Last week we had a wonderful tima at the Peace of Eden Nature & Vegan Lodge. After a whole week of surfing and action we needed some time just for us back in the nature and with the Peace of Eden Lodge found exactly what we’re looking for. Located near to Knysna you will find this beautiful place of earth. The perfect spot to relax, hang out with a clan of vervet monkeys, the budding blackberry bushes, her extremely artistic and talented family, the ripened cherry tomatoes straight from the garden and the unexpected surprises that the forest brings daily.
Besides of the cottages there are a few forest tents surrounded by ferns and forest, a truly magical back to nature experience. Each tent has either a Twin or Double bed, small table, 2 chairs & a shelf there are 4 separate communal timber huts housing a kitchen, Loo’s and a Shower. We spent some time at the Marimba cottage with a tin-roofed veranda with stunning sunset views over wild grass fields to the forest beyond. We loved it very much. There is also an eco campsites in a field along the forest edge, for those who bring their own tent.
Vegan food plays an important role at Peace of Eden. The lodge focuses on a self-catering basis, but in their cute Forest Café, they serve a colorful, creative and nourishing vegan cuisine. Their humble, gourmet, head-chef, Jen, will be more than happy to welcome you. Her cooking is much more than just food. Jen puts all of her energy, love, and creativity into each dish to help inspire the guest. If you prefer to cook for your own you just have to keep in mind that it’s not allowed to bring meat on the property. We basically cooked for our own, but had one delicious breakfast at the cafe and can highly recommend it.
The Recording Studio
Another huge role at Peace of Eden is the recording studio. It inspires creativity, offers a relaxed atmosphere free of cluttered schedules, and is equipped to produce a professional quality recording and audio-visual products. Apart from its ideal location and facilities with a creative team of musicians/engineers who can help realize the potential of a recording project. A perfect place to be creative! There was also the Greenpop’s Festival of Action 2018 located from Livinstone in Zambia to Peace of Eden last year.
