We recently had the pleasure of staying at Pelican Lodge in Sedgefield. From the moment that we submitted an enquiry on the website, owner and host, Ian Perryman responded promptly in a professional and efficient manner.
Booking and confirmation was seamless, and when we arrived after a 15 hour drive from Durban, we were warmly welcomed by Ian.
The room was very comfortable, with sufficient cupboard space, keypad safe, modern bathroom, comfortable bed and our own balcony with a view of the forest and Sedgefield. The room has a coffee / tea station, and the most divine home-made rusks.
Breakfast was a delight. We chose a table outside, and sitting comfortably under the generous umbrellas, we enjoyed a mouth-watering breakfast, made from fresh, quality ingredients. The staff are friendly and make you feel right at home in the beautiful surroundings Pelican has to offer.
Pelican Lodge also supports local community upliftment programs, such as mosaic workshops and career guidance & education of the scholars of a nearby settlement.
The lodge is located 5 minutes drive away from the lagoon, river mouth & beach.
Nestled between Knysna and George, we were able to enjoy the best of both areas. We took short daytrips, and the abundance of activities, markets, beaches and restaurants kept us busy all day long. Areas that we visited: Tsitsikama Forest, Storms River, Knysna, Buffalo Bay, Wilderness, Dolphin Point, George, Glentana, Klein Brak, Mosselbay.
Ian was a fantastic host, with great attention paid to detail (one evening it was raining, so we decided to watch movies in the room, and Ian delivered fresh popcorn for us to enjoy while watching the movie)
Our stay was a real pleasure, and we look forward to returning in December 2013!!!
