Beautiful quiet Guest lodge, set in pristine fynbos with stunning views of the lagoon. Enjoy bird watching from the comfort of the spa bath. Excellent location, very close to all that Knysna has to offer.

We loved every minute of this private lodge with fantastic views of the Knysna Lagoon. Our room had everything we needed and it ensured that we had a wonderful four day stay! The staff is unseen, yet our room was always clean and turned down for us after we came back from supper. We would definitely visit again and highly recommend this lodge to anyone.

Room Tip: The Lagoon suite (Room #4) - Private and has a wonderful view of the lagoon.

Having spent all day on the road it was a welcome relief to drive up to the elephant Lodge guest house and to be greeted by friendly willing staff who even carried our bags to a room that exceeded our expectations. As we were too tired to go out they organized a take away from the local pizza place. We can highly recommend the Lodge. Stunning views clean and very well kept, the breakfast was perfect and the bathrooms have underfloor heating 

We drove into the resort to check if we could find accommodation for one night on the way to Plettenberg Bay. We ended up staying two nights! That's how much we loved the place. The wooden cabins are beautifully done and the rooms are fitted with everything that one can find in a starred hotel - mini fridge, tea/coffee counter, safe etc. The view from the room, the sit-out deck and the bathroom are stunning to say the least. Even while you're lying on the jacuzzi, one can see the expanse of the bay! Ryan, the owner is a great guy and very helpful if you were to ask him for suggestions. We are glad we found this little piece of paradise almost by accident. Shall recommend heavily for couples on vacation or honeymoon.

Room Tip: We had Cabin Number 1 which had a panoramic view of the bay from everywhere.
