Peace of Eden Eco Vegan Lodge in Knysna

We are the first totally Vegan/Vegetarian Backpacker in SA ( which means no meat on the property) so be prepared to be a veghead when staying with us. You can go self-cater or eat in with us as we do serve delicious vegan meals, you can also pop down to the beach or river for good local cuisine. We are only  five minutes off the N2, a few minutes before you get to Knysna Town and we are a perfect stop over if travelling up to Addo National Park or the Wild Coast AND a magical base to chill and stay a while whilst exploring the Garden Route, Tsitsikamma & Natures Valley. 

We have a Bali style honesty bar with organic wines and locally brewed beers and serve the most delicious decadent vegan meals. We have had 5 star reviews and our breakfasts are legendary. 

While the wildlife will mostly do the entertaining, you might be lucky enough to arrive whilst some of SA’s top musicians record in our award winning music studio with producer Howard Butcher and during the summer season months you can enjoy our sunset soirées with some awesomely creative, talented singer-song writers. If natures’ more your thing, you can slow down and do yoga or meditate in an enchanting forest glade or on our jetty over the lily pond, then meander along our magical forest walks rounding off your day with cuddling and feeding our retired horses a carrot or two. 

If adventures are what you are looking for, book a guided tour or go on our Ancient Elephant Forest & Mountain Hike with our legendary nature guide. Alternatively we can book you a multitude of adventure activities like sandboarding, kayaking, mountain biking, bungee jumping, paragliding, surfing or any other adventure you wish to experience, all are a mere 10 minutes to an hour away. Book our shuttle to take you from here to anywhere!

Be it a night or a week, if you are a bunny hugger or a nature lover you will love being at Peace of Eden.

These guys are great. Lovely step away from the busy life style. So peaceful here. This place is hidden behind a forrest of trees the owner provided us with accomodation on my last minute request. That is excellent service. The night before i inquired and got a booking. Place was made available and clean. Access to a swimming pond outside and inside fire place. Porch dining area. Cabing sleeps 4. Main bedroom is in the loft with windows all around. Basic essentials are there. Just bring ur own food, maybe movies or a laptop if thats ur thing. This is a real cabing in the woods experience, some wild life in the area aswell. Wifi available.

Its a great area, the garden is beautiful and peaceful, aside from the sounds of regular cars on the road. The forest walk is really awesome. WiFi worked great. Staff were very helpful. The bathroom and kitchen and basically the whole downstairs area of Gwen cottage have a very strong mold smell. Our cottage had a gas heater. They don't seem to weigh the gas cannisters and it ran out after 1 minute in the shower covered in soap. After changing the gas the next shower was hot for half a minute but tricky to find a middle ground between scalding hot and very cold, I accidentally turned the hot tap too low and the flame went out and then it wouldn't ignite after trying about 50 times and changing the batteries in the igniter with some other semi-used batteries (no new ones available). Kitchen Ill equipped.

Absolutely idyllic! So peaceful, beautiful and rejuvenating! We opted for the forest tents, and it's so beautiful to wake up to views of the stunning scenery and birds chirping. Such wonderful and friendly people and the food is amazing! Definitely all round awesome experience, especially if you're looking for a totally blissful break.

Stayed for one night and had no sleep at all.There was a bee hive right above my head that kept buzzing all night long. The main road is close by and there is a continuous sound of traffic. The pillows were really awful too. There is a nice walk in a forest. We were booked to stay in the double story cottage but downgraded to the smaller one as we were travelling with our dogs but we were still charged for the larger cottage. As a vegan place I would have expected the kitchen to be better equipped to prepare veggie food , no colander, no veg knife. The shower was also terrible, I didn't have one as the water never got warm enough as the spout was so high. I didn't want to waste the water either as there is a drought. I won't stay there again there are much nicer places for R850 per night.

"Safari Tents spacious, nice and clean but felt like we were camping in someones garden"

Peace of Eden retreat was very clean and well kept. We went just before the busy season so we were 1 of two couples at the retreat.The accommodation, ablution facilities and kitchen setups were all very nice, but the one thing that did bother us a little bit was that we felt like we were camping in someone's backyard (albeit a big backyard). I suppose it works for some people and that's cool. But I'm afraid we won't be going back there.

review by Vanessa Rossouw, South Africa


After the lovely pictures that we were sent of the cottage, I was very disappointed.Unfortunately the bed wasn't very comfortable and sagged in the middle which we fixed by putting blankets under the mattress. The water was brown, which I feel they could have mentioned on the net. It did not have a pleasant odour to it. The shower bubbled and made strange sounds every time the neighbours showered. The hot plate did not work, but that was replaced for us, but a little too late. Unfortunately, the unit needs some tender loving care before they let it out again. It has a lot of potential as it is a lovely setting.
