Alkira Lodge
The Garden Route

Perfectly situated along the beautiful Garden Route, Alkira Lodge is a real delight from the moment you walk through the doors.  With only five beautiful and luxurious suites and rooms, the lodge enjoys breath-taking views over the Knysna Estuary, the Whale Sanctuary and the pristine white beaches beyond.    Set in a private nature reserve with abundant bird life, the lodge setting is as peaceful as it is spectacular. 

Integrating with the surrounding nature, the lodge combines natural textures making use of local wood and stone.   The main lodge features indoor and outdoor breakfast dining, a lounge, library, games room, infinity pool, heated jacuzzi and an extensive sun terrace on which to relax and enjoy the spectacular views.  For the evenings and during the cooler months there are cosy fireplaces creating a warm and romantic atmosphere. 

A short distance from the lodge is an exclusive and beautifully appointed 3 bedroom chalet which is a super option for families.

Knysna's town centre is 4.3 miles away and the stunning Brenton Beach is within walking distance. A range of activities are offered in the area, such as golfing, fishing and canoeing. Discounted golf at popular local courses is offered to guests and assistance is available for planning activities each day.

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
Henry Miller

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
