Surrounded by sky, mountains, waters of the ocean, rivers and lakes, the freshest air, and endless horizons. Offering guests privacy, nature and nurturing for the soul.
Our architecture seeks harmony with our astounding natural setting, blending into the landscape from afar and combining natural textures, wood and stone elements in clean and strong modern design. High ceilings and large windows frame and accentuate the sweeping views across rolling hills, mountains and forests, lakes and rivers, pristine white sand beaches and whale sanctuary to the endless horizon beyond. The sophisticated, understated interior design for Alkira was conceived to embrace the beauty of our surrounds and to create spaces that our guests feel cozy while unfolding into the views and surrounding nature.
Alkira is your home during your unforgettable stay. Whether you are making new acquaintances, or seeking solitude, you are sure to find a space perfect for you.
‘Alkira’ (meaning: SKY): floating at the feet of the heavens, surrounded by the ever-changing canvas of the Southern African sky. A place where guests can feel comfortable and feel good. A space to be uplifted, intrigued and calm. Places and spaces to be together with friends or to linger quietly.
Alkira Lodge is situated in a private nature conservancy, above the popular tourist town of Knysna. The fynbos is home to abundant bird-life, shy antelope, endangered butterflies and guests can stroll, hike or bike on the reserve or visit the magnificent beaches below Alkira.
From Alkira Lodge guests have a birds eye view of all that makes the Garden Route unique, and the activities, shops and restaurants of Knysna are an easily accessible 15 minute drive away.
