Visit Pledge Nature Reserve in the heart of Knysna to view indigenous plants to the area and some history. Before Knysna was officially named a town, it was made up of small settlements, one of which was Newhaven, just east of today’s Long Street – the lo g straight roadthat bisects the town and runs down to Thesen Island.

It's a nice way to spend an afternoon in the outdoors. There are walks that you can do and places to go and have a picnic. The reserve is well kept and clean.

This a great little reserve mostly under forest with easy walks, wish I'd had enough time to explore whole area! The staff should be better educated on things as you are required to pay a small entry fee. Lovely little diversion into nature!

We took our doggies for a walk in this beautiful park in the middle of Knysna. You will not believe that it's in town. More like in the forest. Very clean and the paths are swept every day. A real hidden gem!

A ideal walk for those wishing to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. A short easy walk among beautiful Protea flowers and sceneries.

It doesn't take long to walk every path in this nature reserve but it's worth it. There are lots of pretty plants. It's a great walk and the view at the top is really nice.

It could be a really nice was but I found it to have so many small problems that I couldn't fully enjoy it. Some of the signs have been pulled out. The colours on the feet marking the paths do not correspond with the ones...More

When I arrived in Knysna I was disappointed to find my hostel was too far from the forest and famous national parks to get there without my own transport. Discovering the Pledge Nature Reserve right near Main Road was exactly what I needed. It's easy...More

What a pleasurable little hike on this little paradise right in the middle of the town. With the easy trails, not much effort to climb to the top where one is treated to a breath-taking view of the Knysna Heads and the Leisure and Thesen...More
