Dear guests,

Welcome to the Fish Eagle Lodge in Knysna. With its quiet yet central location in the heart of the Garden Route of South Africa, it is the ideal choice for your vacation. The accommodation is spread over 2 buildings which are positioned within a large, well-kept 10,000 square metre African garden.

The first impression of Knysna is the gorgeous lagoon, nestled in the green of the forests and mountains. A view of this very lagoon can be enjoyed from your balcony, the terrace and pool or garden on the hill of the Fish Eagle Lodge.


How about a game of golf at one of the magnificent surrounding golf courses? Why not plan a hike or bike ride through the woods? Perhaps you are on a journey, exploring the various wonders of the Garden Route?

An overnight stay at the Fish Eagle Lodge is the perfect starting point. We are not just any B & B, but pride ourselves on super service, hospitality, well-kept accommodation and first class breakfast.

With us you will not be disappointed!

A lodge with the tradition

Our story

Klaus&Renate Geisler  had immigrated with 2 daughters (6+7) on the 15th Oct 1975 to Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1993 they moved to Knysna/Western Cape to begin a new life there. They found a piece of land (rest of a former farm) in a beautiful area facing the Knysna lagoon and to the surrounded hills, in order to build-up a Lodge. One building was renovated and enlarged and some new buildings built. The Lodge was named  ‘’Fish Eagle Lodge’’, as the African fish eagle nestles here by the Knysna River. The Lodge was open on the 15th Dec 1993, a dream come true, and it has been successful since then.. New owners, Jana & Steffen, are dedicated to keep this tradition. With the same passion.

Surrounded by nature

Not exactly the Garden of Eden.....but almost!

Created more than 25 years ago and consistently maintained with love ever since, our magnificent garden is a prime example of typical African landscaping. It is comprised of a 10,000 square metre lawn, palm trees and flowering plants, not to mention countless different bird species. Regardless of the weather or time of day, there's always something to discover.
