I stayed at Elephant Hide for two nights during my ten day trip to South Africa. Elephant Hide is a perfect location offering a lovely view of the Knysna coastline from the deck of my room and privacy (for a honeymoon couple).

Knysna (thanks to the owner of Elephant Hide) also gave me an opportunity to Sky Dive. It was nice of the owner to guide me on the "Things to do" during my short (two day) stay in Knsyna covering a lot of things without it getting hectic.

Since I was scheduled for a 4 AM check out (early flight from Cape Town) they hotel staff packed a small breakfast meal for us which was quite considerate on their part.
