Knysna's best kept secret!! Generally: Log-fire cold nights and mild T-shirt days. Little rain and no mosquitos.
Nights may still get chilly and days can get hot.
Teniqua Treetops is a unique, eco-friendly, self-catering, tented tree house resort hidden in the indigenous forest between Knysna and Sedgefield along the magical Garden Route of South Africa.
Fern Gully is 16kms outside Knysna in a rural, forested area on the way to the historical Millwood Goldmine and indigenous forest. The wooden cabins are set amongst the trees where one can unwind and commune with nature.
We are sited 7mins, by car, from the lagoon, on the Cape Town side, then a scenic drive around to Knysna central, craft shops/malls/waterfront/restaurants/events etc…positioned on top of deep forest valleys, a rejuvenating get-away.
Nieu-Wherry Meadow is a guest farm perfectly situated just outside the historic Knysna forest. We are walking distance to the trails and MTB routes and 22 km from Knysna, 20 km from Buffelsbay We offer self-catering accommodation.
