Nestled in the hills above Knysna (pronounced “nighs-na”), in the middle of South Africa’s Garden Route, is a lodge that blends luxurious accommodation with environmental responsibility. It’s called the Phantom Forest, and it’s one of the most unique places I’ve ever stayed.


The lodge offers a range of amenities including a pool, hot tub, sauna, spa, and restaurant (where we were served one of the finest meals of our lives). Everything within the lodge is connected by wooden boardwalks that meander through the forest and minimize the impact of foot traffic on the environment. Staff help organize a variety of activities including hiking, cycling, paragliding, sailing, horse riding, and canoeing.


A stay at the Phantom Forest Lodge is a marvelous experience, with a satisfying balance of luxury and ecological accord. It’s not an inexpensive venture (rooms run around US $300 per night), but is well worth it. You will leave totally relaxed, completely satisfied, and thoroughly content.


The Phantom Forest Lodge is located seven kilometres west of Knysna, South Africa, at the foot of the Phantom Pass. For more information, go to
