I picked this because I thought the kids would love to stay in a treehouse; it was definitely the right decision. The treehouse was a series of tents on a platform in the indigenous forest. Ours had two "bedrooms" separated by the (fully equipped) kitchen and dining area. All modern conveniences in the treetops. The treehouses are far apart from...

As a person that is really afraid of snakes and not very fond of spiders as well, I really questioned my sanity when we booked at Teniqua Treetops. I read other reviews and when I saw that no-one reported any spider/snake related deaths, I thought okay it can’t be that bad then. I really don’t regret letting my husband talk...

What can i say its so hard to explain how wonderful this place is. Me and my husband stayed in one treehouse and my daughter and boyfriend in another. We felt like we were the only people on the earth when we were in our house as it is so secluded but then we went to the main lodge we...

About 20 minutes drive from the main road between Sedgefield and Knysna is a real oasis of tranquility. We stayed for 4 nights in January 2012 and it was the perfect place to wind down, relax and do next to nothing for a few days. The treehouses are ingeniously designed - a combination of a tent and a house with...

We (2 adults, 2 kids aged 9 and 12) stayed for three nights in early January 2012. I think the comments about snakes and spiders are a bit overplayed. Maybe the owners are being a bit over honest by their website warnings and descriptions in their guest information folders. Sure, you are living in the middle of a forest so...

This is a beautiful and wonderfully quirky place to stay. We stayed for one night in December 2011 and loved our treetop adventure, but clearly it's not going to be for everyone, so we'd encourage you to look at the 'Don't Come if' page on the resorts website before you book. We loved staying in somewhere so peaceful and waking...

Well - where to begin! I am terrified of spiders, and had to question my sanity at booking one night at Teniqua Treetops - however, my partner convinced me it was a experience of a lifetime, and darn it - he was right!! We were met by the really friendly owners, who took us down to our cabin (Greenbeard) and...

What a treat and a brilliant find! Will definitely be back for another visit. Pack your books and cards for relaxed evening entertainment under African skies. A pair of walking shoes, which you dont mind getting wet and stock up on your food supplies (including charcoal) before arriving as you wont want to leave once you get there. Teniqua is...

On a trip along the garden route we stopped here for two nights. It was a nice retreat - very remote and nice for private romantic getaway - but no convenient food, pretty messy common areas, okay service, and fairly dirty room (big spiders even in the bedroom). I was a little puzzled when we were charged 50% deposit while...
