The Drifters Knysna Lodge is located on the picturesque Knysna Lagoon, with a stunning view down the river toward the iconic Knysna Heads that guard the entrance to the Indian Ocean. The Cape Cod style Lodge is within easy walking distance of the quaint, bustling town center and the vibrant Knysna Waterfront complex.
We provide the ideal base from which to explore the many splendours of the town, as well as the greater Garden Route. Or then again, you can choose to simply relax and soak up the laid-back atmosphere of the town and lagoon. The Drifters Knysna Lodge is suitable for both stop overs and for those wishing to enjoy a relaxed holiday.


We offer a choice of Single, Double or Queen size beds in our 15 well appointed rooms – all with exquisite lagoon/sea views. All rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, are elegantly decorated and offer coffee and tea facilities.


We offer the option of a full English or Continental Breakfast in our breakfast area. Knysna is also a gourmet's delight, with options to tempt anyone's palate - with an oyster feast a must for everyone!
