Between the lush Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean’s warm waters, Belvidere Manor is found at the water’s edge on the shores of Knysna’s estuary (more often-times called a "lagoon"). Guests here can live the small-town life in this charming Garden Route village, home to the Knysna seahorse, lesser-spotted pansy shells, the Brenton Blue butterfly and the endangered Cape dwarf chameleon.
Just 55 minutes from George airport, the Knysna area is inundated with activities and interesting places to explore. This stunning stop along the Garden Route is a great escape for families, honeymooners, and groups of friends who are looking to enjoy life in the slow lane. With more than 270 bird species to see, indigenous forests, lakes, fynbos, pristine coastlines, mountains and rivers, Knysna and its surroundings are popular with locals and foreigners alike.
Belvidere’s 28 single/double-storey cottages are dotted across ten hectares of garden, each with either a lagoon or garden view. The cottages are fully equipped with all the comforts needed for a tranquil stay. There’s also a fireplace in every living room for those misty and rainy winter nights.
