Knysna Lodges

Knysna Elephant Park Lodge

Built within the elephant sleeping quarters, our Extraordinary Elephant Lodge offers guests the unique opportunity to spend the night with a herd of African elephants. The Parks’ elephants enjoy world-class facilities: during the day they roam the property, but at the end of the day they hurry back to their boma / night camp for a pampered night’s sleep.

Enjoy your elephant sleep-over in unique accommodation overlooking the boma; or spend the evening relaxing in the communal lounge, watching the elephants browse, feed and snooze.

The Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge

Situated on top of the Welbedacht cliff tops 3km from Knysna Town, the Lodge overlooks the Knysna Lagoon and the Outeniqua mountains. The theme of the Lodge is one based on natural beauty with stone and wood architecture combining to give that comfortable earth feel. Four of the suites have magical views onto the Knysna lagoon from every corner of the room. The fifth and sixth suite while still enjoying lagoon views are embedded in indigenous “fynbos” surroundings attracting numerous bird species and giving that “hidden away” feeling. Enjoy a relaxing spa-bath while gazing into infinity. All the suites have double showers with views and are private.
