A lovely guesthouse in Knysna along South Africa’s celebrated Garden Route - includes breakfast and discounts for wildlife attractions

For off-the-scale scenery, it doesn’t get better than South Africa’s celebrated Garden Route - the 200-kilometre stretch of stunning Western Cape coastline that packs in lush indigenous forests, excellent sandy beaches, tranquil lakes and lagoons, and a fair few glorious mountains too.

Set in the natural paradise of Knysna within easy distance of the Knysna Lagoon and the mountainous Knysna Forest, the gorgeous boutique-style Augusta Bay Guest House makes the perfect base from which to explore the region. There’s a small dip-worthy outdoor pool, a lovely lounge and bar for sundowners, and a fabulous atrium where you can refuel on delicious cooked-to-order English or Continental breakfasts pre-sightseeing.

Golf is a huge deal in Knysna, so it’s no surprise that the seven rooms are named after iconic golfing destinations. All offer a mix of classic and contemporary design and plenty of home-from-home comforts, but the three Deluxe rooms raise the bar for their lagoon views and sumptuous king-size beds dressed with snuggle-worthy feather down duvets.
