So much to do ... so little stress.
For the International traveler Forest Creek Lodge is an ideal place to relax and unwind after a long flight - a mere 130 km to the Kruger National Park, enjoy the treatments in the private Forest Spa, or just enjoy the tranquility of the bush.
Forest Creek is a Photographers paradise, with opportunities for getting up close with local fauna and flora. Being far from city lights, our night skies are so clear you will think you can touch the stars!!
There is a private Airstrip 8 km from the farm. We provide transfers from the Airstrip to Forest Creek Lodge.
We cater for small intimate weddings, a maximum of 14 people. These take place outside under the Gazebo. We provide all the food and beverages, accommodation, and decor for the function.
At Forest Creek you will dine on a four-course d'hôte dinner served in our candle-lit dining room (Table d'hôte is a French phrase that literally means "host's table"), and have a choice of five-breakfast menus. We have a small menu for lunch. Weather permitting we will cook on the braai. For those who wish to hike lunch packs are available. For those who have special diets, we request that you inform us prior to your arrival.
The water at Forest Creek comes from a spring, and we bottle our own Forest Creek spring water. Forest Creek boasts a huge fireplace. Weather permitting, you can enjoy your meals and drinks outside on the veranda overlooking the valley.
The Forest Spa
Relax and unwind in our Forest Spa while breathing the pure mountain air, listen to the birds and the stream in the distance.
In our Forest Spa, we use the all-natural TheraVine and TheraNaka products, which are produced in the Cape. TheraVine has grown over the years and are now supplying customers on an International scale.
Choose from a range of over twelve treatments. Couples massages are available, so book some quiet time with your "better half".
View the Forest Spa treatment list further down this page.
The award-winning TheraVine™ range was launched in 2004 after years of extensive research and experimenting with formulations and ingredients. The determination and efforts were finally rewarded when TheraVine™, the answer to healthy and radiant skin, saw the light of day and unlocked the power of natural beauty and skincare.
Hiking TrailsOne of our unique activities at Forest Creek are the Hiking Trails in the “Cloud Forest” due to the flora and fauna growing in this magical unique environment. 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.
Marked trails meander through the forest, along the stream. No charge. Click here for a Hiking Trails map.
