Knysna plays host to a number of international festivals each year.... In July hoards of people are drawn to indulge in the annual Oyster festival. September sees the town attract young & old aspiring artists to the Arts Exhibitions. For the more energetic & extreme adrenalin junkies, then May is the time to be in town as the Knysna Speed festival kicks into gear. The Pink Loerie/Mardi Gras festival is also held in May. The Rastafarian community also host the 'Earth festival' which draws Haile Sellasie followers from all over the world.

Our lodge has a warm & welcoming feel... the rooms are chic yet homely.
