Whimsical.

It was magical, much needed. I loved the hike. It was raining, which made it look like a scene from a movie. The host received us, and he was helpful.

Rustig in die bos.

Jy kan rustig op die stoep sit met 'n boek of bordspeletjie en vir die natuur kyk of een van die wandelpaadjies na die watervalle in die kloof aandurf.

Het die natuur en met al haar geluide vreeslik geniet. Voel heeltemal afgesluit van die buitewêreld af, wat dit ideaal gemaak het om af te sluit en te rus.

Perfekte bos wegbreek.

Ons was twee pare, met twee driejarige seuntjies. Die cabin is perfek toegerus en baie ruim. Kan ure daar spandeer en net die natuur inneem. Die voetslaanpaaie is baie mooi en veilig. Die cabin is naby aan baie dinge. Sal enige tyd weer teruggaan.

Fantastic area, picture perfect. Enjoyed the hiking trail to the waterfall.

Location is excellent, hiking trail was great. Everything was great except: If the owners can pay attention to the house's interior (maintenance) it will be 100%. Cleanliness is very disappointing. Shower black on sides below. Substance! Maintenance must be done! Frying pan needs to be replaced. Pots need a good scrub. Grilling utensils outside were dirty. Double bed needs to be replaced.

This was a beautiful stay.

What a great and green place. In the morning we were awoken by monkeys and birds singing. Stream sound next to our bedroom. Nice walking trails that start at the Cabin. You really feel like you are in the rainforest! The kitchen is well equipped and it has a nice fireplace, there are also a few board games, really a great place. We recommend it!

Ontspanne wegbreek.

Ons het in die Log Cabin tuisgegaan vir 2 nagte en het ons tydjie daar baie geniet. Die plek se ligging in die middel van die woud is perfek en ons het dit geniet om die omgewing te verken d.m.v die gemerkte staproetes. Dit het die 2de oggend onophoudelik begin reën maar dit het ook bygedra tot 'n regte tropiese reënwoud gevoel. Die cabin self was baie netjies en gerieflik met alles wat mens mag nodig kry.

Relaxing getaway.

We stayed in the Log Cabin for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time there. The place's location in the middle of the forest is perfect and we enjoyed exploring the area using the marked walking trails. It started to rain non-stop on the 2nd morning but this also added to a real tropical rainforest feel. The cabin itself was very neat and comfortable with everything you might need.

'n Hoogtepunt in ons vakansie in die provinsie oor Desember.

Aangesien ons natuurliefhebbers is, was die omgewing met sy lieflike uitsigte, wandelpaaie met kabbelende waterstrome en watervalletjies oral, 'n onverbeterlike ontdekking. Daarby was die kothuis waarin ons gebly het goed toegerus met alles wat 'n mens nodig het om gerieflik te kuier en blinkskoon en netjies. 'n Bonus was die stoepie en buite-stort. Ons beplan om binnekort met 'n groter groep mense vir 'n naweek daar tuis te gaan.

As we are nature lovers, the surroundings with its lovely views, walking paths with babbling streams and waterfalls everywhere, was an unbeatable discovery. In addition, the cottage we stayed in was well equipped with everything one needs to have a comfortable visit and was sparkling clean and tidy. A bonus was the porch and outdoor shower. We are planning to go home there for a weekend with a larger group of people soon.

Lieflike wegbreek in die natuur.

Die lodge was baie gerieflik toegerus. Ons het niks nodig gekry nie. Die eienaars doen baie moeite om die pad en lodge in goeie toestand te hou. Selfs met beurtkrag het ons altyd ligte kon aansit as gevolg van battery-aandrywing. Ons het lekker ontspan op die lieflike, groot stoep en net na die voëls en die kabbel van die waterstroom geluister. Dis regtig lieflik tussen die woude. Die eienaars se hond het bietjie kom kuier en saam die staptoete aangepak. Ek beveel Forest Bird Lodge ten sterkste aan. Ons sal definitief weer gaan kuier om ons batterye te herlaai.

Lovely getaway in nature.

The lodge was very comfortably equipped. We didn't find anything we needed. The owners go to great lengths to keep the road and lodge in good condition. Even with load shedding we were always able to turn on lights due to battery power. We had a great time relaxing on the lovely, large porch and just listening to the birds and the lapping of the water stream. It's really lovely in the woods. The owners' dog came for a visit and started the walk together. I highly recommend Forest Bird Lodge. We will definitely visit again to recharge our batteries.

Beautiful, well furnished place in the forest. We should have booked a second night.

Hiking trail map is somewhat confusing, especially since one is in the bush. Looking down the valley towards Tzaneen is north, but translating that to the map was difficult. Maybe the use of colours in combo with line types [- - - and -. - . and - - . - - etc] will help. We found a waterfall, but not certain if it was Mark's or the other one.

My new favourite destination!

