New Beginnings!

In February 2002, Viv and Robyn Patz sold up their properties and business interests in Johannesburg and bought into the dream that is now the paradise, Teniqua Treetops, tented tree house resort.

Sixteen years later and the time has come for Rob and Viv to hand their legacy over and look forward to a much deserved retirement in the slow town of Sedgefield, never being too far from the dream they have built over the years.

It is with great pleasure that Rob and Viv announce that Teniqua Treetops has been sold to the Maitland family, with the confidence that they will continue and grow the beauty of the uniqueness that is Teniqua Treetops.

The Maitland family has come together from all over South Africa in pursuit of a different lifestyle that can only be found on the Garden Route. “It didn’t take much to fall in love with Teniqua”, “We are honored and privileged that Viv and Rob have given us this opportunity to flourish in this amazing environment and allow us to take Teniqua to greater heights”


Teniqua Treetops is a totally African experience; a rustic, ecologically sound, small development of 8 unique tree houses, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Knysna forests in the beautiful Cape Province of South Africa.
