Having spent 2 weeks in the Kruger, Kurisa Moya was our last stop before returning home to the UK. We spent 2 nights there and the accommodation was superb, everything you could wish for and so quiet and peaceful. The weather could have been slightly kinder, it felt like we were back home when we braaied in the rain! Some wonderful walking, can definitely recommend the 'koppje walk with a view'. We had a days birding with Paul which allowed the keen birder amongst us to mop up on some of the birds he had missed. Paul worked incredibly hard and managed to find some difficult birds. We would definitely return to Kurisa Moya it's just a shame it's so far from the UK.

- Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge Guest Lodge Accommodation Restore your spirit Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge is only 3 - 4 hours from Johannesburg, but the privacy and tranquility offered at this Nature Lodge will truly restore your spirit. Kurisa Moya is a 422 hectare property in the Magoebaskloof area near Tzaneen, Polokwane in the Limpopo Province. Kurisa Moya is perched on the edge of the Drakensburg escarpment, so it has mesmerising views out over the lowveld. This soulful place embraces a pristine indigenous forest with massive moss-covered trees where ancient Yellow-woods carry an energy all of their own. Burbling streams make their way over boulders to the dams below. Here, nature's tranquility is broken only by booming Samango monkeys, croaking crimson-winged Knysna Turacos and Bushbuck barks. Kurisa Moya has mountains, rivers, indigenous forests and bushveld and offers accommodation in 3 unique venues - each private and tranquil.
