Given the weather and the duration of my time in Knysna, this will not be a comprehensive travel guide. Still, I can tell you what to do when it's raining and pouring. To begin, Knsyna is a golfer's paradise. I wasn't a golfer at the time and am glad I wasn't because it would've been quite the tragedy to travel all the way there and miss out on a few rounds in golf heaven.
A crafty man, TPOL needed to get from the Western Cape to Mauritius in business. At the same time, he wanted to visit Durban. The problem is that he only had one day to visit Durban and couldn't justify paying or using points for a flight there when he ultimately had fly out of Joburg.
On the way to the Hilton Durban, a comfortable choice in the heart of Durban, I had a chat with the taxi driver. Among other factoids, he told me that Durban has the largest concentration of Indians outside of India. This seemed as random as Sao Paulo having the second largest Japanese population outside of Japan. After learning why so many Indians came to South Africa, I asked the driver about the Indian food in Durban.
I foolishly booked Le Méridien Ile Maurice for one night to save a few points. The next two nights I would be at the idyllic St. Regis Mauritius which was located on the other side of the island and had I taken another taxi would have cost $100.
