There is a place, not far from the sparkling Knysna Estuary,

on the Island of Leisure, under the shade of the large Bottle brush,

in a quiet green garden where there is foodies and sanctuary and love for all feathered friends of this world.....

"Egyptian Goose Lodge".

Let us invite you to a Bird Breakfast on the Garden Route of South Africa.

Why should you come ?

"Egyptian Goose Lodge" is an unique opportunity to bird watch while having a superb breakfast, with more than 20 species of birds of the area, also experience the special behaviours and variety of birds that frequent "Egyptian Goose Lodge".

We live for our birds, we raise lost chicks, aid sick birds, feed every day over 100 birds and spend many hours with them.

We have just successfully re introduced our beloved famous Egyptian Goose, Sydney better known as "Shoo Shoo" to the Island people, back to nature after having saved him from a one day old abandoned chick and raised him 2 years.

Sydney and his new found wife and his friends now drop in from time to time to say hello and sample some foodies and fresh water that we leave for them every day next to the pool.

The Breakfast: 9-11am
Pre booking required with minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 10 people.
We serve breakfast under the large Bottle Brush Tree with the feeders, breeding boxes, bird bath, and bird hotel a couple of feet away from your table.
We serve Fried, poached or scrambled eggs with streaky bacon, roasted cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and a beef or pork sausage, with fresh flapjacks, mango preserve and cheese, tea and coffee.
