Cool carvings. Taller people bumped heads on low beam in bathroom and small kitchen door. Bathroom with a view was great. Teen girls a bit wary of moths and spiders. Birdsong and fireflies a highlight,

Hi, I am pleased you enjoyed it. We have very grand ideas for upgrading this tree house. I hope before December, but it will probably be early next year. We continually try and improve the spaces. Our plan is to make this a double story, so lets see...

Teniquatreetops provides the environment for a restful holiday where one has quiet time both for oneself and one's family with the option of conviviality in the shared leisure spaces if desired. I loved the privacy and the sustainability of the lifestyle which the treehouses offer a window on.

These treetop houses are absolutely exquisite - beautifully designed in every way, such thought and consideration going into every part of the design. The beds were luxurious, in spacious rooms with absolutely stunning views. The owners are passionate about the environment, and were a pleasure to talk to about the forest and surrounding areas. Will be recommending this unique spot to all my friends!

Tranquility. We enjoyed being in the forest and still having the comfort of a big warm bath. Well supplied self catering unit. Your not allowed to bring wood for the braai, so remember to bring charcoal. (you can buy it at the reception)

Tucked away in the bushes, your very own fully functional Tree House. Every child's dream realised (even as adults). Really great set up, totally chilled, spacious and comfortable. Great walks and bike rides. If you want to see other people, you can, if you dont want to, that's cool too.

If you like being in the bush but dont like having to rub sticks together for fire or dig a hole to.....you know, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Ask for family suite, two seperate "suites" ample space.

My girlfriend and I just finished a two week road trip in South Africa and Teniqua Treetops was our most memorable place along the way! Set 15 km off the highway between Sedgefield and Knysna, up in the surrounding forest with trees over 1000 years old, this is a must see, truly unique experience. Each treehouse was carefully constructed by the owners without damaging a single other tree in the forest. They have full kitchens, king sized beds, bathrooms, and a full bathtub, carefully built with a special "treehouse" feel. The living area and porch opens out onto the forest canopy where birds fly by and you are surrounded by trees. The view extends over a beautiful gorge and if the sky is clear a great place to view stars. The owners have gone to great lengths so that everything is eco-friendly. Water is collected from the stream below and purified, solar energy is used for heat, and the septic system is completely dry, clean, and eco friendly to the forest below. We spent two amazing evenings waking up in our bed to the forest canopy and birds below. A 2 hour hike into the gorge is one of the many hikes that are available. Entering the grounds along a dirt road, horse graze which we stopped and played with. This was truly an amazing experience for us as a couple interested in the outdoors. There are game rooms and other areas geared for families as well. The treetops represent a way of living, and are more a work of art than just a place to stay. We give it our highest recommendation!!
