About Knysna Elephant Park Lodge

Knysna Elephant Park Lodge affords guests the unique experience of sharing the elephants' accommodation with them. The elephants end their day by heading to their world-class boma for the night where they enjoy some rest and pampering, with a bed of soft sawdust and a mountain of branches to keep them busy munching. The Lodge comprises six rooms that have been built within the boma, each beautifully decorated, with a distinct elephant theme running throughout.

The unique Elephant Lounge forms the central area overlooking the elephants’ sleeping quarters. Here guests are able to relax and watch the elephants enjoying their evening meal, being privy to the elephants' every sound and movement.

What a beautiful setting!!! Was an awesome opportunity to sleep within metres from this majestic animal. Highly recommended.

This was not just a room to sleep - a room which was comfortable, clean, and very well serviced - but it was also a whole exposure to the world of elephants which, whatever your views on these animals, cannot fail to be a profound and moving encounter.

Our family had a wonderful visit! The lodge was a great adventure and educational too. The animals are well cared for and the staff very friendly.
