There’s something about unspoilt nature that simply compels you to relax and unwind.  Surrounded by dense, flourishing forest and vast beaches, Teniqua Treetops showcases the natural world to its most awe-inspiring effect.

The expansive treetop resort is beautifully positioned along South Africa’s famed Garden Route, known for its diverse vegetation and shimmering lakes that flow into the sea. 

Consisting of pure, protected indigenous forest and wide open grassland, this is a true haven for wildlife, and with over 100 different visiting varieties, a real treat for confirmed bird-watchers!

Our Couples’ Treetop suites exude warmth, intimacy and bring about a peace only natures beauty can conjure in your soul.

Each of the 4 suites are uniquely different, but what they have in common is stunning mountain and indigenous forest views, large corner sunken baths overlooking the Knysna forest and outdoor decks making for precious moments gazing into the milky way.    

Two of the 4 suites have compost toilets those being Gorge view and Greenbeard, don’t let that deter you, from fully experiencing the majestic views these two suites have to offer and embracing the Treetop experience.

Moon over Milkwood and Louries Nest have conventional flushing toilets and are wrapped in the arms of the forest trees, allowing you to rest in her embrace. 


Family Sharing Treetop suites:- are best suited for a family of 4 with kids under the age of 13, but if the adults don’t mind a bunk bed and the light weight is on top you good to go. 

The Eyrie and Tranquillity were designed with young children in mind. 

These suites are built on stilts in the gorge with easy access along the forest floor, while we would love to mimic the idea of a Jungle Book treehouse, it wouldn’t be fit for these busy little souls and missing out is just not an option at Teniqua Treetops. 

The large shared bedroom with queen bed and bunk beds, may add to the squabbling of who gets the top bunk but makes for family fun and special memories to last a lifetime. 


Family Double Treetop Suites: -

There are only two of these suites available and each is remarkable different to the other.  These suites are suitable for families with older kids or four adults. 

Philosophers’ Perch is the flagship treetop suite, the first to be built at Teniqua and the only suite that is accessed via stairs.  This two-bedroom suite is nestled in the forest with an open kitchen / dining area and shared bathroom built amongst the tree branches as though hiding you from the world. 

Forest Elders was rebuilt after an accidental fire and now boasts two large bedrooms, shared bathroom and the company of the famed Knysna Turaco (Knysna Lourie) who regularly have one on one combat with the bedroom windows.  Needles to say, neither of them get hurt in the challenge.   The outside deck provides forever views of the Karatara Gorge and the forest we are fortunate enough to call home.
