“Most amazing stay!”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

We stayed here for a week for our Honymoon and Mandy and Ryan were absolutely wonderful! The place is beautiful, it's neat and well looked after and the food was incredible! It was money well spent and we will definitely try to be back as soon as we can! Thanks for a great time, keep up the great work! xx

We loved our stay at Elephant Hide especially the baths with views over the lake, and the breakfasts the best weve had on our travels. It was very romantic and will be sure to go back.

Room Tip: Try and book a Lagoon Room

We had a wonderful stay at Elephant Hide, the rooms were well designed with lovely views from the spa bath and the main bedroom. Fish looked after our every need and the breakfasts way better than imagined.

As a seasoned traveller throughout SA, rarely does 1 come across a boutique lodge offering value, great friendly service ( owner run ) ulti luxury with the most amazing setting. By far and away the best lodge on the entire Garden Route

We stayed for 2 nights and found Elephant Hide Lodge to be a real treat, the rooms are spacious with all the mod cons and wonderful spa bath that looks over the lagoon.
Thank you to Fish and Mandy for making our holiday one to remember.

Absolutely the most unforgettable experience, where personal, friendly attention meets a most magnificent setting. The only reason to leave your luxurious suite is the delicious breakfast that is served while looking out towards the Knysna heads. Unbeatable!
