Accommodation

Tree Top Forest Chalet

Hide away in the treetops, deep in the unspoilt forest.

Situated in the Harkerville forest, between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, the chalet is tucked away at the head of a wide valley. From this hideaway you can absorb the tranquility of an Eden that has remained unchanged for thousands of years.

Bird-watch, botanise or simply observe the changing light in the forest-canopy as the hours pass by. If you can tear yourself away from the large viewing deck, the comfort of this well appointed self contained chalet is yours to enjoy, you will lack nothing.

Bring your mountain bikes and ride some of the finest tracks in the country. You may, on the other hand, wish to take a more leisurely stroll along a nearby forest trail.

General Information:

  • The chalet has two double rooms, each with its own bathroom and sleeps four in comfort.
  • Due to the geographical location of the chalet, clients will have to check-in with a valid proof of payment or confirmation letter at the Garden of Eden by no later than 18:00 to collect their keys. (The Garden of Eden is situated on N2 between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.)
  • Guests arriving very late pose logistical challenges as the gates and office close at 18:00. Should you arrive late, prior arrangements must be made for the key.
  • The chalet may be occupied at 14:00 on the day of arrival and must be vacated by 10:00 on the day of departure.
