We spent one night at the Knysna Elephant Park in April 2014. We literally slept with the elephants in fantastic rooms overlooking the elephant enclosure. Sally and her gang were a little restless and noisy at night but you really did feel at one with the elephants through the experience. We were treated royally with personal walks with the elephants...

We spent a night at the Knynsa Elephant Park Lodge. What unique experience! Where else can you sleep in the same building as the elephants. Our room was great, just as you'd want it. Small kitchen if you wanted to self cater, we didn't. Everything else was just as you'd hope. The lounge area was great, it overlooked the elephants...

What a wonderful experience and a great way to meet and learn about the elephants before going off on safari. Staff were friendly and knowledgable. The room was a higher standard than expected; the luxury rooms were booked and we were told that ours would be more basic. The communal area was comfortable and a great place to see the...

What can I say I was hoping this was going to be an amazing experience for me and it was. The room and communal lounge was lovely seeing the elephants was amazing and I have to say it was not very smelly. It was a little bit noisy in the night but the rooms were well back so there was...

We stayed at the Knysna Elephant Park for two nights in a luxury room. The accommodation is of a high standard - quality furnishings and lovely finishes. We were very pleased with the accommodation as soon as we stepped into the room. Even the standard rooms are great. Our room came with a private jacuzzi and was very spacious and...

We stayed at this lodge incidentally and never regretted it! Really the authentic african feeling if you do not have the time to visit Addo or one of the other parks! It was lovely to do the morning walk with the elephants before the other tourists arrived! We also had supper at the lodge, which we had to order before...

We went and stayed for one night last week and it was a great stay. We were in room 4, one of the cheaper ones, but it didn't feel cheap at all. It was very spacious, nicely decorated, chololate on the pillows etc. Anything more luxurious wouldn't really feel like staying with the elephants. The view over the sleeping quarters...

My boyfriend took me to Knysna Elephant Park last april without telling me in advance what we were going to do there. We've spent the night in the Deluxe room, with a view over the elephants' "bedroom". Amazing !!! We could watch them eat and then hear them during the night. The room was beautiful and spacious, service excellent. And...
