    Elephant Hide Guest Lodge

    Stay in one of our private, luxurious, African-themed suites when you visit Knysna and its beautiful lagoon in the heart of South Africa’s unfenced Garden Route National Park.

    Surrounded by nature – mountains, beaches, lakes, the Knysna Forests, the fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom – Knysna is the ideal destination for cycling, birding, golf, walking, surfing, sailing, or just plain loafing. And with its selection of independent restaurants (and being as it is just 30 minutes drive from the Plett Winelands), it’s a fine destination for foodies indeed.

    In fact, it’s a fine destination for families in total. Especially when you factor in accommodation at Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge. Stay with us – and discover what it means to really enjoy a luxury barefoot holiday.
