“An amazing little retreat atop the canopies”
Reviewed 14 March 2017

We came to Teniqua Tree tops for the second leg of our honeymoon and were warmly greeted by the owners. The cabin we had was a perfect blend of rustic, charming, practical and functional. I felt like I was aboard a ship, following Peter Pan through Neverland as one of the lost boys or that I was Robinson Crusoe. All at the same time.

Teniqua is located about 20 mins from Sedgefield, 30 mins from Knysna and 90 min from Tsitsikamma. The area is breathtakingly beautiful, quiet and peaceful.

I would highly recommend the location to any tourist wanting something a little different and magical as they explore the Garden Route.

More emphasis on the beautiful bird life at Teniqua
More emphasis on the trees, plants and flowers found there. Allso the Fynbos.
Perhaps some names on boards fix to trees will help identify the species.
Perhaps a brochure with the most birds, trees and flowers/fynbos found and to be on the lookout for at Teniqua. The kids will love this hunting/searching game while staying at Teniqua Treetops.
Hope this can help or get you thinking.

The tented room was not up to standard.
Hot as hell.
Not even a ceiling fan.
It was a wobbling tree house,very cramped.
We left without staying there! Forfeited our payment! But it was the best move! Stayed at Protea in knysna,which had all the mod cons and comforts.
The owners should warn guests!
It would be closest to camping! Not even glamping!
Sorry ! Owners need to be more open!
Not Recomended at all!
Just being honest! And hope it will save others there hard earned cash!

Hi, Sorry you did not stay. We try and show people up front what do expect and even have a page on our website "Don't come if". Its not a hotel, it is wacky, we don't compete with the Protea Hotel. We are 3 Star and I appreciate for some its the wrong place.
I am sorry

Frying pan very worn. Teflon is almost absent. I do not like to eat Teflon. Please replace with a steel pan. The toilet vent could be better. I do not know how. Fantastic views from the terrace and rooms. Hiking trails very well marked. Please build more houses at the edge of the valley! But not visible from neighbors. The tear closure from the tent is broken. So the cat can always go to bed. Cat hair allergy! But all in all really great. Envious keep it up. Protects nature!

A great place to stay in the middle of nature. Nice hiking in the nearest sourunding. Animals all around. Even people with handicap are able to live in this tree houses. An amazing view from the house and from viewing points around the hike.
