We booked into the Badger's Lodge for three nights as a family of four. The premises are well-kept and show the love for Africa and its plants, decoration and atmosphere. The wooden shacks are well prepared for summer and winter with a cosy oven inside and a braai outside. Having your first coffee in the morning listening to the birds in the forest at your doorstep gives you the feeling of being in the bush, yet Knysna can easily be reached by car within 5 min. time. The pool is a great playground for the kids and it's just around the corner from the lodges - very family-friendly! The family was very personal, their breakfast service and honest bar absolutely wonderful. Hard-boiled and soft-boiled eggs, fried, scrambled, you name it - and they never got the orders mixed up :-) All the best to Kathrin and Joachim and their now three daughters for a happy 2013! Thank you for your service!

- Our beloved Badger's Lodge was destroyed on 7th of June 2017 by the devastating fires that raged along the Garden Route and we are therefore closed for rebuilding. After the initial shock of losing everything in the fire we have started to rebuild and are excited to re-open our Lodge in September 2018. Comfortable accommodation in African style Rondavels (thatched huts), chalets and cottages set in a large tranquil garden. All rooms are en-suite and are decorated in an African theme. English/ continental breakfast. Sparkling pool. Secure off street parking. ... more less
