We decided on a short break from being a mommy and daddy, visiting the coast, having nice coffee and great food. And do some sightseeing in between. We were very lucky we chose Tonquani as our base of operations. Why? Because the staff here pointed us to all the little (and big) gems the area has to offer! Forget "Siri",...

"Do you like good news?" - that's how we were greeted on arrival at Reception. It turned out we'd been upgraded from an ordinary chalet to their enormous, beautiful and nicely quirky honeymoon suite. Tonquani is set on a hillside amid very lush vegetation so it's really peaceful even though you're just a few minutes' drive from the centre of...

This is second time we've stayed here.. after being sent the wrong way by the sat nav, and my husband arguing with it, cause he could vaguely remember where we were going, we arrived at the stunning tonquani lodge.

We found this lodge on TripAdvisor and managed to get a booking on the day (out of season). The wooden cabins are lovely and welcoming. A lot of attention given to details to beautify the living space. All amenities available, good sized swimming pool and facilities to have breakfast inside or out. Easy drive to Knysna

I give this lodge 5 stars for service and care. All employees are attentive and helpful. We also used the couple's massage which was very nice indeed. They have babysitting services and a great breakfast. Yes perhaps the decor is a bit old and run down, but everything else makes up for it. We would definitely recommend this to friends...
