On my first visit to Africa, I took a week to tour the Garden Route and was traveling serendipitously without any solid plans… While I was hanging out in Hermanus, I read a magazine that was raving about Phantom Forest, an eco-reserve in Knysna, so I decided to make that my next stop! The trip was a pretty huge whirlwind of awesome, but Phantom Forest stood out among other hotels with its amazing views, hilltop privacy, monkeys!, delicious homemade breakfast, and a cabin that felt like my own personal fort in the Afromontane forest. I even got to see a Knysna Turaco! [/lourie, whatever you guys are calling it!]
