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.

Tranquil base

We stayed at Pumula for several nights during a recent vacation and had a really nice time. The hotel offered a peaceful place from which we could explore the Garden Route. The grounds include a nice pool and also the garden offers the chance to lean about native plants, with labels on the trees. We really enjoyed having morning tea on our private balcony.

Beautiful, Comfortable and Best Price

We had the privilege of discovering Pumula Lodge via an internet search and it lived up to its name. It was indeed a place of rest. Rentia recommended the best places for us to visit and even had maps on the ready for us to make use of and pamphlets with discounts which we loved because who doesn’t like a discount. Our 2 nights felt very short but we enjoyed the accommodation and would go back there in heartbeat.

Wonderful place

Pumula Lodge is a perfect stay if you are visiting Knysna, it is in a quiet part of town but easily accessible by car or taxi to the main areas, with a lovely garden and pool. The facilities are excellent, well kept and spotless, the rooms are spacious and well appointed with a veranda to enjoy the view of the garden. There is a shared kitchen area with a fridge for those essentials you need whilst travelling. The hostess is very helpful and recommended a trip to Featherbed with a discount and arranged taxis for us. We had a wonderful day there. Breakfast is lovely and lots of options to eat. All in all we had a very lovely stay.
