Alkira Lodge Setting

The lodge provides a birds-eye view of the Garden Route's unique offerings, with Knysna's activities, shops, restaurants, and Blue Flag beaches just a short drive away.

Alkira Lodge, meaning "sky," is aptly named, as it sits at atop a hill allowing guests to connect with the ever-changing canvas of the South African sky.