Words cannot even begin to describe just how beautifully peaceful it is at Forest Bird Lodge. We will most definitely be back as soon as possible! The cabin is neat and comfortable with everything you will need for your stay. The beds are super comfy and the hiking trails are clearly marked! Loved everything about our stay! Officially our new favourite destination! See you soon!

Absolute vrede en eenvoud in die hart van die oerwoude.

‘n Wonderlike ervaring in die woude. Die verblyf is rustig en stil en eenvoudig en die kombuis het alles wat jy sou nodig hê. Die gasstoof en gasyskas is goeie alternatiewe vir wanneer die krag af is. Daar is ontsettend baie inligting beskikbaar vir voëlkykers en daar is baie om te doen in die omgewing. Anne hulle is altyd byderhand met advies en informasie wat baie gerusstellend is. Die paaie is goed en ons het selfs in die donker met baie min moeite die plek gevind. Ek sien uit om nog baie by Forest Bird Lodge te gaan kuier.

A wonderful experience in the forests. The accommodation is peaceful and quiet and simple and the kitchen has everything you would need. The gas stove and gas cabinet are good alternatives for when the power is out. There is an awful lot of information available for bird watchers and there is plenty to do in the area. Anne they are always at hand with advice and information which is very reassuring. The roads are good and we found the place even in the dark with very little effort. I look forward to many more visits to Forest Bird Lodge.

Baie gerieflik, lekker gebly, personeel baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Kombuis lappies en gereedskap nie mooi skoon nie.

Verblyf was baie lekker. Natuurskoon is pragtig. Sal nie aanbeveel vir ouer mense wat sukkel om trappe te klim nie, aangesien jy self al jou bagasie en koelbokse met die trappe moet opdra, nie. Ons beveel aan dat die eienaar bietjie aandag gee aan instandhouding, badkamer se kraan lek vreeslik. Die kombuis waslappie en gereedskap nie mooi skoon nie, dus nie op standard nie.

It's a lovely place, a lovely chalet, the paths weren't clearly marked however, and the dogs the owners have scared me somewhat.

It's a lovely venue in a beautiful, tranquil destination. The bird life was lovely and the sounds of running water refreshing to the soul. The walks on the property are lovely but don't correspond to the given map. I highly recommend it and wish we could have stayed longer.

Ons was aangenaam verras oor die uitsonderlike mooi, groot stuk inheemse woud wat die houthuisie omring. Die huisie self was nog baie mooier as wat ons van die foto's verwag het. Pragtig ingerig en ruim met 'n lieflike uitsig oor die woud van die balkon af. Ons was net jammer ons kon nie vir langer bly nie. Sal beslis terug wees!

Ontvangs is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en verblyf is baie gerieflik sonder om die bosgevoel te ontneem.

Forest Bird Lodge is diep weggesteek in die kloof en jy kan maklik verdwaal as jy nie die aanwysings daarheen byderhand het en volg nie. Ons het net een nag oorgeslaap om die Kaapse Papegaaie te sien. Anne se aanwysings na die woud was 100% akkuraat en het ons direk na die plek geneem om hulle te sien.

Uitstekend.

Ons was in die omgewing vir my dogter se huwelik by Minas. Die verblyf by Forest Bird Lodge was heerlik en ontspannend - die gekabbel van die waterstroom en die natuurlike plantegroei naby dra daartoe by. Ons het wel gaan stap na die nabygeleë watervalle met die inwonende honde as toergidse - prettig! Wens ons het meer tyd gehad om te explore. Hulle moet dalk net noem dat die donkie (warm water) wel 2 keer per dag gestook word. En sekere potte in kombuis het nie deksels nie. Nogtans was die verblyf heerlik, dankie.

Outstanding.

We were in the area for my daughter's wedding at Minas. The stay at Forest Bird Lodge was delightful and relaxing - the babbling of the water stream and the natural vegetation nearby contribute to this. We did go for a walk to the nearby waterfalls with the resident dogs as tour guides - fun! Wish we had more time to explore. They may just have to mention that the donkey (hot water) is indeed scalded twice a day. And certain pots in the kitchen don't have lids. Nevertheless, the stay was wonderful, thank you.

Salig.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Die verblyf is baie netjies met als wat ons nodig gehad het. Die buitestort was heerlik. Dis baie rustig met pragtige natuurskoon. Ek sal dit enige tyd aanbeveel.

Goed uitgerus in 'n wonderlike omgewing.

As jy van die natuur hou, is hierdie beslis jou bestemming. Log cabin is goed toegerus, alles wat jy nodig het. Bring net jou kos. Luukse linne is 'n bonus. Buitestort is heel verfrissend. Watervalle, bergstrome en omgewing is 'n belewenis. Clivias en azalias is in blom en pragtig. Meer plaatjies om bome te identifiseer kan oorweeg word. Voëllewe was bietjie skaars. Honde, veral Shadow, die groot rifrug, vergesel en pas jou op tydens al jou staproetes in die omgewing. Kan die plek aanbeveel.

Well rested in a wonderful setting.

