Customer Reviews

Featherbed is spectacular! I took my (now) fiance out there to propose, and walking through the fynbos and down to the sea caves was the perfect setting. Helen, Joseph and the team went above and beyond for us and we couldn't be more thrilled or grateful. - Dane Kruger

Beautiful scenery. Worth visiting. Lots of fun - Sajeeda Ebrahim

Beautiful experience, with fantastic guides. We did the Featherbed Eco Experience 15 years ago and loved it. We were very pleased to enjoy it even more this time around! A must when in Knysna - Helmien van den Berg

What a great way to see the Heads and the lagoon from a different perspective. Staff were all very friendly, informative, and helpful. Our tour group was very small, but maybe this was because we were there in late summer. - Christopher Xitco

If you ever go to South Africa, this experience is an absolute must... It was amazing, amazing, amazing! - Roy Melamede
