Had an absolutely stunning romantic stay at Tenique Treetops. The view from the tree house was awesome felt like living with the birds in the trees. Would definitely recommend.
Something different the whole family will enjoy

Teniqua Treetops went well beyond our expectations! We had such a warm reception with Beatrice and the unit was just stunning. It had everything we needed and a view that takes your breath away!
Great view and super comfy bed!

Spent one night in Gorge View treehouse this last weekend and loved it. Was quite a wild experience as the wind was pumping through the valley that evening and the little house was creaking dramatically and swaying occasionally. Quite an adventure. Loved the bathtub and the views. Great ecological ethos throughout, and was, of course visited by one of your furry 8-legged friends. Would have been a disappointment (almost) to have not come across a creature of some sorts in those surrounds. We thoroughly enjoyed and wished we had another night available to us to spend there. Alas, holidays are too short.
A truly magical experience

We only had one evening at Teniqua Treetops and my only regret was we couldn't stay longer.
Everything was truely wonderful. The hosts Robyn and Viv showed us around and were very knowledgable about the environs and are doing a wonderful job with conservation of the forest. The accomodation is very comfortable and the most relaxing place to stay. I can't recommend Teniqua nearly enough.

Unpleasant stay - dirty river water to bath in. No proper toilet. Weber braai rusted and broke, scattering hot coals and our dinner everywhere. Fridge not working. Stoep door can't lock. Spiders (big ones) everywhere. Cold with air flow from the gaps in the wooden plank flooring in the morning. Owner still in bed at 08h30 when we wanted to settle account.
Relaxing Weekend away

If you need to get away from it all and need a break to just relax and forget about the world out there - this is the place to be. It would be nice if the price include a breakfast and it would be nice if there were a cozy resturant to have a romantic evening without making your own food.
Well worth it

The tents on plateaus fit nicely in the trees and bush, not tree"top". Very quiet, eco-friendly with limited water supply, less spiders than ancipated, but well overpriced.

A piece of heaven on earth. We could not get enough of the fresh air and forest sounds. Our kids (5 and 9)were in their own tents and for them it was a feast. The tub and toilet between the branches was an incredible experience. Thank you.
'n Stukkie hemel op aarde. Ons kon nie genoeg van die vars lug en bos-geluide inneem nie. Ons kids (5 en 9) het in hulle eie tente-kamer geslaap en dit was vir hulle 'n fees. Die bad en toilet tussen die takke was 'n ongelooflike belewenis. Dankie dat julle dit met ons gedeel het.

We could not have wished for a better place to spent our honeymoon.

As you walk in the door of your tree house you feel like you start to relax. What an amazing set up. Total seclusion, eco-friendly and lap of luxury combined. An ingenious idea. Our tree house was built hanging over the edge of a 250m gorge. Views all round, the best being from the corner bath. The tree house is self-catering and you can sit on the balcony with your weber and just enjoy your surroundings and watch the sun set. If you are a little more energetic you can walk in the fynbos or down the gorge to the river. It's steep but well worth it even for the not so fit. I found that everything
was covered from the hot water bottles to the mosquito nets. I will never forget the experience and I would love to return. Maybe for a little longer next time.
Garden of Eden

My husband and I needed a break from two teenage kids and this was the perfect place. You really can find peace for your soul at this little garden of Eden. We had an amazing time and was even happier when we found that there was no cell phone signal. A must for all nature lovers.

We absolutely enjoyed an AWESOME weekend at Teniqua. It's sooooo peaceful your only choice is to relax and enjoy each other's company. And it's true ... you hardly ever see any other people. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor loo and bath ....

Our stay at Tenique Treetops was phenomenal! Their aim is to be as green as possible (reusing rainwater for example, pumping water from the local river), so it felt great staying there knowing they care for the environment. You stay in your own little cabin/tent amongst the trees, fully furnished kitchens, private jacuzzi on the deck at the back, waking up to sounds of the forest around you. That was my favourite part - feeling a part of nature as the birds serenade your wake-up with the rising of the sun. There is an amazing hike that surrounds the property, leading down into the river bed and up the mountainside again. A pool and game room is within walking distance to use as well. Amazing!

We enjoyed our stay for 2 nights. It was the sort of experience that we wouldn't have missed but probably the sort of experience that you only do once
Very nice, except for the weather.

