The Fairy Knowe Hotel, affectionately referred to as ‘the old dame’ of popular vacation spots in Wilderness. This dame might be old but she still has a lot of spring in her step!

The perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route, it’s pristine beaches, indigenous forests, lakes, world-class golf courses, organic farmers markets, amazing water activities, hang-gliding, shark cage diving, hiking trails and fantastic birding opportunities all within a radius of 30 – 50 km.
The hotel is a birders paradise with over 280 species to be found here, of which the Knysna Loerie is a regular visitor.
Uncomplicated and old-worldly, the hotel offers basic, clean accommodation with breath-taking river views. The ‘value for money’ room rates includes a plated English breakfast in the hotels’ main building between 07:00 – 10:00 daily. Accommodation at Fairy Knowe Hotel ranges from Rondavels, rooms within the Hotel and annexe rooms facing the river.
The ‘old dame’ is beloved throughout South Africa as she was the honeymoon destination of choice in her heyday! With a history dating back as far as 1874 you can only imagine the splendour of days gone by.
Situated on the banks of the Touw River, the hotel forms part of the greater Wilderness Nature Reserve and Estuary. Wilderness is one of only five documented areas in the world that has, within a five-kilometer radius, sea, land, rivers, lakes and mountain ranges.
