Bird Watching

Bird watching at Pumula Lodge and surrounding areas

“Pumula Lodge boasts a prolific bird life counting more than 120 species to date.” The magnificent, indigenous garden at Pumula Lodge is the perfect setting for nature lovers and bird watchers alike. Pumula boasts an abundant bird life and more than 120 species have been identified to date. For true birding enthusiasts, the Woodbourne bird sanctuary is a mere 3 km from the lodge and well worth a visit. Here the many visiting waders can be enjoyed at leisure. Or, take a close drive to the surrounding Knysna forests and enjoy a pleasant walk on one of the many trails. You might just catch a glimpse of the shy and elusive Narina Trogon.

Expectations well exceeded

The owners and staff go to great lengths to ensure you have an enjoyable stay and produce a particularly well presented and enjoyable breakfast. It is a wonderful property overlooking the cleverly landscaped garden and pool.

Excellent Facilities and a beautful location

Great place to spend a few quiet days in Knysna which has a lot to offer in terms of excursions and restaurants. Pumula is close to Pezula and Knysna Golf Clubs which is ideal for the keen golfer.A trip up the the viewpoint at the East Heads is a must too for those not vertigo challenged!!
