Under Milkwood:: Accommodation

View Under Milkwood Tourism Grading Certificate Here

On the tidal shores of the famous Knysna Lagoon, lies a collection of 16 self catering timber chalets, nestled amongst leafy vegetation and indigenous Milkwood trees. The tranquil setting offers guests a haven of leisure and comfort. It is the only resort at the world-renowned Knysna Heads to have direct access to the beach, which is framed by the Featherbed Nature Reserve and the majestic Outeniqua Mountains on the far horizon.

Perhaps while relaxing on your patio, you will even catch a glimpse of one of South Africa's most striking birds, the scarlet-winged Knysna Loerie.
To quote one of our guests: “Check into the three-star Under Milkwood for a four-star experience.”
