Description:

Self catering Accommodation in Haenertsburg (Magoebaskloof), Limpopo Province

Land of the silver mists

Nestling in the foothills of the unique, indigenous Black Forest and in the shade of spreading Tipuana trees, you will find the secluded and homely Black Forest Mountain Lodge situated in a malaria free area.

Experience silver mists, so soft and dense, you'll wonder if you've stumbled on 'Narnia', or night skies so clear, you might try to reach into the black velvet canopy and catch a star.

Drink in the perfume of pine-strewn, dappled paths that will wind you around three small dams, where mossy tracks invite you to rustle through a chestnut forest. Bring your mountain bike and accept our challenge to conquer these hills.

Set up camp in unspoiled indigenous surroundings, on a deck if you like, overlooking a small gorge. Enjoy early morning coffee with the sound of birds laughing, as they tease you and swoop over your sizzling bacon and eggs.

Get comfy in a cabin, put your feet up and enjoy a good book and feel like you're miles from nowhere and time does not exist. Tell us what birds you would like to see and we'll arrange for a bird guide to take you on a tour of our area.

Stable your own horse and hack till the tranquil beauty engulfs your soul, and allows your heart to hear the pine trees whispering "Hello....."

We'll supply a stable, some hay and buckets of fresh water for your equine friend.

We'll pack you a picnic basket if you'd like to make a day of it, or even if you'd like to spend the day at one of the attractive spots in our area.

Play volleyball or croquet on the front lawn. Canoe on our dam and watch the ducks go by. Sit on a chair or explore the garden and enjoy true peace and quiet. Take a walk through the Black Forest or Forest Glen. Enjoy scenery unique to the Magoebaskloof area.

For the fisherman, fishing in local rivers and Ebenezer dam is available.

At night, spy on the moon peeping through the tree tops. Take a romantic stroll in the shadowed garden, while moonbeams silver-tip the trees and shrubs. Listen to the sounds of silence and.... sleep deeply!!!

Aware... only in your dreams of a porcupine family rattling by and a drowsy old owl hooting softly in the majestic and brooding Black Forest .

We offer you peace! Our most valuable and sought-after commodity!! We invite you to take off your watches, turn off your cell phones and enjoy this amazing spot, as near to heaven as you can get on our stress-filled planet.
