Woodlands Knysna Self Catering Forest Accommodation – Knysna Forest Self Catering Accommodation – Woodlands Self Catering Accommodation in Rheenendal – Garden Route – South Africa


“If it is quiet, views of indigenous forests and a beautifully landscaped garden you are after, look no further.” – Heila D.

Our indigenous garden with paths, bridges, rockeries, fynbos, ponds and numerous benches is the idyllic place to relax and unwind. One of a kind hanging gardens, sculptures and planter shelves add to the overall effect of living art. A private walking trail winds down through the indigenous forest before crossing our suspension bridge over the stream at the bottom of the valley. Our forest is home to plenty of wildlife including porcupines, bush buck, wild pigs, monkeys, baboons, spotted genet, caracal and honey badgers as well as incredible bird life including the iconic Knysna Turaco. Sunbirds, Hoepoes and various water birds also frequent the gardens throughout the year.
