About Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge

Situated on top of the Welbedacht Cliff Tops 3km from Knysna Town in the Garden Route, 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.

The lodge is a family run business that prides itself on personal service and ensuring an unforgettable experience for all. Expect to be spoilt by Louise’s cooking who has many illustrious titles to her name, one being a lecturer at the Pru Lieth College of Chefs.

The fifth suite while still enjoying lagoon views is embedded in indigenous “fynbos” surroundings attracting numerous bird species and giving that “hidden away” feeling.

Verified reviewexcellent

Decided to take a well deserved 'Me Time' getaway, The Elephant Hide seemed perfect to relax and chill at. Stunning views of the lagoon, beautiful rooms, jet bath for relaxation, a shower with a view and such friendly staff. I felt totally at ease being on my own. It's really a tranquil getaway, and I will definitely be going back soon!

Verified reviewexcellent

We couldn't have chosen a better place for a romantic long weekend away! The different suites surely all have great views but ours i think was the best as it gave us the feeling we were there all on our own, as nobody could really see us - at least not when we were in the huge bath (thanks for the bubbly to celebrate!) or on our own private deck. Breakfast was a feast on its own with the smoothies being my pesonal favorite! I hope to come back to Knysna often, and Elephant Hide will always be my first choice. Thank you, once again!
