Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge is 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.

Champagne and oysters, sunset cruises and sundowners on the deck around the swimming pool are a few of the experiences to look forward to.

Over 60 restaurants to choose from which we will gladly book for you or if perhaps you prefer to stay in, we have a few restaurants which will provide a up market take- away which we can serve in your room or in the main dinning area.

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.
