Our stay was characterized by a perfect service.The rooms were absolutely clean, they were made every day and no detail was left out. Tidiness and order were all around. The location was beautiful, the centre near by car, plenty of services available in the city of Knysna. We absolutely loved the breakfast, rich in a variety of choice you do... More

Our room was clean, the grounds very nice and breakfast very good. Katrin was able to help us plan our time in the area, which turned out perfect. I... More

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.

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.

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
