Cuningham’s Island Guest House, Knysna

Mid-range - ££


The Cuningham’s Island Guest House is the perfect place for travellers exploring the Garden Route. It has seven rooms for visitors and sits on Leisure Isle in Knysna. It’s ideally placed for having a go at the wide range of activities to try in this area: walking, boating, cycling and horse riding to name but a few.

Animal lovers don’t need to go too far to find some of South Africa’s famous creatures, either. The Knysna Elephant Park, Monkeyland and other animal sanctuaries are just a short drive away.

The rooms here are spacious, airy and welcoming. The seven en-suite rooms face the pool or the garden, all you have to decide is which view you prefer. All the rooms have been decorated with accents of warm brown, orange and yellow to give them an earthy, cosy feel. You’ll be very comfortable here.

Wake up to the sound of local sea birds cawing in the wind, then go and explore the rest of this wonderful island.


The hotel serves a delicious breakfast to help set you up for the day’s events. The team is happy to help arrange any activities you want to try during your stay.

Shops, galleries, restaurants and beaches are all close by, as are three of the Garden Route’s top golf courses, so get out and practice your swing!

After a long day, come back and take a dip in the pool. It’s really refreshing and will round your day off nicely.
