The Phantom Forest Eco Reserve is privately owned Garden Route lodge, within 137 hectares of nature reserve on the Knysna River. The unique biodiversity of afromontane forest, Cape Coastal fynbos and estuarine wetland is inhabited by countless bird species, bushpig, bushbuck, grysbok, the rare blue duiker and a variety of smaller game.
Using only sustainable building materials, from ragged thatch rising into the forest canopy to wood shingle, from meandering boardwalks to a natural freshwater pool, a harmonious balance with the surroundings has been preserved at Phantom's Garden Route lodge.
Sundowners at the Eyrie are spectacular, with sunsets and views extending all the way to the famous Knysna Heads. Experience the joy and the stillness of Africa on a picnic, canoeing on the river, or hiking along trails through forest and fynbos at this Garden Route lodge.
The tree suites at Phantom's Garden Route lodge are a magical celebration of African textures, from silky Swazi cotton sheets, to hand-woven coir carpets, from stunning end-glass gables to the sensuous forest bathrooms. Bathe in luxury at Phantom's Garden Route lodge, to the symphony of birdsong or in quiet contemplation of the African night sky.
Wander to the traditional boma where dining is no rushed affair and Pan African cuisine with local colour is served in the classic style. End a memorable evening with tales around the fire, sipping a delectable African blend of coffee and liqueurs at this luxurious Garden Route lodge.
