On Leisure Island 

Leisure Isle is a suburb thick with vegetation that is home to a large variety of birds.  Burchell’s coucals, weavers, oriels, drongos, hadedas, sunbirds and the occasional Knysna loerie (touraco) all visit the gardens of Amanzi Island Lodge. In the shallow waters surrounding Leisure Island you’ll spot egrets, kingfishers, cormorants, plovers, herons and spoonbills.

Surrounded by soft white sand and washed by the ebb and flow of the Indian Ocean, Amanzi Island Lodge occupies prime position on the idyllic landscape in the Knysna lagoon. In this tranquil environment you cannot help but wind down and relax.
