Trogon House and Forest Spa is situated 15 minutes from Plettenberg Bay on what is arguably the most scenic part of South Africa's Garden Route. This secluded luxury lodge offers a uniquely quiet and peaceful atmosphere: attached to massive tree trunks and set in the tree tops of an indigenous forest, the lodge consists of three elevated buildings linked by wooden walkways.

Trogon House embraces nature with its transparent glass walls and skylight roofs, making this an extraordinary experience for all visitors. Daily guided walks in the forest and drumming sessions on the deck at your private pool are some of the activities on offer, and there's plenty more on offer in the vicinity: the region is home to many adventure activities as well as family-friendly animal parks and some of the finest beaches in the Cape.


  • Amazing seclusion on the Garden Route
  • Elevated accommodation in forest setting
  • A romantic retreat, perfect for honeymooners
