We had 2 wonderful days at Pumula Lodge. The garden is fantastic, the pool is great and the breakfast is also alright. The owners gladly help with tips on excursions and visits in the area around Knysna as well as restaurant reservations. We can absolutely recommend Pumula Lodge to any traveller.

A big thank you to Rensia & Peter for making our stay at their Lodge both comfortable and relaxing. They simply can't do enough for you and were very helpful in booking Restaurants and advising us what we should do.

“Room 5 is a great room because it has a bath as well as a shower and it has windows on the side, in addition to the front and the rear. The double bed is a little soft so we did not have a great night's sleep.”
