Some of our reviews on TripAdvisor and Booking.Com

“The location was great so much to do and the atmosphere was beautiful.” – Nazir

“Place was absolutely fantastic. Wished we could have stayed longer.”- Jean

“Cannot recommend this place highly enough, assuming you enjoy indigenous forests, mist belt grassland, mountains, getting away from it all with some great walking, birding and botanising. Fabulous mtn biking potential, very comfortable and well equipped accomm, swimming in mountain pools. There are not too many places with this combo of features. High clearance vehicle will make access no problem. “- botaneek

“What a hidden treasure Rockwood Forest lodge is! A place where one can rest your soul, soak up nature and just enjoy the freedom of walking in this amazing part of KZN. We will definitely be back. Very comfortable accommodation and super friendly staff. Thank you.” – Lieze H
