My wife and I stayed just one night here as we were travelling through Knysna. Based on our experience one night at this delightful lodge is just not enough. What is not to like! Firstly the welcome you get is warm but not overbearing. The lodge we were in was spacious and set in lovely grounds (a bush experience within... More

Badger's Lodge is a great base in Knysna. My husband and I sadly only stayed for one night. It is beautifully decorated, with some of the furniture made by the owner, Joachim. He is also a great host, who gave inside info on where to do and what to see in Knysna. If I'm ever back in Knysna, I'd come... More

The most disappointing part of staying at Badger's Lodge was that we were only there for one night........This accomodation is set in a stunning part of Knysna and the grounds, plants and gardens were exceptionally well kept. Not only do the owners look after the gardens but the rooms are spacious, clean and well looked after. Great swimming pool and... More

I was glad that I had chosen to overnight in one of the cottages. This establishment is in a quiet residential area and one can easily imagine you are in an isolated forest setting. The cottage is tastefully decorated in an African theme and it is fully equipped with high-quality equipment. This is ideal for a comfortable stay after a... More

Stayed at the badgers lodge for two nights. Beautifull location, clean and well maintained. Wonderfull wall decorations inside the rondavals, lovely breakfast and great housesitters at the moment of our stay while the owners had their holiday. Would love to come here again and would highly recomment this place if you stay in Knysna.

Clean rooms, good and rich breakfast, lovely and friendly owners. You will never regret choosing this place. The swimming pool is big enough to accommodate users comfortably and is very well kept. The hotel is immersed in a garden with beatiful trees all around the chalets.
