Listening to the call of the Fish Eagles and the other early morning sounds of the African bush, it’s extremely hard to believe that we are only 23 kms away from the bustling chaos of the city. Areena Riverside Resort, on the banks of the Kwelera tidal river, is just east of East London’s city centre in the Eastern Cape.
Situated about 500 km from Cape Town, Knysna is one of the Southern Cape coast's best known holiday destinations, huddled between verdant forests and the shores of the wide and breathtakingly beautiful Knysna lagoon. Its most visited attraction is The Heads - the two impressive sandstone peaks standing on either side of the Knysna river mouth. On the shores of the lagoon, just around the corner from the Eastern Head, lies the Under Milkwood Resort.
