We were very well received by the owners who made our stay very enjoyable and warm. We stayed for 2 nights on our... More

It is perfect for families with young and old children, couples and singles! You can enjoy the quietness, but also having contact with the owner and other... More

Panorama lodge has an exceptionally welcoming and friendly feel – the hosts are excited to share with you their knowledge (and pride) of Knysna and the surrounding area and recommend activities/ hot spots to taste. We instantly felt part of the family and like nothing was too much trouble. The lodge boasts gorgeous (panoramic!) views of the lagoons and is... More
