About Jembjo’s Knysna Lodge & Backpackers

For a little bit of luxury that is kind on your pocket, our boutique backpacker offers exactly that. Tucked away in the heart of the Garden Route, we take pride in making you feel at home. We are both experienced travellers with a wealth of knowledge in travel and tourism in Africa and as the owners, we know how important a friendly face and a comfortable atmosphere is.

We have a range of accommodation to offer from Dorm Rooms to twin, double or triple and en-suite rooms. We offer basic self-cook complimentary breakfasts, consisting of eggs, toast, fresh fruit, jams, tea and coffee at no extra cost throughout your stay. There is a self-catering kitchen as well as a communal braai area. We also offer free Wi-Fi access.

We are ideally situated a two-minute walk from the Knysna Waterfront, and the bustling little town is a five-minute walk away. We can arrange a number of activities with transportation in and around Knysna, and any way in which we can help you enjoy your stay in Knysna; we are at your service and will do our best to accommodate your requests.

Knysna is South Africa’s best kept secret. It is named in the top 100 places in the world to visit. This quaint, bustling tourist town is home to a huge indigenous population of people of all ages, creeds and cultures.

Today, Knysna boasts an upbeat waterfront full of shops, bars and restaurants with stunning views of The Heads; it is the perfect place for a sundowner on the lagoon which is home to the famous Knysna oysters and seahorses.

                  We loved the garden and the comfy lounge. Blinds in our room broken and so lights from garden made out room very bright at night.

                  Nice place to take a rest during a road trip! It's about 10 minutes walk to the town's center and the BREAKFAST is included which is a really good point! I recommend that backpackers for your quick rest!

                  We would have loved to had our own bathroom or at least a toilet and basin. It was quite an unusual experience to use the bathrombosis and had a stranger walking in.

                  The atmosphere was lovely and the place was very clean.
