Pumula Lodge


Pumula is an African name for ‘rest’. For lovers of nature, the tranquil parkland atmosphere supports an abundant bird life and over 100 species have been identified to date. Pumula Lodge is centrally situated between the village and the famous ‘Knysna Heads’ which allows for easy access to all the attractions in the area.

The lodge has two double and three twin bedrooms, all en-suite with private entrances. Each bedroom has its own private deck, which overlooks the beautiful gardens, and has television, heaters, fans and tea trays.

We serve a hearty ‘Tree-Top’ breakfast amongst the birds and there is a barbeque facility in the garden. In the evening guests can choose from a selection of fine restaurants, which are located within 10 minutes drive.
