Forest Creek nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, at the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Set in a private nature reserve, ideally located between Dullstroom and Lydenburg.
The gorge is softened by an emerald cloud forest and canopy of trees, into which the thatch and stone lodge blends naturally, with magical views of the surrounding forest, cliffs and mountain. Nature lovers will delight in magnificent bird sightings, hiking trails, streams and tree platform, an ideal stop for a picnic. Ancient stone structures are scattered throughout the forest, fascinating remnants of Africa’s earliest people.
Spoil loved ones with relaxing massages in the Forest Spa overlooking the gorge, and private candle-lit dinners in the gazebo. For added romance, indulge in the secluded moonlit bush bath beneath the stars with champagne.
Cosy stone cottages and suites with crisp white pure cotton linen, bath robes and dark wood finishes reflect the romantic ambience. All have private entrances, DSTV, mini bar fridge, tea and coffee, electric blanket, fan and heater. Some with fireplace, Victorian bath or outdoor stone shower. Two have self-catering facilities.
Enjoy good food and wine, and roaring log fireplace in winter. Horse riding, mountain biking and clay pigeon shooting.
