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. Looking out across the Knysna Lagoon towards the Heads 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!
