Phantom Forest Eco Reserve is situated on the southern Cape coast of South Africa, in the heart of the Garden Route. It is a delightful hidden gem, only ten minutes drive from Knysna and with stunning views of the valley, mountains and Knysna Lagoon.
Set within a private nature reserve, consisting of three biospheres of Afromontane Forest, Cape Coastal Fynbos and Estuarine wetland, the concept of Phantom Forest is of conservation of its surroundings. Elevated tree suites are an African celebration of natural textures, from silky Swazi cotton sheets, to hand-woven coir carpets, from stunning end-glass gables to the sensuous forest bathrooms.
Phantom Forest is not all about being 'one with nature', it is a place to relax, enjoy a treatment at the 'Body Boma' and to end the day with the incredible cuisine that Phantom Forest has become famous for. Phantom Forest is the perfect choice to enjoy the surrounding area, a unique rustic experience and with easy access to all the sights and experiences that the Garden Route has to offer.
The main lodge is connected to the suites with boardwalks through dense forest, each suite is extremely private and secluded making this the perfect getaway for relaxation and ideal for honeymooners and romantics. After a busy day sightseeing, you can laze by one of the two pools taking in the spectacular views, or jump in to the wooden hot tub, enjoy a spa treatment in the body boma and then indulge in what has to be some of the best food in town. Phantom Forest would be a highlight in any Garden Route holiday.
