Relax & Re-connect with Nature at Forest Creek Lodge & Spa

Exciting news!

Our resident pair of Black eagles had a Chick in the nest, it has now flown the nest, so now we watch 3 Black eagles flying, what a sight to see every day.

This incredibly 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!

Forest Creek nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, which is the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Set in a Private Nature reserve of the Mpumalanga escarpment. The gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown in this malaria-free zone over millennia.

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 enter this little enchanted world. This winter come and enjoy some good food and wine snuggled in front of our log Fireplaces, and go home feeling indulged.

Historical influence is evident everywhere in Mpumalanga, from the legendary King Solomon and Queen Sheba to the ancient floating villages of Chrissiesmeer.

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...

Day visitors are welcome, and can book any of our activities - cost per person is R50.00

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.

* Please note: to ensure your privacy, Lodge Suites are not adjoined to the main lodge, requiring a short walk to the communal lodge areas.

Forest Creek Lodge is a haven for honeymooners - celebrating your first, fifth or fiftieth, you will be inspired by the romance of this incredibly exclusive, private place.

A wonder for the Nature lover!
