I took my partner to Forest Creek for his birthday/romantic getaway. We had a warm welcome to out stunning fully equipped Bee Eater chalet. The hike was stunning and the view was beautiful as promised. The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the 4 course meal as its not value for money. Otherwise its the perfect escape with no cell...

we had an amazing weekend in the spectacular surrounds of Forest Creek Lodge. The clay pigeon shooting was a highlight and the hike along the river. We braved a swim in the refreshing mountain river. I would definitely recommend Forest Creek Lodge for the couple looking for adventure, romance and luxury. Unforgettable stay. A big thank you to Anita, Mush,Miriam... More

My husband and I stayed at Forest Creek Lodge over the Valentines weekend and we fell in love with the place. The setting amongst the mountains is absolutely stunning, and there were many activities to keep us occupied (we didn't have the time to do all that we wanted to, so we'll just HAVE to return!) The walks amongst the... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, we had the most wonderful four night stay in the Narina Suite, Anita's attention to detail, the great service by all staff members, especially the Manager "Paulos" made our stay one we will never forget,.

We went to Forrest Creek Lodge for a family getaway in July 2011. Luckily we used the SUV because the road is very bad to the lodge - and one is not warned before. I wouldnt have tried it with a car, but there was a few cars by the lodge. Extremely bumpy and lots of potholes. The staff was... More

Normally, before my girlfriend and I take a trip, we check the reviews on Trip Advisor, unfortunately, this time we didn't. We expected that if we are paying R1500 per person per night and the place advertises as a spa, it would be exceptional. Much to my dismay. I have travelled extensively and can recommend a few places in Mpumalanga... More

Yes, the location is lovely. though the road to get there is astonishingly bad! prices were ridiculous. meals weren't anything to shout about. at R250 per person (which is what they'd charge is you wanted to have 'dinner at the Lodge), it was a rip-off. we paid R6 k for 2 nights. 2 people in their 'honeymoon' suite. it was...

Forest Creek is in such a beautiful spot, the location is perfect, despite it taking 6 hours to get there due to traffic and potholes so big you could get lost in them, one popped tyre later we finally arrived. Most of the reviews warn cars of the road and that you need a 4x4, I have to agree, trying... More

We got engaged on our weekend at Forest Creek. Anita and staff were very effiicient and helpful with the arrangements. Our stay was great and would recommend it for a romantic getaway. The road does need attention , although our vehicle handeled it perfectly.

The Celebration of our Engagement was amazing at The Forest Creek Lodge! The booking arrangements were done quickly and professionally and we truly received a warm welcome from all upon our arrival. It has to be noted that the road up to the lodge is by far the worst we have ever driven and it really needs to be stated... More
