What a stunning Lodge.  We arrived and we're greeted with smiles.  The lodge is amazing and I could not believe that they charge the rates that they do. It is definitely value for money.

Had a beautiful overnight stay at Blackwaters River Lodge - everything was perfect. The early hearty breakfast kept us going for most of the day. Have recommended your lodge to friends should they need accommodation in the Knysna area. Would definitely stay at the lodge again should we be in the area in the future.
