Situated atop the stunning Welbedacht cliffs, overlooking the glittering Knysna Lagoon, majestic Outeniqua Mountains and lush green indigenous forests of South Africa’s Garden Route, sits the cream of Knysna’s exclusive accommodation: Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge. A mere 3km from the popular bustling waterside town of Knysna, Elephant Hide provides the perfect spot from which to enjoy this delightful part of the country, offering all you could wish for in comfort and hospitality. If your plans are a little grander, with its beautiful views and in-house coordinator, Elephant Hide is a wonderful venue for a picture-perfect wedding.
Family-owned, your hosts at Elephant Hide endeavor to provide each guest with first class comforts in a luxurious and personal offering. The stylishly decorated suites are a haven from which to enjoy beautiful views from your own private deck. Each with a charmingly authentically African feel, the suites have a natural earthy beauty complemented by stone and wooden architecture. Each of the four Luxury Lagoon Suites has its own spa bath overlooking the magical surrounds. Guests can wake up from their king sized bed and enjoy a morning coffee on their private deck drinking in the view.
Couples looking for a particularly romantic hideaway might wish to stay in the lodge’s Fynbos Suite which has been tucked away in a magical fynbos garden attracting hundreds of different birds and butterflies. This exclusive wooded cabin boasts a beautiful spacious bathroom with double shower and a spa bath.
Families are catered for in the lodge’s delightful Family Suite, which sleeps two adults and up to three children extremely comfortably. The Suite has two spacious bedrooms, which are inter-linked, one with a king sized bed, the other with two singles. Finally, there is the Executive Suite, the largest of all the suites with a wall of glass doors the only thing between the room’s raised spa bath and simply the most stunning views.
All guests are invited to enjoy the views from the lodge’s wonderful rim-flow swimming pool overlooking Knysna Lagoon, or, on cooler evenings, the lodge’s cozy fireplace, the perfect spot for a nightcap.
