About Oyster Creek Lodge
Surrounded by the Knysna Lagoon with a spectacular view of The Heads, this intimate, luxury lodge can sleep up to twelve people and offers a variety of flexible accommodation choices. The lodge is located between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town in the area called the Garden Route of South Africa.
Operating as a bed and breakfast and self-catering facility, the lodge consists of five luxury suites and one self catering unit. All of the lodge’s suites (one twin, two double rooms and one queen and luxury suite) are lagoon facing and open onto the balcony, which includes our loft double bedroom.
All the suites are all ideal for honeymooners, international and local travellers wanting to relax and enjoy the magnificent views of the lagoon. This all adds something special to your ultimate luxury experience and helps to make memories that you will never forget.
The inspiration for the Lodge’s decor is largely drawn from the surrounding natural beauty of the Knysna Forest and is exactly what one would come to expect from our four star Tourism Council and AA Superior accredited lodge.
Spend your evenings lazing around the fireplace or enjoying a traditional South African braai. Our communal lounge area is equipped with a plasma screen TV and DStv for all movie and sports channels. All rooms have TV’s and DStv.
Oyster Creek is known for its genuine South African hospitality. Start off the day with a selection of fresh fruit, yogurts and cereals. Or enjoy a traditional breakfast of bacon, sausage and eggs served with a choice of juices, coffee or tea.
Our well equipped kitchen offers self catering guests all the modern conveniences they could need and serves delicious home cooked breakfasts for our bed and breakfast patrons.
Activities and Attractions

Knysna is home to several championship golf courses, the beautiful scenery of the Knysna Heads and Lagoon, forest elephants and of course, the well known Oyster Festival. Outdoor activities include swimming, bird watching, boating, canoeing, fishing and mountain bike riding, world class restaurants and shops, and viewing the amazing scenery on the many drives.
The Knysna Heads:
Go for a walk along the Heads and see the panoramic views of the town and lagoon. A ferry ride across the Lagoon is a great way to see the Knysna Heads and visit the Featherbed Nature Reserve.
The coast surrounding Knysna has some really beautiful places to visit for the day. Visit Brenton-on-Sea, Buffalo Bay, Bollard Bay on Leisure Isle and the beach and estuary at Noetzie.
Whale and dolphin watching:
The Knysna coastline is home to one of the highest diversity of marine mammals in the world, including whales and dolphins.
Knysna has awesome scenery and what better way to experience it then abseiling the cliffs at the Heads.
Diving along the Knysna coastline is a great experience. Contact a local dive shop for information.
Cycling and mountain biking:
Knysna offers cyclists some great mountain bike trails.
With over 18km² of lagoon and a tidal system of over 1.7m (five feet) Knysna draws sailors from far and wide who enjoy swapping stories at the third oldest yacht club in South Africa, with its most hospitable ‘bar’.
This experience is somewhat of a closer kind than at Kruger or Addo – visitors are allowed to touch and feed the elephants: Harry, Sally and Duma.
Knysna offers breathtaking trails. There are a number of riding schools in the area catering for both the novice and experienced riders. Each school offers its own unique horse riding trail. Choose from forest, coastal, fynbos and mountain trails.
