Our Most Popular Garden Route Accommodation
Lily Pond Country Lodge
Lily Pond Country Lodge is on the Garden Route. Set in 12 hectares of gardens and yellowwood forest. These large, evergreen conifers are the national tree of South Africa. Respect. And no surprise, the lodge is on the edge of Tsitsikamma National Park. A total stunner. All coast, reefs, rivers, forests. A hiking and water sports mecca.
With a sublime location, deep in the forest and bordered by an estuary, the sea and forested mountains, Tranquillity Lodge is an enchanting escape into a nature-lover's paradise.
With world class levels of luxury and service, Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa occupies the eastern head of the Knysna Lagoon on South Africa's beautiful Garden Route.
De Denne Guest House
Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
Whale Rock Lodge
Talk about manicured lawns, a faultless facade and an impeccable appearance, with not a thing out of place, and you’re clearly describing Whale Rock Lodge in Hermanus. With service to suit and luxury touches throughout, this lodge exceeds all expectations.
Villa Afrikana Guest Suites
Five-star hotel accommodation in Knysna without the five-star price, Villa Afrikana Guest Suites is a clever combination of boutique hotel and family-run guesthouse.
Tsala Treetop Lodge
Tsala Treetop Lodge is a modern luxury lodge built at canopy level in an indigenous forest near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. Accommodation consists of enormous en suite 'tree houses' connected by elevated walkways.
Surval Boutique Olive Estate
Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

Super sand. So much super it’ll make ya cry.
