A very fun and nice trip in the forest. The braai are/ bath are really enjoyable with this view. Everything is perfect, but for the ones that want to go: don't forget that you're going in a forest not in a new fancy hotel...bring all your food and stuff and your trip will be amazing

Hi Emmanuel I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. I think your adivce to fellow travellers is very accurate. It is a forest on a farm. It is not a city with municipality services and sterilized environments. Its trees, fynbos, insects, birds, butterflies, stars, sunsets life and beauty. Regards Robyn More

Absolutely a lovely gateway destination. We had a great stay and the views is excellent! Everything you need at the place with a great bath tub. We did the walk in the forest. Only the pathway at the river was difficult to find. But all other aspects was truly awesome!!

Hi, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will go re-open paths again, thanks for the advice. The forest wants to grow, it lives. I think if we left here within 20 years not only would all the paths be closed by the tree houses would have returned to being forest. Regards Robyn More

Couldn't believe how much was jam-packed into one property: weber, microwave, fridge, and safe in a treehouse? The Swiss Family Robinson has nothing on this place! Also on property: swimming pool with balance beam to spar on, solar-powered jacuzzi, board games and TV for rainy days, jumbo chess board, jungle gym, sandbox, communal firepits... Only negative is hot water -... More

Hi, I am sorry there was not enough hot water, pleased you still enjoyed your stay. The 'jacuzzi' was originally put in as a kids play pool, so we did not worry about heating it. But that is not what its used for so we need to change that and put proper heating in. As for the tree house I... More

Our family loved staying at Teniqua Treetops. It was a great place for the boys as they enjoyed the "tree house" lodging and we all enjoyed exploring the beautiful trails and river. The bath in our accommodation was spectacular! It is a wonderful place to spend several days and just relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Being so close to nature, having all the privacy you can ask for was what I expected and the experience was all that and much more. The accommodation is great and the beautiful views of the forest is breathtaking. Would recommend staying there any time.

Very interesting hideaway in beautiful area; woke up to a tree full of Knysna trogon. Well equipped; enjoyed a visit despite a very rainy weekend. Make sure you bring along a flashlight if you arrive after dark.

This is a great place providing you understand what to expect. If you are uncomfortable with the thought of large spiders and other insects sharing you living quarters, one to avoid (though it's nothing like "I'm a celebrity"). If you are a nature lover though this will provide a great experience in glamping (glamorous camping). All the local bugs and... More

Loved everything about Teniqua. The tented rooms, the green fields with horses, the walking trail straight out of a fairy tale, the loeries and swimming in the rock pools at the bottom of the ravine. Magical Place!

I recommend the Gorge View cabin. It is amazingly luxurious but still keep the illusion of camping in the forest. Everything is green and the human footprint is kept to a minimal. The river walk is just challenging enough to give a sense of accomplishment once completed. Don't forget to just take a moment to take in the awe inspiring... More
