A group of 6 of us stayed for two nights in the Philosophers Perch and Eeyrie. The management were great, cabins beautifully built and the surrounding forests with walks and an amazing lookout over the valley were just stunning. I very much recommend this as a stop on your way along the garden route or a relaxed, escape into nature... More

We loved the tranquility and being 'away from the madding crowd'. Being in the treetops with the birds and birdsong, was simply wonderful. Electric blankets on the beds was a real treat and the huge bath with a view through the trees was a highlight. The kitchen and braai facilities were great and we loved the eco-friendly technology.

Hi Kate, I appreciate your input. I will raise the quad bikes with my staff. Where your tree house was, there should have been 2 bikes, 2 trips per day no more, unless you can here the bikes going to other tree houses. I will implement a monitoring system to try and work out why and address the problem. Dogs... More

Everything was absolutely fantastic. The views were amazing... even from the loo, that took a little getting used to, but would not have swopped it for the world. Was hoping to see more creepy crawlies, but I guess it is winter. Thank you for making the first week of our Honeymoon a memorable one.

One night was not enough time to really explore all that you can do on the property! What a cool place to stay, quirky tree houses with incredible views. I especially love the outdoor bathrooms and braai deck!

Hi Jo Pleased you your stay. I agree, it is best to spend a few days here to relax and enjoy the peace and traquility. We are a destination , not a drive through. So please come again. The walks, though tough are specatular, 35 hectares of pristine indigenous forest. Regards Robyn More

Wooden kitchen & bathroom with permanent tented main bedroom. Accommodation is rustic but clean, neat and well-equipped. Lovely outdoor bath with view of surrounding nature. Very eco-friendly establishment! Lovely, albeit steep walk to the... More

After some horrible days in Cape Town we arrived at Teniqua last minute, which was no problem. What a surprise!!!! Great place, great idea, great people, we loved it. The toilet and water system are wonderful and worthwhile. Yes, prices are high for travellers but it was worth it! Totally relaxed and a nice walk to the river. Braai was... More

Hi Ronja, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. The electric blankets are a must for winter and they are low wattage. So its an environmentally friendly way of staying warm. The last few nights have been sooo cold. I know we do charge more, but our maintenance is high (and ongoing). The distance between each tree house dramatically increases... More

We thoroughly enjoyed being close to nature with forest experience being peaceful and relaxing. The unit is well appointed and the design unique being constructed by locals with glass, wood and canvas.

Hi Derek. We try and be creative. I think if left without any maintenance, any people, in about 10 years if you came here, the foerst would have returned the tree houses to mulch, not sure what would happen to the windows though ! We try to be as natural as possible, creative and organic. I am pleased you enjoyed... More
