Pleasantly surprized when we were upgraded on arrival. Friendly & attentive staff. Great views & birdlife Close enough to central Knysna to pop in and out without any hassel Suite perfectly suited for a couple

We loved how hidden away the lodge is. It was such a surprise to discover the privacy of each cabin with large bay windows looking over beautiful, natural gardens with breathtakingly stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon!

Amazing accommodation with the most comfortable bed and a really beautiful view. Our huge room was perfectly positioned with all that we could need. We took advantage of all that the accommodation had to offer and really enjoyed ourselves. On top of the incredible accommodation the people were very nice. We were welcomed by Fish, who was very friendly and... More

This is one of the most beautiful spots in Knysna overlooking the lagoon. Our chalet was luxurious with everything we needed. It was glorious to soak in the spa bath by candle light, fantastic to both be able to jump into the double shower after a run along the lagoon edge and breath-taking to sit on the wooden deck watching...

This guest lodge is simply amazing. The view is breathtaking and the tranquil atmosphere is just perfect for a relaxing break away and it is not that far from Knysna central. Sunsets here are amazing and so is the service. When we checked out we realized that they even washed our car. Excellent!

The pictures of Elephant hide do not do it justice; this is by far one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. The view of the lagoon is breath taking, sunrises behind you so you can sleep in but the sunset’s right before your eyes warming up the room with bright reds and oranges. This place was designed...

The breakfast was as delicious as it was plentiful and we looked forward to it every morning. The staff were caring, approachable, knowledgeable of the area and most of all happy. Shout out to ma boi Fish. The bunnies in the car park were an elegant touch. We had the most amazing bed and bath and the views from our... More
