Pumula is an African name for "rest". For lovers of nature, the tranquil parkland atmosphere supports an abundant bird life and over 100 species have been identified to date. The lodge is centrally situated between the town and the famous "Knysna Heads" which allows for easy access to all the attractions in the area.

The lodge has 2 double and 3 twin bedrooms (sleeps 10), all en-suite with private entrances. Each bedroom has its own deck, which overlooks the beautiful gardens and swimming pool, has television, heaters, fans and tea trays. We serve a hearty 'Tree-Top' breakfast amongst the birds and there are barbeque facilities in the garden. In the evening guests can choose from a selection of fine restaurants, which are located within 10 minutes drive.

Although close to the town it is the parkland atmosphere which sets Pumula apart from the other guesthouses in Knysna. The owner is an enthusiastic birder and can advise guests on the best birding spots in the area or even accompany them when possible. The lodge is also situated close to a bird sanctuary.
The beautiful Knysna golf course is only 500 metres from the lodge and a further 6 top golf courses can be visited on day trips, which are within a 70 kilometer radius of the lodge. The owner is also a keen golfer and can assist guests in planning a wonderful golfing holiday.
