We are a 3 Star Rated Self-catering Exclusive resort with accolades for birding, family friendly and hiking, issued by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. Situated in 36 hectares of forest on the Garden Route, 16 km’s from the N2. We are off the beaten track and partially off the grid. The closest town, shop and restaurant is 20 minutes away in the slow town called Sedgefield.
Our on-site facilities include a licensed bar serving drinks and refreshments only, 2 forest trails and a river walk giving guests access to the Karatara river and rock pools.
Eight suites are nestled within the magnificent indigenous Knysna Forest. The suites are built in a gorge, so access is from ground level and the front of the suite is built on stilts ranging from two to six meters above ground, giving you breath-taking views of the Karatara Gorge or the majestic Knysna Forest.
We’re best suited to nature lovers, those wanting something a little unique, quirky and adventurous; especially when the winds pick up and the odd thunderstorm hits.
