Head to the Pick 'n' Pay Knysna Oyster Festival
The Pick 'n' Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is just one of many reasons to visit South Africa's glorious Western Cape.
Held across numerous venues along the famous Garden Route, the event is said to be ideal for people who love their food as well as their sport.
As the name of the ten-day occasion suggests, the primary purpose of the festival is to allow locals and people taking luxury vacations in South Africa to indulge in oysters, which are regarded as a sign of wealth in many countries around the world.
Knysna is a "hot spot" for these highly prized molluscs and up to 200,000 of them are consumed during the festivities.
This year's version will take place between 6th and 15th July and more than 70,000 people are expected to attend in total.
The festival - which was first set up in 1983 in an attempt to attract more tourists to this picturesque part of the country - will also see activities such as golf, bowls, soccer, obstacle courses, mountain biking, theatre shows and cooking demonstrations laid on for visitors.
