Panorama Lodge is a fine place to stay at and the view from here is fantastic. The rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast was very good and the owners were very helpful. We will certainly return back the next time we visit Knysna.

We spent only one night at Panorama Lodge and we had a tremendous experience! Our host welcomed us so kindly and took time to explain us all the cool and informative stories about the region.

The German owner/host (Dieter) is very welcoming and full of information about things to do in the area. Dieter is always happy to sit down and share his deep knowledge about various topics with his guests. Breakfast is served on the veranda (weather permitting) overlooking lots of attractive landscape. Quite outstanding location!
