About Cape Explorers Lodge

Small owner-run B & B in Hunters Home, a quiet suburb halfway between Knysna town and The Heads.

Please note that we do not take children under 10 years of age.

We offer 3 en-suite rooms with private access from an elevated deck with magnificent views of the forested valley towards the lagoon and the Heads. Guests can utilize the safe parking and braai facilities on the property. Our self-service breakfast consist of fruit juice, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, cereals, eggs, bacon/sausage, mushrooms/tomato, toast, filter coffee and a variety of teas.

The lodge is set in an indigenous garden which attracts a variety of bird life. We also have a separate guest lounge with full DSTV, info centre and an extensive ‘explorers’ library. We can help you plan your activities and trips in the area and provide advice on restaurants. We are also within close proximity to Knysna, the Pezula and Sparrebosch golf courses, and the Life Knysna Private Hospital.

              We had a nice stay at Cape Explorers. Everything was exactly what to expect from the information on the website. Clean and cosy. Thank you for hosting us.

              We had a great time. Very friendly people, who went the extra mile for us and stayed up late waiting for us to arrive. The lodge is beautiful and breakfast was great. Thank you Liezel and George for giving us your best! Damion and Moirlet Burger

              Liesel welcomed us heartily and we had everything we needed. My husband loved the coconut cookies and the hot chocolate was lovely. Everything was neat and comfortable.  Liesel was very accomodating and said I could still come and shower after the half marathon even though she knew that it was going to be well after 10:00.
