The Forest Reserve and The Crags


Trogon House and Forest Spa lies concealed within untouched indigenous forest, halfway between the Keurbooms River and the scenic holiday village of Natures Valley. Your journey to Trogon House takes you down a little road called ‘Animal Alley’ where the famous wildlife attractions of the Garden Route are situated. You will drive past The Elephant Sanctuary, Birds of Eden, before ending the tarmac part of your trip at the entrance of Monkeyland. Just to the right of the Monkeyland entrance, there is a clearing in the forest, and the dirt track leads you through and under the canopy of the Tsitsikamma Forest onto our doorstep.

The Forest around us houses all forms of life; birds in particular are in abundance with the rarer Knysna Turaco (Tauraco corythaix) as well as the Narina Trogon (Apaloderma narina) being common sightings for us forest dwellers.

Of course with Monkeyland neighbouring our property, the howling cries of the monkey’s and lemurs can be heard from dusk until dawn bringing an enchanted feeling to this green wonderland.

Our local community known as The Crags is seething with extremely talented craftsmen and creative energy just flows through our streets. From mohair factories, to African local craft shops, delicious little off the beaten track eateries and we even have our own Winery. Bramon Wine Estate produces a wide variety of wine, wines that rival the best the wine route of the Southern Cape has to offer. The Crags has it all for the traveller who appreciates going "local".
