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.

On this magnificent piece of land 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

One of our unique activities at Forest Creek are the Hiking Trails in the “Cloud Forest”. The trails are designed for the entire family, and are most suitable for the even not-so-fit person. Under this canopy of trees and at the edge of the Mountain one feels very small, in comparison to the magical views. The walk to the waterfall is approximately 2 kilometres, winding through the forest and criss-crossing the stream in several places under the canopy of large indigenous trees. One is likely to hear the baboons barking and spot the odd bush buck or red duiker and see the Cinnamon Doves, Narina Trogon's and Lourie's that frequent the forest. In the wetter months the ferns, orchids and wild mushrooms offer spectacular opportunities for the more photographic inclined.

A tree platform built in a large fig tree above the forest canopy, is an ideal stop for birders or to just relax and enjoy a picnic! 

Scattered in the forest are remnants of old stone structures some of which are supposedly several thousand years old and are under study at present. The forest is beautiful, friendly and safe.
