My friends and i can't stop talking about the place and our stay there. The cabin itself is so beautiful, clean and well looked after. The beautiful view and sight when waking up in the morning is out of this world. We will surely come back for a longer stay 😃

What a wonderful and peaceful place! Magnificent views! We stayed at Kings Gift cabin and everything was neat and clean and in a working condition. The cabin is very private. It is just you and nature. The silence was very nice. You only hear the wind through the treetops and the birds. Truely The Kings Gift!

We booked the Lulama cabin for 5 nights. Everything was immaculate, the cabins really well equipped with anything that is needed. Very secluded with excellent privacy, but beautiful views from most of the cabin.

This experience was one of those that you will remember for the rest of your life. We planned this long weekend getaway with friends of ours that's working overseas. From the moment I inquired about Cabin 16 Vanessa from Absolute Getaway was extremely helpful in assisting with making the booking. The Cabins are secluded from each over and you don't...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Great accommodation just out of Knysna. Hidden well in the forest, there is a mystical feeling towards this accommodation. Amazing views!! Definitely something to go back to. What we did not realize upfront is that the Lulama lodge does not have a pool, whilst the others do have; we will for next time.
