We offer a variety of activities at our resort. Our guests often plan to visit local attractions, but sometimes, once they arrive, they don’t leave. It’s a beautiful place to relax and soak in the tranquillity.
Wander down to De’ Adder Padda our on-site bush pub and enjoy a drink a two, relax while the kids play on the jungle gym, chase the ducks, chickens, peacock and peahen.
CAUTION, we have three grumpy horses, technically one horse, one blue eyed donkey looking pony and one pony. Feed and pet at own risk, they have been known to nip, and kick.
Challenge your partner or friends to a pool game, darts, or foosball. Walk through the forest or take an invigorating trip down to the gorge and swim in the cola-colored rock pools. Please remember, walking trails close at 4pm in winter and 6pm in summer, this is for your own safety. Please stick to the roads, pathways, and trails. If possible, notify reception when going for a walk and returning and ensure you have a map. View our walking trails here.
Teniqua Treetops is a birding paradise, with over a hundred species of bird. Awaken each morning to their spectacular dawn chorus. The night is a symphony of owls, nightjars and bushbuck. Every day, we are blessed with the calls of Knysna Turaco and African Fish Eagles.
We have 27 hectares of pristine indigenous forest, 3 hectares of fynbos and 6 hectares of open grassland. This encourages a wide range of birds.
Each Treetop Suite is private and hidden on the edge of the forest, becoming its own bird-hide. In the entertainment area there is a wild-fig tree that is its own eco-system. At night, if the fruit is ripe, you’ll see fruit bats enjoying a feast. During the day, Cape White Eyes, Knysna Turacos and Forest Canaries dine on the fruit. Vervet monkeys may even dare to snatch a fruit or two.
