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.
Comfortable, spacious, and Afro-chic. Perched high on a hill overlooking the Knysna Estuary and the Outeniqua Mountains. Surrounded by indigenous fynbos. Imagine finding yourself eye-to-eye with a buzzard or eagle from your deck or bedroom in one of our Bird’s Eye Suites. That amazing view of the Knysna Lagoon? That’s why we call these rooms our ‘Bird’s Eye Suites’.
Hill-top views of the Knysna Lagoon, luxury, and privacy – our Lagoon Suites are perfect for your honeymoon, holiday, or romantic breakaway.
Enjoy unobstructed views of the Knysna Lagoon and the Outeniqua Mountains from the bedroom, lounge, and deck areas of our Executive Suite. Warmly and tastefully furnished in the earthy colours of Africa, this wood-and-stone cabin is surrounded by indigenous trees that always attract an amazing array of birds.
This beautiful wood-and-stone cabin is hidden in the fynbos – which makes it the perfect spot for nature lovers. How many different species of birds and butterflies can you identify from the luxurious comfort of your king-sized bed?
Spread yourselves out in our spacious Family Suite – with its wide, private wooden deck, and its exquisite views of the Knysna Lagoon, the Outeniqua Mountains, and Knysna’s incredible sunsets.
