We enjoyed our stay at Elephant Hide sooo much! All staff Ellie, Fish and Mandy were so kind and helpful. The room was excellent with a beautiful view over the lagoon. Self catering facilitates would be ideal for people who prefer it. Overall it was a memorable stay and we wouldn't mind going back. Thanks for a wonderful time.

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!

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...
