    Built in 1998, the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel embodies an "indigenous" concept that combines the character and the spirit of the surrounding indigenous forests with Knysna's romantic history. On entering the lobby of one of the largest log structures in the Southern Hemisphere, exquisitely carved solid Yellow wood trunks tower upwards to the magnificent Scandinavian hammer trusses.

    Rays of sunshine flooding through the spectacular stained glass windows, illuminate the splendid solid Yellowwood staircase. The autumn hues of the slate flooring and the extensive use of natural river stone combine with the wood to create an atmosphere of tranquil balance. Truly "in tune with nature"

    The Knysna Log-Inn Hotel is very centrally located in the middle of town and ideally situated for sight-seeing. The Hotel is within easy walking distance to the Knysna Quays (better known as the Knysna Waterfront) - just 200m away, as are the ferries to the Heads.

    The Phantom Forest Eco Reserve, on the southern Cape coast of South Africa, in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route whispers a very special magic. Privately owned within 137 hectares of nature reserve on the Knysna River, The Phantom Forest offers a unique bio-diversity of Afromontane forest, Cape coastal fynbos and estuarine wetland. There are over 150 bird species, bush pig, bushbuck, grysbok, the rare blue duiker (one of Africa's smallest antelope), and a variety of smaller game. Emphasis is placed on the use of sustainable methods of construction. Alien vegetation, gleaned directly from our eco-restoration program, has been utilized in floors, furniture, roofs and boardwalks. Drawing inspiration directly from nature, a harmonious balance has been created, from ragged thatch rising into the forest canopy, to wood shingle and a 'freshwater' nature pool. In true eco-terms, man's intrusion in our wonderful natural environment has been graciously accepted by both flora and fauna.
