About Jembjo's Lodge

For a little bit of luxury that is kind on your pocket, our boutique backpacker/lodge offers exactly that. Tucked away in the heart of the Garden Route, here at Jembjo’s we take pride in making you feel at home. We are both experienced travellers with a wealth of knowledge in travel and tourism in Africa. As owner / operators we know how important a friendly face & a comfortable atmosphere are...

In our opinion, there is no better place to experience this than in Knysna.... simply, a little bit of paradise that is ‘South Africa’s best kept secret’. So come check it out!

Jembjo’s has a range of accommodation to offer... from Dorm beds, twin/double/triple/family standard rooms that use shared bathrooms to en-suite rooms with their own private bathrooms. We offer 'basic' self-serve complimentary breakfasts throughout your stay, consisting of boiled eggs, toast, jams, fresh fruit & unlimited tea/coffee. There is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, as well as a communal ‘BBQ/Braii’ area. We also offer free wi-fi and a premium DSTV package.

We are ideally located just a 5 minute walk from the Knysna ‘Waterfront’ & the bustling little town centre, so stow the car in our car park & go for a stroll.

We can arrange a number of activities and day trips with transportation in and around Knysna, or make use of our bicycle hire and navigate the area yourself. Be assured, we are at your service and will do our best to accommodate your requests to ensure that you have a fabulous stay in Knysna.
