Get in

By train

The steam train that ran train that runs between George and Knysna via Sedgefield and Wilderness was known as the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe. It was the last-remaining scheduled steam-hauled train service in South Africa. The railway station is just north of town. The route included the Kaaimans River bridge (the most-photographed railway bridge in the world) and the bridge over the Knysna lagoon. Unfortunately the track was closed after flooding in 2006 and 2007, and the service has not been resumed.

By bus
