Nature is all around at Sand Forest Lodge. We needed a stopover between Mkhuze and St Lucia and Hluhluwe seemed just right. Better still Sand Forest Lodge nestles in its own spacious estate very close to False Bay Park. We had only booked a night but would have been happy to spend the week there. The gardens are beautiful with many interesting (labelled) trees dotted around the parkland and clearly much enjoyed by the wildlife as by us, the visitors. 'Falcon Cottage' was charming with its intriguing furniture, pictures and artefacts. The comfort of the bed, the cooking facilities and the outlook from the patio were all that we could hope for. But just a short drive from the security gate, we could easily reach False Bay Park to enjoy the extensive walks, a safe place to be on foot without the restrictions of many other parks and game reserves
