Trogon House lies in untouched indigenous forest - halfway between Keurbooms River and Natures Valley, the most scenic and unspoiled stretch of Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route in South Africa.

Your journey to Trogon House takes you through an Elephant Sanctuary, past the Birds of Eden and Monkeyland reserves to enter a 1.4 kilometres pristine track winding beneath the trees under the Forest Canopy.

Deep in the forest the track opens up to an elevated sun-drenched pool deck high up in the canopy with spectacular views of Tsitsikamma Forest. Being suspended on massive tree trunks, the lodge embraces the forest with glass walls and roofs, creating a true 'in the forest' experience in Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route.
