I travel for work and have to stay in many different B&B's and guest houses. I can honestly say that Elephant Hide is the best by far.

My partner and I spent two awesome nights at the Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The view was amazing and the amount of window allowed us to soak it all up. The rooms are very private and you feel as though you are all alone. Would love to go back!

The location, sleep quality cleanliness of rooms was quite good; but the service lacked somewhat. I had to wait for service upon check-in, even had to call while I was waiting for service. Upon attending to me, the gentleman apologised and said he was with other guests; yet when it was my turn to receive the service he was brief...
