Forest Creek Lodge & Spa

Forest Creek nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, 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. (A question often asked is where are you? Our reply is, if one was in Dullstroom and "jumped off the mountain", you would land in our gorge.) Dullstroom surrounds. For the international traveller, 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 tranquillity of the bush. At Forest Creek, guests will dine on a four-course d'hte dinner served in our candle-lit dining room, as well as a choice of seven breakfast menus. We also have a small menu for lunch and weather permitting, we will cook on the braai. For those who wish to hike, lunch packs are available, and 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 and weather permitting, guests can enjoy meals and drinks outside on the veranda overlooking the valley. One of our unique activities at Forest Creek is 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 km, 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 Loeries 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 simply 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. On this magnificent piece of land we hope we have catered for everyone, from luxury guest suites at the Main Lodge (The suites are not attached to the lodge they are free standing units) to the Forest Cottage, Beach cottage, Sunbird and Bee Eater self-catering options. Forest Creek Lodge is also a haven for honeymooners, celebrating your first, fifth or fiftieth, you will be inspired by the romance of this incredibly exclusive, private place. If you take the self-catering option you are welcome to book meals and activities at the lodge, we supply firewood. For Self- catering guests meals can be booked at the lodge, Dinner is a 4 course meal and seven breakfast menu's to choose from. Dinner and Breakfast is included if you are staying in one of the lodge suites. All the units and suites are serviced daily, and Turn down service is done at night in the lodge suites.Activities include; Bush bath - set in a secluded spot, enjoy a 'bath' in the bush, with lots of bubbles. Forest spa - indulge yourself in our private spa overlooking the gorge, go home feeling relaxed and stress free. Gazebo romantic private dinner - spoil your loved one for a totally private candle lit dinner under the gazebo. Many a proposal of marriage has been accepted in this lovely setting! Hikers picnic; a picnic packed in a rucksack, get ready to hike to the waterfall! Lazy picnic; a picnic set out for you in a private spot, with champagne, a good one for the romantic at heart. Hiking; marked trails through the forest, along the stream on the way to the waterfall. Bird watching; we have a prolific variety of uncommon species of birds that can be seen, including a resident pair of black eagles. Horse riding, 4 km down the hill, book a ride in our scenic valley. Clay pigeon shooting; an interesting and testing range for the novice and experienced shooters.

  • "The beauty of nature."

    08 April 2018

    "Loved the room and the whole lodge's beauty and tranquility.The fact that there is no cellphone sugnal in 2018, is unexceptable. This is every human basic right, in this day and age. This should most certainly be mentioned on any website that hosts this establishment..The information given about wi-fi access, fascilities eg the spa etc, was non-existent. I almost got the feeling they ( the staff) did not want us to use there fascilities?Breakfast was outstanding, BUT dinner was bad home cooking and TOTALLY overprized.Then again, the inly person that knows anything is Paulus , the 'manager' and that includes the owner (lady). Without Paulus this place would not function!ALL websites that host this lodge should make it priority information to inform guest of how EXTREMELY bad the road is!!!!It's a nightmare!We had a wedding at the Cowshed and were nervous the whole time about the bad, dangerous road back. We had to leave early and did not enjoy the wedding, for which we travelled 5 hours, because the road back to Forest Creek Lodge, was like a mountain ahead of us.Also having to open and close 3 farm gates, dressed in fancy, expensive wedding attire, was notnice.So, maybe if you want a peaceful break,with ZERO communication with the outside world, travelling once there and back, it's worth it, but it being listed as possible accomodationfor wedding guests at the Cow shed,is almost a crime.We returned home on the Sunday, exhausted and totally stressed out."

    08 September 2014

    "We decided on the drop of a hat to visit the Dullstroom and Lydenburg area. The pin dropped on Forest Creek. It was a lovely grand experience. Their attention to detail is excellent, from the reception desk to the turn down of your room for the night. The food was excellent - the cook is a wizard. I will definitely go back in summer and look for fresh mushrooms and ferns."

Appreciated the camping cot and bedding for our baby. Not a lot of establishments cater for the needs of babies! Would however suggest that some kind of entertainment for older kids be brought in like a trampoline or jungle gym. We enjoyed our stay very much!"
