We were spoilt with a Daddy's deal for two nights and extended ourselves with an extra night. Rooms very tasteful, views indescribable and attention from staff exemplary. Breakfast by arrangement at an extra cost but only 3 minutes from central Knysna - so much to do, so little time.

Arriving quite late, we were warmly welcomed by Fish! ; ) Our accommodation was incredible and spacious and the morning and evening view of the lake was spectacular. The huge bath/Jacuzzi in the bathroom also has a view and being on honeymoon made it so much more romantic and relaxing! Would definitely visit again!!

Our stay was great. Excellent views from the top. We pass Knysna for more than 25 years and never knew that there are so nice places in Knysna. We recommend this place to everyone that would like to go to Knysna.

The one gentleman "Fish" was mostly our caretaker for the few days and we got all the help and information needed. The Rooms are fantastic with one... More

We went to Knysna for a friends wedding and was lucky enough to find out about this little Gem. hidden away on the hills of Knysna with amazing views of the lagoon without the noise of places closer to the N2. It was quiet and peacefull. The room which has a large picture frame window with comfy chairs to enjoy... More

We were on our way back from a long trip over Southern Africa and booked the Elephant Hide of Knysna a bit by chance really, we had never been but liked the look of it and its location high up in the mountain. We were absolutely stunned by the room and the view. We were in Cabin 2 which is... More

We visited Elephant Hide on 2 rainy days. The rooms were just beautiful with everything you needed to keep warm and comfy. We got the best service and even got our take away food brought to our rooms. I would defenitely recommend this to anyone wanting to relax and be spoilt.
