    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.

Featherbed Eco-Experience including Buffet Lunch

This pristine piece of paradise situated on the Western Head of Knysna is a privately-owned, registered Nature Reserve and a South African Heritage Site. In order to protect the splendour of the natural beauty, access to the reserve is controlled. Visits are only permitted in the company of the reserve's specialist guides.

The Featherbed Nature Reserve offers a Knysna adventure activity not to be missed. The eco-tour begins with a cruise across the Knysna estuary. On arrival at the nature reserve, guests will enjoy a 4x4 Unimog and trailer ride to the top of the Western Head. Here, the optional 2.2 kilometre downhill guided walk will begin, passing through Milkwood forests onto the steep sandstone cliffs, into ancient Khoi-San sea caves and along a scenic coastal path fringed with aromatic fynbos. Your guide will inform you on the fauna, flora and bird life in the reserve. On the coastal walk back, you can often spot the resident Black African Oyster Catcher, one of the rarest coastal birds in South Africa.

The Food Forest Restaurant is situated on the edge of the Lagoon under a canopy of Milkwood trees where we serve the most sumptuous buffet lunch fit for a king.
