Peace of Eden Travellers Lodge
Peace of Eden. . .A Forest Dream, beautiful and a little wild, where nature mesmerises and entertains. You will be enchanted as you drive down the forested driveway lined with agapanthus flowers, bamboo and a myriad of exotic tree's and as you pass the giant oak you will be reminded of your childhood fairy tales.
Here you will experience a more natural eco environment and if you love the simple things of life, then our peaceful retreat styled Lodge will enchant you.
We are passionate about people, animals and nature, as a result we are vegetarians and encourage you whilst staying here to explore and embrace the ethos of our non violent lifestyle . . . We offer vegetarian cuisine so you can unwind in style whilst we share our knowledge, menu's and delicious vegetarian meals in the comfort of your Cottage or you can dine 'el fresco' under the boughs of a giant white stinkwood tree.
There are a wonderful variety of unique spaces to stay in, from a little woodcutter Cottage that were once stables for our friendly horses or a spacious converted Barn ideal for family gatherings and workshops, plus a fairy tale double story Cottage that oozes magical charm nestled in a glade of tree's.
For the more adventurous nature lover and the eco green conscious traveler there are simply furnished old style canvas tents on timber decks in the forest with rustic communal timber huts housing a kitchen and ablution facilities.
Whilst here, you can go for early morning walks meandering along winding mossy pathways in our ancient forest where you will hear the rustle of leaves as monkeys scamper along the tops of the tree's, or go and have a lazy afternoon and read a book at the lily pond. Come sunset stroll along to our organic vegetable garden to pick some greens for a healthy meal under a starry African night sky.
You will never be at a loss for what to do, as we are a mere 10 minutes away from some of the most stunning pristine white sandy beaches, the river estuary and lagoon. Close by you can go mountain biking and hiking trails in our mysterious forests where the famous Knsyna elephants still roam freely and we are only an hour away from all the major attractions of the lovely Garden Route which is the safest place in South Africa.
An area so rich in diversity the Garden Route has been declared a national Park and Knysna with its lakes, wild life, birds, forests and friendly folk will no doubt be a high light!
We are also a perfect stop over enroute to Addo National Park, Tsitsikamma and the Wild Coast.
If adventure is what you seek, we can tailor make an itinerary to suit you and offer in house guided forest and Birding walks, Township and Knysna Tours and go as far afield as Addo with our Registered FGASA Nature Site Guide
