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

We enjoyed every single minute in the wonderful reed covered houses and the perfect clean pool. The service and breakfast was excellent, something you are really enjoying straight when getting it and the family atmosphere, topped by very good recommendations from the owners are just making this location to one of the best spots. The garden gives you the impression... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a lovely thatched rondavel attached to main house where delicious breakfast was freshly cooked and served by Katrin. Our room was spacious and clean and contained all we needed, including en-suite bathroom with shower. Even a calorgas heater which we used one night as weather was great in the day, but cold at night at... More

A 5 minute drive to Knysna central, and 2 minutes to the the lagoon, our stay at Badger's Lodge, Knysna was super. The self-catering units are comfortable and well equipped. It is well priced, and the owners are friendly and helpful. The only improvement I would like to see is a comfy couch in the living room, or decent seating... More

We booked into the Badger's Lodge for three nights as a family of four. The premises are well-kept and show the love for Africa and its plants, decoration and atmosphere. The wooden shacks are well prepared for summer and winter with a cosy oven inside and a braai outside. Having your first coffee in the morning listening to the birds... More

we needed a place for an overnight stopover on the Garden Route, and found Badgers Lodge after many days internet searching. It is a wonderful secluded place with swimming pool and plenty of grounds to walk in.

We stayed at badgers lodge for 2 nights, but it was not long enough. Knysna is one place we would love to go back to in South Africa, and we travelled around a lot of the country! The town will only keep you busy for a day but the surroundings offer lots to do, but you will need your own... More
