The warm welcome from the Serenity team set the tone for the weekend away, welcome cherry and cool cloth to wipe our hands and refresh post the drive. Off the Malelane road, four by four or car with higher wheel base is recommended. 5 star meals and accomodation. Taking in a drink before dinner at the bar every night, chef... More

Friends and I were on an Eastern Transvaal bush drive, and happened upon the Serenity Forest Eco Reserve.....the place is magical! Well run, off the beaten track and with the most unexpectedly good food - I rate the chef's Eggs Benedict one of the best I've ever had...and his steaks were perfect! Accommodation is tree houses set apart from each... More

There is no better place if you need peace and calm. We spent 4 nights at Serenity Forest lodge and we wouldn't mind to stay longer. It was an awesome experience. Tyronne and his team went out of their way to let us feel at home and welcome. The rooms are beautiful and clean and sleeping with the constant forest... More

We stumbled across Serenity Forest Lodge by mere chance on Good Friday whilst trying to make a last minute Easter Weekend booking. Thank God we did. From the gracious telecom with Agnes to the walk up the gushing river, everything was truly serene the epitome of relaxation. The Five star decorated rooms are magnificently placed in the forest with the... More

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.
