Getting to Forest Creek Lodge, Dullstroom

Forest Creek nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains below Dullstroom, which is the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range.

High up on the solid rock face of the Mpumalanga escarpment is a gorge which rips straight into the rock. The gorge is softened by the shrubs and trees which have grown in this malaria-free zone over millennia, watered by the boulder-strewn creek that bubbles with the purest, cleanest water imaginable.
