A friend decided to hold his birthday bash at The Fernery and invited a handful of friends to come along and share his day. 6 couples joined the party. Well what an experience. The Fernery is set in the Tsitsikamma forest on the edge of a gorge overlooking the gorge to the sea. The views are spectacular. The accommodation is...

Hi there, I was so, so impressed with The Fernery. I will recommend it everywhere I go, and will definitely visit again when doing a road trip down to CT. Thanks so much for the service and in some instances going that extra mile.

Jaw dropping scenery that, for once, looks every bit as good as the advertising shots. Combine that with some friendly staff, good food and wine and the every present roar of the ocean in the background. Wish I had stayed for longer - we just loved this place!

If you can find this place and your hire car is sufficiently robust this is little haven of peace tucked away behind a heavily wooded area. The Fernery is reached by a 5km gravel woodland track. It is very quiet with breathtaking views over a small waterfall. Restaurant and staff are very good. Rooms are well appointed. Very quiet at...

Fernery lodge was a "wow"-effect during our Garden Route Tour this year. It is located a bit away from the busy N2 (ca. 15 mins), but the extra mile is paid off in many ways: The lodge sits on the rim of a gorge with an unrivalled view over waterfalls and the indian ocean. The chalets are stylish and in...

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Fernery. You definitely need at least 2 nights to really enjoy the hikes, birding and the area. The restaurant is adequate with a great view but it would be awesome to use the braai facility at your cabin that is offered. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall a lovely stay.
