the drive time from cape town to knysna on the N2 is around five hours, to break that journey mid way would have you somewhere near hermanus.
I would suggest an overnight at grootbos, recently acclaimed by tatler as the best family destination in the world. They have superb activities for kids.

Yoou could do a morning trip to see the sharks and whales if you are there during the whale season, before continuing up to Knysna.

We looked into this and did not find any good options. Herminus is not that much closer from Cape Town. Have you thought of just driving straight thru?

In Knysna, we stayed at the Elephant Hide guesthouse and it was very very nice.
