Amanzi Island Lodge - Knysna ****

Amanzi Island Lodge is a bed and breakfast guesthouse situated on the beautiful Leisure Isle in Knysna. Linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway the lodge enjoys wonderful views of the Knysna lagoon.


Accommodation is provided in 5 lagoon-facing rooms that overlook the lagoon and one garden-facing room with views towards the northern Knysna hills. There is also one self-catering garden-facing apartment available for those who would rather not eat out every night.


A scrumptious breakfast is served on the terrace each morning while you watch the tides slowly turn beneath the majestic Knysna Heads. Then head out to explore the many activities that Knysna and the Garden Route have to offer or simply relax around Leisure Isle. There are many restaurants to choose from in the area, and after dinner, return to the cosy lounge at the lodge for drinks from the Honesty Bar.


  • Inter-leading rooms or the self contained apartment can inter-lead with 1 or 2 rooms to provide accommodation for 4 or 6 guests
  • Canoes available to take out and paddle in the lagoon
  • Safe, sandy beach literally on the doorstep when the tide goes out
  • Bikes available for safe riding around Leisure Isle
  • Swimming pool
