Company information

It has been a wonderful learning process. We all hail from the city and now Iive in the forest, who would have ever thought we would have landed up on this magnificent property.....

Property information

We are a creative treetop resort hidden in 35 hectares of pristine indigenous forest, in the Garden Route of South Africa. Its a place to come relax, enjoy a piece of paradise. We offer nature at its most wondrous. I never knew there were so many shades of green. We only have 8 treetop suites, so you can hideout and not see anyone.

Neighbourhood information

Our closest town is Sedgefield, also known as the "Slow Town" and it's true to it's name :) When we crave a little more of the city feel, both Knysna and George are only 30 min away.
