The space
Surrounded only by sky, the freshest air, and endless horizons, Alkira Lodge offers guests access to privacy, nature and nurturing for the soul.

A small complement of discrete and well trained staff to take care of your every need and to maintain high standards of hygiene and cleanliness throughout the lodge. Guests can relax and enjoy their stay with confidence.

Offering only 6 rooms and not open to the public, there is plenty of discrete space for everyone and guests can choose whether or not to interact with fellow travelers, to dine in room, privately or in the many inside and outside dining spaces.

Sophisticated contemporary design reflects the breath-taking natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.
High ceilings and large windows and doors that fold away flood interiors with light and accentuate the sweeping views.

Perched on the brow of Knysna's famous Western Head, floating at the feet of the heavens, surrounded by the ever-changing canvas of the Southern African skies and home to abundant bird-life, shy antelope, endangered butterflies and a rich variety of local fauna and rare Fynbos.

Spectacular views of the beautiful Garden Route and the town of Knysna across the hills, the lake, and pristine white beaches all framed by the majestic Outeniqua mountains and the endless horizon beyond.

Easy access to some of the most beautiful, unspoilt, white sand beaches in Southern Africa, wonderful walking from the reserve for all abilities, and an easy 10 to 15 minute drive to access all the local activities and restaurants in the town centre.

Alkira Lodge, features indoor and outdoor dining options, bar, cellar, library, TV rooms, work space and numerous outdoor lounge spaces.

The lodge accommodates a maximum of 12 guests and spacious wooden decks, sunloungers, an infinity pool and hot tub Jacuzzi, gardens and shady verandas provide options to relax, unwind and enjoy the soothing tranquillity and warm sunshine surrounded by nature’s beauty.

The kitchen is not accessible to guests although we do serve delicious breakfast cooked to order and dinner for those who choose to stay in and enjoy drinks overlooking the setting sun.

Beaches, Forests, Mountains, Lakes – the best of the Garden Route on your doorstep!

Easy access to beautiful beaches and wilderness yet just a short drive to local activities, shopping and restaurants.

From Alkira you see in one view, everything that makes the Garden Route so unique; rivers, lakes, mountains, oceans, unique fynbos and ancient indigenous forests, big skies, the stars of the Milky Way sparkling in the Southern night sky above and the twinkling lights of the town of Knysna below.

The accommodation in my collection are part of a service that I provide to friends who have quirky and beautiful 'spaces' that they like to share with travellers looking for a special place to stay on the beautiful Garden Route. Our team understand that to live in Africa means "ubuntu' - we connect with each other knowing we are all members of one human family. We look forward to sharing our homes and this beautiful part of the world with our guests.
