Featured in Getaway!

Excited to see our beloved Teniqua Treetops in the Getaway.

It’s early morning at the foot of the Outeniquas and the air is filled with birdsong, distant donkey heehaws and a rooster’s crowing. You’ll quite likely see rain spiders taking shelter on your canvas walls – the eco-conscious couple who created these eight solar-powered tented ‘treehouses’ don’t fumigate, so creepy crawlies are part of the package. Spread over 35 hectares in the Garden Route National Park, these simple cabins have kitchens, braais, electric blankets and heaters.

Hiking trails through the forest leading down to the pristine Karatara River. Alternatively, use this as a base to sample the Garden Route’s many hiking routes. Colin Wylie of Garden Route Walks offers a variety of guided day hikes, from R380 pp (minimum four people and excluding park fees).

It’s about 30 minutes (35 kilometres) from Knysna on the N2. From R3 168 for two in a honeymoon treehouse and R2 650 for a two-bedroom treehouse.
