Can highly recommend this beautiful lodge in Knysna. Set in beautiful natural surroundings filled with life. Thanks to Rensia for such a warm welcoming. Room lacked nothing and lovely deck to sit outside on and just take in the Peace and quiet and watch the birds. Can highly recommend this lovely Lodge.

We stayed for two weeks at the lodge in December and was it very enjoyable. Our room was very neat and clean with everything we needed. The balcony was quite big and comfortable where we could relax while looking out on their beautiful garden. Rensia was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again if in Knysna.

Many times when we've stayed at a guest house, we've wished there were a kitchenette or something where you could "eat in" without trying to balance food on your laps on the bed. Pumula lodge has it all. Well thought out to cover every need you may have. Beautiful gardens and lounge for guests to use. Inviting and open -...

“Room 5 is a great room because it has a bath as well as a shower and it has windows on the side, in addition to the front and the rear. The double bed is a little soft so we did not have a great night's sleep.”
