Loved our stay at Trogan House! We stayed in the furthest room from reception - Room 5. The room was amazing! It is almost completely made of glass and gives you the feeling of sleeping in the forest! It is similar to being in a luxury tent or tree house. Our food from the restaurant by the Chef was very...

We stayed over at the Trogon House and Forest Spa on our way to the Addo Elephant National Park. We were absolutely amazed by this place and regret that we stayed only for two nights. The place is accessible through a private road that starts at the entrance of the monkey sanctuary. We had a general rental car with which... More

This place is difficult to make out. It is more for tourists than locals. Its pretty much someones really nice house transformed in to a lodge. We stayed in the master suite and our door was adjacent to a toilet. The design isn't too great so you may as well be sleeping in the dining hall because you can hear... More

With friendly staff, peaceful environment and just plain beautiful. Trogon House is a must for any traveller or honeymooners who seeks privacy. Surrounding nature reserves offers affordable and fun activities for the whole family. The forest spa is relaxing and excellent.

We had high expectations of this guest house and it delivered. Our rooms were quiet and away from the main areas and easy to access for my elderly mum. The main areas were amazing - pool and restaurant. Nicci was the perfect host and all the staff for that matter were professional and friendly. Breakfast was generous with a lovely... More

It is like a luxurious mansion in the middle of the forest. Doted by several swimming pools, great living rooms and fabulous decoration.
