We visited Elephant Hide by taking advantage of a Daddy's Deals promotion (which didn't include breakfast and it wasn't clear until the day we got there even though we did email the people doing the booking upfront to enquire). The host, Ellion and Fish (and his lovely wife Anna) were very warm and welcoming. He offered to carry our bags... More

We loved our stay at Elephant Hide Guest Lodge! The staff were so accommodating and the room was kitted out with everything we could possibly need. Beautiful views, nice and tucked away location and very comfortable bed. We are looking forward to our return this weekend. Thank you Elephant Hide!

I travel for work and have to stay in many different B&B's and guest houses. I can honestly say that Elephant Hide is the best by far. Not only is everything perfect regarding the room, the view is just incredible too. The attention to detail and the warm hospitality from all the staff just put it one step above the... More

We had a lovely two night stay at Elephant Hide. I must say, the Staff are super friendly and helpful. They do things discreetly and def go the extra mile! Like turning down our bed when we were out. That was a nice surprise for me personally. We also enjoyed our free crunchies! Not to mention the unit upgrade, very... More

My partner and I spent two awesome nights at the Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The view was amazing and the amount of window allowed us to soak it all up. The rooms are very private and you feel as though you are all alone. Would love to go back!

The location, sleep quality cleanliness of rooms was quite good; but the service lacked somewhat. I had to wait for service upon check-in, even had to call while I was waiting for service. Upon attending to me, the gentleman apologised and said he was with other guests; yet when it was my turn to receive the service he was brief... More
