A secluded hideaway nestled amongst the branches of an ancient indigenous forest

Perched in the canopy of a pristine natural forest sits a small collection of treetop suites. Located along the Garden Route, Teniqua Treetops self catering suites offer scenic views of dramatic and lush landscapes. With a mindful approach to preserving the environment, each suite is built out of sustainably farmed pine and gum and has been constructed to blend in with the lush forest. The property’s water supply is directly drawn from the nearby Karatara River and is passed through a 10-stage eco-friendly filtration system without the use of harmful chemicals. With over a hundred bird species located in the 27 hectares of the resort, Teniqua Treetops is the ultimate bird lover’s paradise. Guests can enjoy waking up to calls from the African fish eagle and the Knysna turaco during crisp misty mornings. With a number of nature centred activities available in and around the resort days spent at Teniqua Treetops are never dull. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy early morning or afternoon walks within the property’s lush forest and end their days exploring the river trail that winds down to untouched rock pools.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Garden Route

The best time to visit this region is in the warmer months of September to April. The Garden Route is rainy throughout the year and is a popular summer destination that can get busy over the Christmas holidays. You will soon understand why, as you feel the warm rays while kloofing, abseiling and paragliding or simply taking a dip in the azure Indian Ocean. The months of May to August are colder but will provide opportunities for whale watching (peaking in September) with more windless days to enjoy.
