About Forest Glen

Forest Glen is located in Knysna, along the southern coast of South Africa about 500km east of Cape Town. The property resides in the leafy suburb of Hunters Home, situated between the Knysna Central Business District and the famous Knysna Heads. Knysna Golf Course is a mere chip and a putt away, as are the famous Simola and Pezula Golf Estates.

Your hosts, Tania and John, share their love for people, their community and their environment through Forest Glen. We are actively involved in local economic development and community projects and are well connected to local businesses and communities. Through projects run with the community we are able to offer our guests an experience making or buying local craft.

We would like our guests to feel right at home while maintaining a professional level of space.
