A Bath in the Tree and a Beautiful Bird

Leave a comment


One of the great parts of our work is checking out new accommodation and we recently had a great experience in Sedgefield near Knysna in the Garden Route. If you like to get away from the crowds, taking hikes and waking up to birdsong – you’ll have a great experience at Teniqua Treetops.

This eco-friendly accommodation offers rustic but comfortable tented tree houses created by two very patient and capable owners. The tents are very clean and well equipped with lots of lovely personal touches and little details everywhere. I thought the bath tub in the middle of the tree top canopy was very special! The mountain water is clean but has a slightly brown colour. When you fill up your bath it feels like a coca cola bath. Add being surrounded by birds it makes for  a very surreal experience…

For the kids there is an entertainment lounge with a TV, a table tennis table, pool table, darts and even Wifi! Lovely solar powered hot tub available too. All en all, a super location to explore the heart of the Garden Route.

I confess I didn’t take the beautiful picture of the Knysna Loerie myself although I did see it more than a few times during my stay. None stayed still for long enough for me to get a photo….
