Overview

STAY 2 NIGHTS MID WEEK AND GET THE 3RD NIGHT FREE!
Forest Cottage nestles within the gorge, set in a private nature reserve. The gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown in this malaria-free zone.

HIKING TRAILS
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 Cinamon 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.

The Forest cottage is 1/2 a kilometer from the lodge and is totally private.

This inter-zonal habitat allows tree enthusiasts the opportunity of identifying many uncommon species of trees, shrubs, orchids and ferns.

The cottage is a rustic fully equipped self-catering cottage, with a fridge/freezer, microwave we provide towels, soap, tea, coffee, all you need to bring is your food, clothes shampoos. it has limited DSTV and fireplace in the lounge.

The cottage comprises of 1 queen bedroom en-suite (bath and toilet, with the shower over the bath), another small bedroom with single bed and a double sleeper couch in the lounge.

We provide firewood for the fireplace and braai, should you wish to braai on charcoal, then please bring

Guest Comments

Forest Cottage is rustic, but just what you need if you want to get away from life. Its just you, the birds,trees,mountains and the stream. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The only problem was that our stay was way too short. The service from the lodge was excellent. With no cellphone reception at the cottage, they kept coming to check on us by bike to see if we needed anything. Very enjoyable stay indeed. Thanks so much for letting us be part of Forest Cottage and your beautiful retreat.
- Michele Du Preez

The road to the lodge is extremely poor, even having a 4x4 the going was slow. The lodge is well presented but we were disappointed with the quality of the Forest Cottage. The hot water had to be fixed upon arrival because of mud in the system. The location is really good, being right in the forest and very quiet.
