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.

Privately owned within 137 hectares of nature reserve on the Knysna River, the Phantom Forest offers a unique bio-diversity of Afromontane forest, Cape coastal fynbos and estuarine wetland.

Nestling in the forest, with endless views shared only with the Fish Eagles, the large and elevated luxury 'tree suites' are an African celebration of natural textures from silky Swazi cotton sheets to hand-woven coir carpets, and from stunning end-glass gables to the sensuous forest bathroom.

Experience the evocative sounds, scents and tastes of Africa... at their very best!

On arrival at the Gatehouse - you will be met by 'Bush-Butler' Wilfred, who speaks 7 languages! You will then be transferred to the bush vehicle - and the Phantom adventure begins!

Hearing a Fish Eagle cry, and a door softly closed... the door of a rushed & noisy world. What bliss... to be at one with Nature in all her glory - sounds, scents, the glory of a Knysna Loerie in flight - the fleeting glimpse of the shy Bushbuck... the heart stopping sunsets... the symphony of birdsong greeting the African dawn... to bathe in total privacy while gazing in wonder at the night sky... to savour the tastes of Africa in the Boma - layer upon layer... this is indeed food for the soul...