Teniqua Tree tops is definitief ingerig vir die somer. Die kombuis was yskoud. alhoewel daar 'n klein elektriese verwarmer was was dit net genoeg vir die kamer.
In vergelyking met Tsitsikama Lodge waar ons laas jaar gebly het was ons bietjie teleurgesteld. en vir die prys wat jy betaal verwag jy mos net die beste! Die view ja is Awesome en meer privaatheid dink ek nie jy sal êrens anders kry nie. Teniqua Treetops se plekkie was skoon maar dis asof die meubels en beddegoed bietjie oud was. In vergelyking met Tsitsikama Lodge wat ten volle toegerus is vir die koue winteraande en warm someraande met luukse beddegoed en gas verwarmer sal ons enige tyd terug na Tsitsikama Lodge!!!!!
Tree tops nie sommer gou weer nie.

Arriving on a dark winters evening we received a warm welcome from Robyn and dogs, and a given a much needed hospitality pack to start us off. Arriving in the dark and making our way through the trees made it all the more exciting...I couldn't wait for the morning to reveal all. 'Loeries Nest' was equipped with all you needed including electric blankets for the unexpectedly chilly weather. The following day, hubby and I had a lovely meander through the grounds and a spot of birdwatching - didn't quite summon up the energy for the 4 hour walk though. Showering (and visiting the loo) with spectacular views was extra special. Gorgeous sunset! Perfectly private spot for those who like the idea of rustic mother nature with the touches of creature comforts!

Myself and my (New) wife enjoyed the stay at Teniqua Treetops very much and would love to return sometime in the future. The accommodation is very much High Tech for the bush / forest. All facilities you would expect from a "Bush Hotel" are there.
I must mention the woodwork that has been done and can be seen in the furniture, building etc. It is amazing.
We are the camping / outdoor type of visitors, so obviously we went walking the trail that is available in this protected area. We enjoyed that just as much.
Thank you very much to Teniqua's Management for the hard work in making this unique kind of holiday a reality. Thanks
Christo and Hildegard
Very special place.

Our stay at Teniqua Treetops was absolutely awesome! Moon over Milkwood is a tranquil spot which I will recommend to anyone looking for a romantic breakaway.
It was an amazing experience.

The environment and the facilities provided had the right blend of being with the nature and yet did not miss the basic amenities that one associates with comfort.
Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Would like to return for a longer stay.
Thank you Robyn.
A little peace of heaven

Amazing...peaceful, private, awesome views, fantastic setting and well equipped. To be able to soak in a big bath on the patio and look at the stars is just surreal. An experience never to be forgotten.

Our stay at Teniqua Treetops was absolutely fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed it and I am quite sorry that we only spent two nights there.
It is definitely a place I will be returning to in future.

A wonderful idea and very well appointed units. Our stay was too short and, unfortunately, the weather was not good, but we will definitely be back in the summer to get the full benefit.
We had a lovely time,

Its so private, tranquil and beautiful there. The walk down the gorge to the mountain stream was well worth doing, although the water was very cold!! Being in love and sharing this type of peacefulness was just perfect.

A really unique experience. Very beautiful and relaxing accommodation in awesome treehouse in the forest. Our kids want to stay forever. We'll definitely be back!

It is definitely worth the visit! Hearing the sounds of nature, having a view of tree tops outside the sun room, bathing in an "outside" double bath. Just being away from the concrete jungle, traffic and hustle and bustle of city life was fantastic. You are guaranteed of privacy.
What a place.

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The atmosphere is great and the views were out of this world. Thanks for a fab time.
Very relaxing yet comfortable escape from the "rat race".

We found the setting absolutely beautiful and yet the tree houses are extremely comfortable and well equipped. The layout and design of the tree houses make for an easy vacation.

We had a great time being one with mother nature.
The accommodation was amazing, and very comfortable; we really felt as if we were the only people there and it was a relaxing and fun experience.
A fantastic oyster festival with Teniqua accommodation

Wow what a place
To be accommodated outside of Knysna (and at Teniqua Treetops) during the busy Oyster Festival weekend was the best choice we made. In fact we didn't want to go anywhere else as we had everything we needed with us.
I highly recommned these wonderful hosts and their 5 Star accommodation to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay on our wonderful coast.
Book as soon as possible - you don't know what your'e missing!!

The name of the treehouse says it all. We did not only get away from the city hustle and bustle, we also got away from any manmaid sounds. It was only the birds, the trees and us. Stunning.
