Forest Creek is an exclusive, private place in the Mpumalanga Escarpment offers an escape from the bright city lights. Marvel at the expansive night sky and fall asleep to the sounds of the night in our Luxury Lodge Suites or one of the self catering accommodation options available. A wonder for the Nature lover!
It is only when one gets to the gate of Forest Creek Lodge that the rock-strewn grassland is left behind, one climbs up, and up, and enters this little enchanted world. Come and enjoy some good food and wine snuggled in front of our log Fireplaces, and go home feeling indulged.
At Forest creek one can see the remains of ancient villages, home to Africa’s earliest peoples. They can be found everywhere, by your lodge suite, along the Hiking trails, and by the stream… On this magnificent piece of land we hope we have catered for everyone, from Luxury guest suites at the main lodge to the Forest Cottage, Bee Eater, The Beach Cottage & Sunbird self-catering options. During the cooler months, come and enjoy the Big Fireplace in the Lodge Lounge. There are hiking trails along the stream under the canopy of trees. Treat yourself to an hour or two of relaxation in our Forest Spa.
Wi-Fi is available on request at the Lodge, or bring your own portable 3G connector.
To ensure your privacy, Lodge Suites are not adjoined to the main lodge, requiring a short walk to the communal lodge areas.
