About Peace of Eden

If you love nature, wild magical country side, forests, monkeys, baboons, safety and bird song then Peace of Eden Vegan Backpackers Lodge is where you will want to stay!

This is an eco, vegan and vegetarian backpackers lodge and retreat on the edge of the Knysna Forest, in the heart of the Garden Route. A magical place where we hope to inspire you with our holistic eco lifestyle and where we live alongside nature, so guys, this means no meat cooked by guests at our peace loving lodge.

We offer a variety of affordable units, from a converted barn, to stables and retro canvas tents on timber decks in the forest. You can go self cater or try our delicious 5 star vegan meals. For entertainment of the human kind, enjoy our sunset Soiree's and if feeling a bit more introspective enquire about our next international workshop or retreat.

We are close to Knysna’s famous river estuary, lakes, beaches and forests. All the major attractions of the Garden Route are a mere one to one and a half hours drive away, and we are a perfect halfway stop from Cape Town enroute to Addo Elephant National Park and the Wild Coast. We are 6km from Knysna on the west side, and 8.2km from the N2 along a picturesque country road leading to Rheenendal Village and the historical Millwood Forests.

Verified reviewexcellent

Rest for the soul! We stayed in Deep Forest Tent - secluded in our own private forest. So peaceful with surrounding birdsong and the beauty of creation in it's raw, natural state. The vegan breakfast was mind-blowing (coming from a non-vegan), we look forward to return and try the secret dinner next time!

Verified reviewvery good

This camping is situated 15 min. driving from Knysna. Knysna is nothing special the town is superbusy and there is not much to see. The camping was great, it all looked very primitive but everything worked just fine, the shower was superb. The kitchen is a cabin with a door that must be closed at all times because of the baboons / velvets. We enjoyed our stay here and the people were very friendly.
