WELCOME TO FOREST HARMONY

Its time to connect with nature.

Come with no expectations, plead your baggage at the door.
Come to forget the world behind you and remember who you are. It’s wild and we like it this way. You will have all four weather seasons in one day. Hangout in a hammock or Pick a Tree. Spend-a-day by the river or take an official SANParks hike. Enjoy self-catering or spoil yourself with Forest Kitchen. We serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner made up as much as possible from our heirloom organic garden. (please pre-order).
Choose from Tippies, Geodomes or a Hobbit sandbag house or spend a night in each to sample the different resonance of the three natural structures.

Sustainable Living

Forest Harmony is the culmination of a 20-year search for the perfect location. It’s a journey towards self-sustenance, self-nourishment and a beautiful place to just be after the hustle-bustle and jostle of a lifetime in the beautiful city of gold (Jozi).
Forest harmony is the end of the road. A cul-de-sac. This far and no further. Our border blends seamlessly into the garden Route national park. Currently being expanded from 4280 thousands of unfenced pure and utter wilderness. We are surrounded by indigenous forest, fynbos, and the Knysna and Gouna rivers.
We look onto the Outeniqua (meaning place of honey in Khoisan) mountains and into an unspoiled part of the Knysna river gorge.
Forest Harmony is a slice of magic you can touch, feel and smell.
