South African Dream
South Africa - Garden Route and Karoo
HOTEL CATEGORY: Tree House Eco lodge - five stars 

Unbelievable accommodation!

Phantom Forest Eco Reserve, on the southern Cape coast of South Africa, in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route... whispers a very special magic.

Nestling in the Afromontane Forest, just seven kilometers from Knysna, with endless views, shared only with our Fish Eagles, the large and elevated luxury 'tree suites' are an African celebration of colour and textures.
Experience the evocative sounds... scents... and tastes of Africa... at their very best!

Privately owned, within 137 hectares of nature reserve on the Knysna Rive the Phantom Forest offers a unique bio-diversity of Afromontane forest, Cape coastal fynbos and estuarine wetland. There are over 150 bird species, bush pig, bushbuck, grysbok, the rare blue duiker (one of Africa's smallest antelope), and a variety of smaller game.

Emphasis is placed on the use of sustainable methods of construction. Alien vegetation, gleaned directly from our eco-restoration programme, has been utilised in floors, furniture, roofs and boardwalks. Drawing inspiration directly from nature, a harmonious balance has been created, from ragged thatch rising into the forest canopy, to wood shingle and a 'freshwater' nature pool. In true eco-terms, man's intrusion in our wonderful natural environment has been graciously accepted by both flora and fauna.


Tree Suites - 6 Classic Tree Suites are a magical celebration of African textures. Named after indigenous trees (such as Monkey Plum and Turkey Berry), these elevated tree-suites comprise an entrance area, bedroom & sitting room, stunning end-glass gable, sensuous bathroom with glass roof over double-ended bath, twin basins, separate shower room with bidet & loo and relaxing deck.
Natural fabrics in subtle creams, earth tones & black, echo the Xhosa style.
All suites enjoy views over the Knysna Lagoon or forest
Upper camp Suites - 4 Upper Tree Camp Suites, a magical celebration of natural fabrics, are intimate and romantic. These suites are the perfect honeymoon hideaway.
Count the stars together in the jetted outdoor bath on your private deck, or cosy up on the indoor daybed with a glass of wine. Arum, Erica, Strelizia and Watsonia are named after species in our Fynbos Floral Kingdom.
Moroccan Suite - This Tree Suite is in synergy with our theme of 'Touch and Taste Africa'. These fabulous suites are decorated with a distinctly North African feel, from the sensuous touch of silk and velvet, to the visual beauty of mosaic and handcrafted lamps.