If you love nature, this is definitely your destination. Log cabin is well equipped, everything you need. Just bring your food. Luxurious linen is a bonus. Outdoor shower is very refreshing. Waterfalls, mountain streams and surroundings are an experience. Clivias and azaleas are in bloom and beautiful. More tags to identify trees can be considered. Bird life was a bit rare. Dogs, especially Shadow, the large ridgeback, accompany and watch over you during all your walks in the area. Can recommend the place.

Rus en vrede vir jou siel!

Dit was so wonderlike ervaring om by Forest Bird Lodge te kuier. Anne en haar mense is vreeslik vriendelik, warm en tegemoetkomend. Daar is baie lekker plekke om in die area te besoek. By die lodge self is daar pragtige tuine en wandelpaaie. Ons sal beslis weer teruggaan en sal dit sterk aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat Magoebaskloof wil besoek.

Hierdie is loshande die beste wegbreeknaweek in 'n lang tyd gewees en Forest Bird Lodge het dit help maak.

Ofskoon die kort grondpad na die Lodge nie van die beste is nie, was ons meer as net aangenaam verras met die plek. Alles is silwerskoon en alles werk. Die buite-stort is 'n wenner en die afwesigheid van TV 'n besliste pluspunt. Ek sou verkies om self die donkie soggens en saans vir warm water te stook, maar dis eerder 'n persoonlike voorkeur as kritiek. Yskas, gasstoof, mikrogolf asook 'n Weber op die stoep en 'n buitebraai maak al die ete-opsies toeganklik. Pragtige, goed onderhoude wandelpaadjies, 'n wonderlike voëllewe en die rustigheid wat net Magoebaskloof kan bied maak dit 'n móét vir almal wat lief is vir die natuur in al sy fasette.

This is easily the best getaway weekend we've had in a long time and Forest Bird Lodge made this a reality.

Although the gravel road tot he lodge isn't the best, we were more than pleasantly surprised with the place. Everything was sparkling clean and everything works. The outside shower is great and the absence of a TV definitely a bonus. I would have liked to pack the donkey for hot water myself, but that is more of a personal preference than critique. Fridge, gas stove, microwave and Weber on the porch and an outside braai gives you a lot of cooking options. Beautiful, well kept walking trails, wonderful bird life and the tranquillity that only Magoebaskloof can offer, makes this a must-see for anyone who loves nature in all its aspects.

Die staproetes op die eiendom na die watervalle is 'n moet. Gemaklike stap deur die bosse en heen-en-weer oor die stroom van helder water. Die natuur is absoluut onbeskryflik. Die kaggelvuur hou die plek lekker warm in die koue aande.

'n Magiese plek waar jy rus vir jou siel kan kry!

Ons het ons verblyf by Forest Bird Lodge regtig baie geniet! Die stilte rondom ons was amper oorweldigend, behalwe vir die geritsel deur die bome en die ligte gedruis van die stroompie wat nie ver van ons af geleë was nie, en net wat ons nodig gehad het om weg te kom van die stad se gedruis. Die Log Cabin waar ons gebly het was baie goed toegerus met alles wat ons nodig gehad het en baie netjies! Daar is 'n lekker kaggel en vuurmaakhout beskikbaar. Ons het 'n bietjie gesukkel om in en uit te kom met ons motor waar die pad bietjie ongelyk was, maar dit was absoluut die moeite werd en regtig pragtig! Jy is omring deur inheemse bosse en voëltjies wat in die bos "wegkruip"! Ons sal definitief weer besoek wanneer ons in die area is.

A magical place where we could relax!

We enjoyed our stay at Forest Bird Lodge so much! The quiet and tranquility was almost overwhelming. Apart from the wind in the trees and the sound of the stream nearby, there was no noise. It was just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Log Cabin we stayed in was equipped with everything we needed and it was very neat! There is a nice fireplace available. We had trouble getting in and out with our vehicle where the road was a bit uneven, but it was definitely worth it and so beautiful! You are surrounded by indigenous plants and birds that "hide" in the bush! We will definitely visit Forest Bird Lodge again when we are in the area.

Perfekte vir wegkom van die stad.

Forest Bird lodge is 'n weggesteekte stukkie hemel vir die wat wil wegkom van die gejaag van die stad. Ek sal dit aanbeveel vir enige gesin of paartjie wat kwaliteit tyd wil spandeer saam met mekaar, weg van die afleiding van tegnologie en te veel dinge om te doen. Die stappie na die rivier is 'n moet, maar pak 'n waterbottel saam in. Die laaste stukkie om te ry na die verblyf is wel nie geskik vir karre met 'n lae profiel of min krag nie.

Perfect for getting away from the city.

Forest Bird lodge is a hidden piece of heaven for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I would recommend it to any family or couple who want to spend quality time with each other, away from the distraction of technology and too many things to do. The walk to the river is a must, but pack a water bottle with you. The last bit of driving to the accommodation is not suitable for cars with a low profile or low power.
