About Forest Creek Lodge & Spa

The 4 star rated Forest Creek Lodge & Spa is located near Dullstroom and nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, which is the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Set in a Private Nature reserve of the Mpumalanga escarpment, the gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown over millennia in this malaria-free zone .

It is only when one gets to the gate of Forest Creek Lodge that the rock-strewn grassland is left behind and one climbs up, and up, and enters this little enchanted world. In winter enjoy some good food and wine snuggled in front of the log fireplaces, and go home feeling indulged.

Built in rock hewn from the surrounding hills, a magnificent lodge-under-thatch has been constructed with views of the gorge and the surrounding cliffs and mountain, within earshot of baboon barks echoing down the valley.

Enjoy your nights in one of the luxury suites. Crisp white pure cotton linen and dark wood finishes create the perfect ambience.

All the suites have DSTV, mini bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities and bathrobes for your comfort. While you’re there, arrange for some “me-time” in the spa.

Please note: to ensure your privacy, lodge suites are not at the main lodge, requiring a short walk to the communal lodge areas.

The self-catering options are:

  • Forest cottage - suitable for a couple with small children, totally private set 500 m away from the lodge, also has a fireplace.
  • Bee Eater self catering unit - is a huge romantic luxury room with a fireplace, suitable for a couple with small children.
  • The Sunbird self catering - can accommodate 4 adults, in 2 en-suite bedrooms with kitchen.
  • Forest Creek Lodge - is a haven for honeymooners - celebrating your first, fifth or fiftieth anniversary, you will be inspired by the romance of this incredibly exclusive, private place.
  • The Beach Cottage - this cottage that has stunning views of the Mountains and brings the ‘Beach to the Bush’.

Braai facilities are in all self catering units. Guests are welcome to book any meal and or activity at the main lodge.

A question that is often asked is “Where is Forest Creek”? The answers is “If you were in Dullstroom (the town closest to us as the crow flies) and jumped off the mountain, you would land in their gorge”.

Day visitors are welcome, and can book any of the activities.
