Kanonkop House

A luxurious guesthouse gloriously situated on the Apex of the Picturesque Kanonkop Hill in Knysna

The spirit of Kanonkop House

The spectacular Kanonkop House commands a breathtakingly beautiful vista of the Knysna Lagoon, stretching all the way to the famous Knysna Heads. Beautifully-furnished suites include air-conditioning, underfloor heating, spacious bedrooms, well-appointed bathrooms, satellite television, Wi-Fi and sweeping views over the stunning surroundings. After a peaceful night’s slumber in the sumptuous beds, guests can tuck into scrumptious breakfasts served under umbrellas on the sunny patio or in the elegant dining room. A sparkling swimming pool dotted with comfortable loungers provides an idyllic setting for guests to unwind, whilst a well-stocked bar is the perfect spot to relax with refreshing drinks. Adventurous guests can get their thrills from lagoon fishing trips, hiking, water skiing, wake boarding, canoeing and cycling. Those in search of something more leisurely can take gentle strolls through Knysna’s magnificent ancient forests, visit the lagoon’s magnificent estuary, enjoy a spot of whale-watching or explore the nearby secluded beaches.

What we love about Kanonkop House

  • Birdwatchers will be captivated by the lovely loeries, the iridescent sunbirds and the homely wagtails that inhabit the indigenous forest on the lodge grounds.
  • Explore the sinuous waterways in one of the guest house’s single or double canoes, stopping to feast on a delicious picnic lunch specially packed for you by the kitchen staff.
  • Enjoy a leisurely sunset cruise aboard a luxury speed boat and watch the azure lagoon transform into shimmering molten liquid under an orange sky — it’s spellbinding!
