Hiding Knysna loeries, Narina trogons and, some even say, forest elephants, the Tsitsikamma Forest is found in the very heart of the Garden Route. A luxurious woodland retreat can be found in Trogon House—a B&B that invites the outside in and is conveniently located near to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, an elephant sanctuary, and the idyllic coastal hub of Plettenberg Bay.
The Garden Route is a verdant stretch of coastline and forest in South Africa’s Western and Eastern Cape. Natural attractions abound along with charming seaside towns loved by locals and foreigners alike. Explore Nature’s Valley and Tsitsikamma National Park, jump off the highest bungee jump in the world, walk through the forest with elephants, and soak up the sun alongside locals in towns such as Knysna and Plett.
Trogon House is spread across Malabar Villa—home to a Master Suite, 2 Double Deluxe Suites, a deck, lounge, fireplace, bar and swimming pool—and exact replica Tomba Villa with a Master Suite, Double Deluxe Suite, and a Twin Deluxe Suites. Breakfast is served in the Palazzo Dining Suite and dinner can be booked by prior arrangement.
