You can choose to stay in little woodcutter cottages that were once stables for our friendly horses or in a spacious converted barn, ideal for family gatherings and retreats, plus a quaint double-storey cottage among a glade of trees that oozes magical charm.

For the more adventurous nature-lover or the eco green conscious traveller, there are simply furnished forest-safari style tents on timber decks in the forest with rustic communal timber huts housing a kitchen and ablution facilities.

While you are here, you can go for early morning walks meandering along winding mossy pathways in our ancient forest where you will hear the rustle of leaves as monkeys scamper along the tops of the trees. You can also have a lazy afternoon with a book at the lotus lily pond set in our park-like gardens alive with bird songs. While dozing under an azure-blue sky you may see the shy emerald green Knysna loerie fly by, and at sunset you can stroll along to our organic vegetable garden to pick some greens for a healthy meal under a starry African night sky.

If you love nature and want to experience a more natural eco environment and don’t need luxuries to enjoy your stay, then you will find Peace of Eden enchanting.

We also have a recording studio where many well-known South African musicians have recorded their award-winning albums, and you may just be lucky enough to be visiting when we have impromptu sunset soiree evenings where you could be entertained by some of our great singers and song-writer guitarists like Nate Maingard, Gary Thomas and blues maestro Dan Patlansky.

We are 15 minutes from Knysna and only 8 km from the N2, on the pretty country road that leads to the Rheenendal village. Beyond the village is a turn-off to the Goudveld Forests, Jubilee Creek, and the historical Millwood Goldmines where you may come across signs of the illusive Knysna elephants that still roam freely in the depths of the vast mysterious Knysna forests.

Our beautiful white, sandy beaches of Buffalo Bay and Brenton on Sea and the Knysna river estuary are a mere ten minute drive away and we are an hour's drive from most of the famous attractions and adventure activities of the Garden Route. The Garden Route it now a national park and one of the safest and most beautiful places in South Africa.

If you are just passing through we are a perfect stopover en route to Addo National Park, the Eastern Cape coastline and the Wild Coast. We have a registered nature guide and offer guided forest and bird walks, township and Knysna tours, and go as far afield as Addo Elephant National Park.

Knysna South Africa

Knysna Bed and Breakfast Accommodation

If there is such a thing, Knysna is the heart of the Garden Route. This medium-sized town on the banks of the usually placid and always beautiful Knysna Lagoon is a real tourist haven. The lagoon, which is guarded from the sea by two enormous, rugged, sandstone cliffs, known as The Heads, is a fabulous playground as well as being the source of the cultivated oysters for which Knysna is famed.

The Eastern Head is quite developed with houses, guest houses, a dive shop and a restaurant in the most spectacular position. The Western Head, which is reached by scenic boat trip or a short paddle, is a private nature reserve with less physical infrastructure but loads of tourist activities. Tractor tours, abseiling and quad bike tours are all on offer, and there is a restaurant with a view to rival the one on the Eastern Head.

There is excellent diving in Knysna, both in the lagoon and outside in the open sea. One of the more interesting dives, a wreck right in the channel in The Heads, is only to be explored at slack tide, and then by relatively strong divers.

The N2 runs through the town in a freakishly narrow two-lane road that, at peak holiday times, creates traffic jams of note. Other than that, though, Knysna is mega-laid back.
It’s surrounded by wonderful indigenous forests with historical gold mines to explore, wonderful hikes and some of the most fabulous mountain biking in the world. No exaggeration. The ubiquitous Knysna loerie is a beautiful green and red bird that hides out in the forest, occasionally showing its scarlet underwings as it takes flight. Even more elusive and beautiful is the iconic Narina trogon, which is spotted relatively often.

Although there are no real beaches actually within the town, the nearby Noetzie and Brenton Beaches are spectacular. Brenton, in particular, is a great beach for walking as it stretches 6km to Buffalo Bay, where a wonderful horse trail operator offers the exhilarating experience of cantering along the beach with the wind in your hair. The surfing is good, too.

Knysna has two awesome golfing estates, one on the Western Head on a cliff high above the crashing Atlantic and another deeper in the mountains with views over the lagoon and ocean. The public Knysna Golf Club also has a more than reasonable course and there’s even a mashie course for a real quick fix, so keen golfers will never get bored. And – as Knysna is such a gorgeous place – the partners and families of golfers won’t get bored, either.

Knysna is filled with creative crafters, talented artists and skilled artisans of all types so there are mega opportunities for retail therapy. Lots of live music venues, great restaurants and South Africa’s first micro-brewery all contribute to the sybaritic nature of the town. In July, the Knysna Oyster Festival is a celebration of seafood, wine and far more active pleasures, with a wonderful mountain bike race, a forest marathon and loads of other activities.
Towards the end of May, the Pink Loerie Festival is a bird of a somewhat different feather. Although it’s primarily a gay festival, with outrageous costumes and wild parties, it’s enjoyed as much by straight (some surprisingly so) locals and visitors.
