We felt so welcome during our stay at badgers Lodge. The Katrin & Joachim went out of there way to assist us in whatever we needed, which included advice on the activities around Knysna. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay there longer. The Rustic from the outside Chalet that we stayed in was very modern inside with everything... More

The friendly welcome we received from Katrin & Joachim set the stage for a very comfortable visit. They were flexible and helpful giving us tips on what to do next. The breakfast was great the environment they have created is good for unwinding. We would like to visit them again on our next trip to the region.

Thank you, Kathrin, for two lovely days at your guest house. Our cottage, which you described as simple, had everything we wanted. It is very clean, spacious, well equipped and with nice views into your pretty garden. We regret that we hadn't the time to use our terrace with braai or your inviting pool - there is so much to...

The place is clean and comfy, it was beyond what we expected. The backyard is basically a breathtaking jungle. The pool area is great but unfortunately the weather was not in our favor. The hospitality is excellent. Badgers Lodge is a great place to stay for those who are travelling on a budget and an excellent venue for absolute relaxation.... More
