The Grand Old Lady is a suitable title for this Forever Resort. Although we felt as though we had stepped back in time it was still a lovely experience. The Staff were also very nice and accommodating. We will definately be back.

A most wonderful, scenic journey from Tzaneen through the most amazing forest and vistas to reach an equally outstanding resort. What a pleasure to be in such a beautiful, extremely peaceful environment and we even saw some Samango monkeys up close!! A trip well worthwhile.

Hi, yes the Cottages are equipped with a DSTV decoder showing a Hotel Bouquet . You can also bring your own decoder and smart card and we can assist you to connect it to the dish if you want to watch all the channels you have at home but please remember if you would like to do this you must bring your decoder and your smart card along. The Cottages are fully equipped with everything from a Microwave to a coffee Machine. The units are fully serviced daily for your convenience and there is a small shop that supplies the very basic needs. A word of caution as the petrol station in Pilgrims Rest is closed please full up as you come through Lydenburg or Sabie depending on which route you take. Please note that when coming from Gauteng on the N4 please take the Belfast off ramp and travel to Lydenburg via Dullstroom DO NOT take the Machododorp of ramp (if you are traveling using a GPS it will show this as the shortest route)this route is under construction and is terrible at the moment. If you have any questions please call the lodge on 013 768 1241

"Choose a ground level room if you are a light sleeper due to bird noise in the upper (thatch covered) rooms."
"Stay somewhere else"
"the granny chalet"
"Best to travel in a 4X4 vehicle"
"Family rooms with cozy fireplaces and hairdryers! The campsite looked very basic. Self-catering holiday homes looked great for big groups."
US$79 - US$173 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
