Phantom Forest Eco Reserve

The Phantom Forest Eco Reserve, on the southern Cape coast of South Africa, in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route… whispers a very special magic.

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

Classic Tree Suites

Our 6 Classic Tree Suites are a magical celebration of African textures. Named after indigenous trees (such as Monkey Plum and Turkey Berry), these elevated tree-suites comprise an entrance area, bedroom & sitting room, stunning end-glass gable, sensuous bathroom with glass roof over double-ended bath, twin basins, separate shower room with bidet & loo and relaxing deck.

Natural fabrics in subtle creams, earth tones & black, echo the Xhosa style.

All suites enjoy views over the Knysna Lagoon or forest.

The 4 Upper Tree Camp Suites, a magical celebration of natural fabrics, are intimate and romantic. These suites are the perfect honeymoon hideaway.

Moroccan Tree Suite

Our Moroccan Tree Suites are in synergy with our theme of ‘Touch and Taste Africa’. These fabulous suites are decorated with a distinctly North African feel, from the sensuous touch of silk and velvet, to the visual beauty of mosaic and handcrafted lamps.

The mood of a most fascinating part of Africa has been created.
