Province by vast forests.
Rheenendal has become extremely popular following the establishment of the Rheenendal Ramble, a route that runs from the national highway to the old gold mining areas of Millwood. The ramble encompasses forest walks, beautiful craft centres, mountain bike trails and foodies can enjoy farm fresh goods and local preserves at quaint farm stalls.
Rivers run through Rheenendal, sit on the banks and watch as brightly coloured kingfishers dart into the water to spear a fish or the majestic fish eagle swoops down to collect larger prey.
Only 22km from Knysna, Rheenendal is perfectly balanced between peaceful rural living and modern conveniences at your doorstep.
