The owner is the sweetest man ever. Helped us with our every need. The house is a real hippy/boho vibe and the nature is absolutely stunning. The whole happening is such a vibe. 10/10 will visit again.



Rainforest Ridge Lodge . Wow , what a splendid weekend we had at this rustic lodge . We had the pleasure of our first stay at the Rainforest Ridge Lodge . We have been delighted to meet the owner Benn .
We as a family selected The Crags as a central position for a family 70 birthday celebration .
Thus we stumbled upon this accommodation option . As a group we needed beds , volume and space , we got this and more .
The surrounding views are simply said , beyond amazing . Mountain peaks to the north west in the distance . The ocean visible to the south . A vista of hill and valley scenery either side of the venue property .
As grandparents we had the joy of seeing our three active grand sons FREEDOM paly from dawn to drop dead tired at day end .
Can really say this is a gem of a venue albeit robust . Such a calming and peaceful position the Rainforest Ridge Lodge . Thank you so much Benn .

I LOVED this beautiful place. Everything is just perfect and the view is amazing. The owner Benn is a true legend, very knowledgeable about the surroundings and happy to take you on adventures in his 4x4 - with or without his 5 adorable dogs :)) I will be back here for sure!



We stayed here for three days and I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say. The location is simply stunning. It is absolutely quiet here, or you are very slightly removed from civilization, but you can quickly get back to the main road and there are many opportunities to do great activities in the area. Ben and his team are all top notch. Rarely met such courteous and friendly hosts. I can only recommend everyone to plan a few days here.



Thanks for the great stay! A super nice and big house with a great view as a bonus! A lovely owner named Ben and his awesome dogs. The rooms are nice and big. Highly recommended on the Garden Route.

We had a fantastic 2 days at Ben's. The highlight was the hike to the river below where you could swim and chill. Ben is a relaxed man with 5 very friendly dogs. The cottage was spacious and equipped with everything. The view from the balcony is unbeatable.... In the morning with sunrise and at night the stars were bright and beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others!



Perfect place for a breakaway in the mountains. Gorgeous dog guides to lead you on your hike into a blissful rainforest spring. Hear the lions roar at night. Ben is a lekker host who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is great and you are comfortable. Swings in the trees, fire pit, lazer lights and music in the mountains made our new years eve one to be remembered.

We spend 2 days in ben's farm. and i think this is my favorite place in south africa. i want to come back everyday and i think this place owns 300 stars and not only 5



On arrival the owner was very friendly. We did not intend to stay 1 week but ended up doing so. The cottages are nice and clean and modern. The king size bed was really comfortable and gave us 7 nights and some days of great sleep. The views are outstanding. We could see the ocean from the bedroom and from the kitchen. We had a great fish braai in the lapa. There is a hiking trail with views second to none and a river with crystal clear water at the bottom of the gorge. We ended up staying a week although we had originally planned to travel around every 2 days accommodation wise. Thanks we will see you next year!

My husband and I found this beautiful place whilst road tripping for our honeymoon. The views were absolutely out of this world and such a beautiful place to stay ! Benn the host was so friendly and really made our stay just that much more amazing! We can definitely recommend this place, especially if you are after a City escape! It is unbelievably peaceful!

Rainforest Ridge Lodge is a stunning accommodation in the middle of nature. The accommodation offers a fantastic view and invites you to relax. The Host(Benn) lives and realizes his dream with this project. We loved the accommodation. Best regards Kim, Tyler and Lion

One of the most beautiful places on the garden route and in the world!
Ben is the best. Welcoming, friendly, chill, cool, interesting and helpful.
Hope to be back again and again and again!

Absolutely fantastic! We spent the weekend at Rainforest Ridge, using both the lodging and the newly renovated venue for a themed birthday party, it was honestly incredible! The rustic nature of the venue was beautiful with amazing panoramic views over the gorge below. Ben (and his dogs) went out of his way to accommodate our large group (15 persons), looking after our every need. I would definitely recommend Rainforest Ridge for a relaxed getaway or as a party-venue

Quiet, Peaceful, Beautiful and Memorable! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here with about 16-17 others! Will 100% be back. Thanks to Ben and Staff for making my stay in ZA one to remember! Cheers!

Awesome views, beautiful sunsets, the best braais, a great host and enough activities to enjoy yourself for weeks is how I would like to describe my stay at the rainforest ridge. Would have given more stars if I could! Keep up the good work!



Absolutely stunning panoramic views of the gorge here. Ben is a gem and an outstanding host.
Room was very cozy and clean. We stayed for a couple of weeks and were provided with clean sheets every other day.

“Incredible place with an incredible view. I usually like to raise at least some sort of issue with places I have stayed in but there were none. If you are planning on spending some time in Tsitsikamma this is the place to stay at”
