At the base of the lovely Tsitsikamma Mountains, alongside ancient rivers that make their way towards the Indian Ocean, lies the beautiful Forest Ferns Estate. Occupying a magnificent position that borders onto the Tsitsikamma National Park, it has enchanting views of the rugged coastline, river gorge, and surrounding plantations… the perfect spot to reacquaint yourself with nature and renew the harmony of your soul.

The Fernery is positioned in the most spectacular of settings. Perched aside the ravine gorge of the Sanddrifts River, this dramatic outlook offers views across the Indian Ocean and the remote Tsitsikamma coastline.

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Tsitsikamma Mountains, with breathtaking views of the rugged coastline and meandering rivers, our enchanting fernery offers a unique escape into nature’s embrace. Immerse yourself in the beauty of our gardens, where every corner is a testament to nature’s artistry, a place where one really can unwind.
