If ever you need to chill, de-stress or just recharge your batteries there is nowhere better than Serenity Forest. From the moment my wife and I arrived and were welcomed firstly by two curious giraffe who nonchalantly gazed down at us withtheir long lashed eyes and then to be met by a smiling young man with a port served in...

What an awesome place! No TV or cell phone coverage allows you to really take in the magnificent scenery and relax. A useful tip. The sand road goes on for 13 kilometers once you have turned off the N4. Took us about 30 minutes at a comfortable pace.

Once off the main road, the drive up to the lodge winds through the mountains and forests giving one a sense of total seclusion. The dirt road was a slight challenge for our 3 series BMW but nothing to difficult. The scenery on the way up to the lodge made the drive very pleasant and enjoyable. Upon arrival at the... More

The drive from Johannesburg to Malelane was exquisite in itself.We arrived at the lodge after a scenic road through the forest,seeing wild game, a few bush bick and even giraffes.we were welcomed by Andries who made our stay a pleasurable one. The rooms were superp and the menu delicious. A highly recommended getaway..I will defiantly be back

I've spend one night at the lodge and felt completely recharged. No cellphone reception television or any distractions. The rooms are all very nicely appointed that make you feel completely one with nature. The bathrooms are nice and spacious with all the amenities you need. Very nice touch is the welcoming cherry and hot towel on arrival. Great experience!

One of the really unique and truly hidden secrets of the Krguer area. Quite unlike any other place I have stayed in. Once you take the turn off from Malelane, the dirt road winds slowly from the sugar cane plains through foothills of bush until you reach the denesley forested mountain gorge. As you reach the gate of their 850... More

Access from Malelane is via a long treacherous and badly signposted dirt road which was difficult even in a 4 by 4. Accommodation may have been adequate in summer months but inappropriate on a cold winter's night as the rooms are not all solid structures. Service was poor except for the eager chef who went the extra mile.

A little piece of paradise away from the city hussle and bussle. No need for music as the tranqiuility is filled with the sound of birdsong from dawn til dusk. From Room 6, tucked away in the forest, you are reminded of the crystal clean mountain stream that flows past the lodge with the soothing sound of cascading water. Great... More
