Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest House


Situated on top of the Welbedacht Cliff Tops 3km from Knysna Town, 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. Four of the suites have magical views onto the Knysna lagoon from every corner of the room.

The fifth suite while still enjoying lagoon views is embedded in indigenous “fynbos” surroundings attracting numerous bird species and giving that “hidden away” feeling. Enjoy a relaxing spa-bath while gazing into infinity. All the suites have double showers with views and are private.

The lodge is a family run business that prides itself on personal service and ensuring an unforgettable experience for all.
