About Pumula Lodge

In the heart of the Garden Route, nestled between the quaint town of Knysna and the famous Knysna Heads, lies Pumula Lodge - “the place of rest”. And that is exactly what the visitor will find when entering the gates of Pumula.

The lodge, with its tranquil, parkland setting is the ideal place for local and overseas visitors alike. At Pumula you can get away from the hustle and bustle. It is difficult to imagine that you are only five minutes away from the centre of town. Yet, the location allows for easy access to the many attractions in the area: from playing golf at one of the many world-class courses, to dining out, or if you’re feeling adventurous, hiking on one of the many trails in the area. The range of activities is extensive.


Pumula Lodge has five beautifully finished and comfortable 2.85 x 3.30 metre bedrooms.
Guests can enjoy a stay in one of the following:

• 3 x twin bedded rooms which is two single beds (2 x 1.9 x 0.90 metres) that are pushed together with en-suite shower
• 1 x double-bedded room (normal double bed - 1,9 x 1.4 metres) with en-suite shower
• 1 x double-bedded room (normal double bed - 1,9 x 1.4 metres) with full bathroom (bath and shower)

All rooms have a private balcony overlooking the garden and sparkling pool, a television, heating / cooling, as well as tea trays. In the utility room, guests are welcome to use the communal kitchenette which consists of a microwave, kitchen basin, fridge, cutlery and crockery.

Wake up to the twittering sound of birds, take a stroll through the garden with the resident guinea-fowl family going about their daily routine, relax next to the sparkling pool, enjoy a barbecue or sit on your own private balcony, sipping coffee or a sundowner. At Pumula, your time is your own and true relaxation is the order of the day.
