South Africa Holiday Specials - Phantom Forest Eco Reserve is one of the most romantic places along the Garden Route, situated in a forest overlooking the Knysna Lagoon.

Phantom Forest Eco Reserve in Knysna - View

Nestling in the Afromontane Forest, just seven kilometres from Knysna, with endless views, shared only with the 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!

On arrival at Phantom Forest Eco Reserve, you will be met and transferred into the forest - this is where your exciting adventure begins. There is no need to leave the forest but if you desire, all the activities of the Garden Route (and Knysna in particular) are literally on your doorstep.

Accommodation is in 3 different style en-suite 'tree houses' (called tree suites). The tree houses are on stilts and very private (with good distance between others) and blend into the forest surrounds. Great for honeymoons, anniversaries or just a romantic getaway!

Much emphasis has been placed on the use of sustainable methods of construction at Phantom Forest. Alien vegetation, gleaned directly from the eco restoration program, has been utilized 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.
