Pack for a Purpose KnysnaAt the Knysna Country House we feel it is not only important to look after our guests, but also after our staff, our environment and our surrounding communities.  Some of the projects we are involved in are part of the Pack for a Purpose initiative of like minded accommodation establishments and tour operators.  You will recognize these projects through the Pack for a Purpose logo.

We find most of our guests care as much as we do, and would like to get involved where possible.  Here’s what we do, and how you can help:


  • Have enjoyed hospitality, great service and quality for the third time in a row!  Erik and Ypie arranged for us (...) golf (...) which was an unforgettable experience.  The pool in the beautiful garden was heaven on earth!

  • (...) Die ganze Anlage (Garten, Terrasse, Pool etc.) ist sehr schön und sehr gepflegt.  Das Frühstück war superlecker, vielfältig und sehr reichlich. Die Gastgeber Ypie und Erik sind super nett (...)

  • (...) We couldn't have chosen a more convenient and comfortable venue than the Knysna Country House. Lovely swimming pool. Large generous breakfasts with delightful and attentive staff. Also a very beautiful and peaceful location. (...)
