Bamboo Guest House
A Magical Hideaway
Wooden walkways link our hotel guest house in Knysna and meander through our unique gardens – a verdant blend of the Orient, the Temperate Zones and our own Knysna forests walks. Birdlife is prolific and patience will usually be rewarded with some great sightings, including the stunning Knysna Loerie.
For all summer visitors to our Knysna Guest House Accommodation we offer sumptuous breakfasts served on our expansive dining deck and in winter our breakfast room with a roaring log fire. A cold buffet serving of homemade goodies is followed by hot dishes to order, either a full English breakfast or delicious sweet or savoury pancakes. Evening meals are available by prior arrangement – a popular night time choice being a traditional braai or barbecue.
What word or phrase would best describe Bamboo, the Guest House? Relaxed, friendly, unpretentious, quirky, artistic, tranquil, laid back, hospitable, homely, inspirational?…… all of these, in fact, combine to make Bamboo ‘a magical hideaway’.

Face Adrenalin Bungy
|That pretty much sums up why we are doing what we do. How we do that is by keeping everyone safe, treating everyone with respect and helping people have fun! We do all this with a long bungy cord attached to Africa's largest bridge! The view from Africa’s highest bridge captures all the majesty and tranquillity of the Bloukrans River valley. But there is nothing tranquil about throwing yourself more than 200 metres down towards the river below. Read More|
