    My children and I recently made Blackwaters River Lodge our overnight stop on our way to Witsand. The staff were very friendly and the accommodation excellent. The room was big enough to accommodate all 3 of us comfortably and the chocolate truffles at bed time...More

    I actually do not want to post a favourable review, as I am hesitant to rave about this great family restaurant and do not want to alert everybody to this hidden gem! Spectacular family afternoon! Well worth the visit.

    Good morning! I'd like to find out about your rates? My partner and I would like to have a weekend away and Knysna is the place we thought would be wonderful. Our preferred weekend is Friday 30 December to Sunday the 1st so that would mean a two night stay. Looking forward to hearing from you soon! Best regards
