We had 2 wonderful days at Pumula Lodge. The garden is fantastic, the pool is great and the breakfast is also alright. The owners gladly help with tips on excursions and visits in the area around Knysna as well as restaurant reservations. We can absolutely recommend Pumula Lodge to any traveller.

A big thank you to Rensia & Peter for making our stay at their Lodge both comfortable and relaxing. They simply can't do enough for you and were very helpful in booking Restaurants and advising us what we should do. We originally booked for one night but ended up booking another night, enough said......
