Can anyone tell me how to get Knysna tree-top chalet?I know I need to check-in in Garden of Eden, but,
I mean: can I get there by car? :roll:
Is there an open parking next to chalet?
Do I need an off-road car?

Thank everyone :gflower:

P.S. I apologize for my bad english... 8)

When you check in they will give you directions.
From memory the turn off the main road is about 100m further down the road (towards PE) from the Garden of Eden. From there is is about 1km (roughly).
I think there is a gate that you will need a key for.
There is plenty of parking at the chalet and it is fine for a sedan car.
Enjoy it is a lovely place.

Hi,
I've tried searchig for the facilities of these chalets but can't seem to find a definitive list.
Was wondering if it had a braai area?
Thanks

Welcome to the forum cheeheese :thumbs_up:

Yes it does have an outside covered braai. It is pretty good.

It also has a jacuzzi but in my experience itsn't not been possible to warm the water up. It is worth you checking whether it is working when/if you book...i'd actually be interested to know if it is too :hmz:

This leaflet also used to be available on the SANParks website but i can't see it any more

Thanks guys. appreciate the quick response.
I have already booked my stay so just wanted to be prepared food wise.
Will check whether the jacuzzi works properly when we check in.
I'll report back here when I return mid April.

Hi cheeheese we were there in October last year and what can I say 'wow' you are
in for a treat :dance: ... You book in as you said at Garden of Eden which is on the
opposite side to the entrance.. They give you the keys and instructions and you then
drive right up to the chalet. The Braai is on the deck and they give you plenty wood.
The 'Hot tub' is also on the deck and worked fine when we were there just takes a while
to warm up but it's worth the wait :clap: ... More advise is as you are the only ones in
the Forrest ( great bird watching) and quite far from Knysna you have to take everything
with you ie. food, drink & good company :whistle: ... Lucky you have a great time ENJOY :thumbs_up:

I just want to add what all he rest have said that the kitchen is to die for and there is a washing machine and tumble dryer in the one bathroom. not to mention the TV . log fire indoors too .as well as the braai area outside
