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.

Forest Bird Lodge is a beautiful place.

Will definitely recommend anyone to go here, it's a nice place to just rest. The cottage is very well equipped with all the necessities and they are also well equipped for power outages. We enjoyed the place and the hiking trails very much.

Forest Bird Lodge is 'n pragtige plek.

Sal definitief enige iemand aanbeveel om hierheen te gaan, dis 'n lekker plek om net te gaan rus. Die huisie is baie mooi toegerus met alle benodighede en hulle is ook goed toegerus vir kragonderbrekings. Ons het die plek en die staproetes verskriklik baie geniet.

Baie idilliese plekkie in die berge. Goeie fasiliteite en volledig toegerus. Pad nie geskik vir lae voertuie nie. Ons besoek was in Junie-maand en die kaggel en elektriese komberse het verhoed dat ons koud kry.

Wonderful weekend.

Everything was just the way we wanted it. Away from hustle and bustle in the forest. Unit was very convenient and clean and nothing bothered us. Anne received us fully informed and kindly. We are definitely going again to see the Knysna Loerie and Bush Owl and not just to hear it.

Wonderlike naweek.

Alles was net soos ons dit graag wou hê. Weg van gewoel in die bos. Eenheid was baie gerieflik en skoon en niks het ons gepla nie. Anne het ons volledig ingelig en vriendelik ontvang. Ons gaan beslis weer om die Knysna Loerie en bosuil te sien en nie net te hoor nie.

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.

The best accommodation.

I enjoyed my stay at Forest Bird Lodge a lot. Anne and Rob are very helpful and made me feel at home. It was piece of heaven on earth, I can't wait to return. We looked for the Cape parrots but we couldn't find them. Hope to see them next time.

Ek het regtig ongelooflik lekker gebly by Forest Bird Lodge. Anne en Rob is baie behulpsaam en het my dadelik tuis laat voel. Dit is werklik 'n stukkie hemel op aarde, ek kan nie wag om weer terug te gaan nie. Het die Kaapse papegaaie gesoek, maar kon hulle ongelukkig nie opspoor nie. Hoop om hulle volgende keer te sien.

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.

10 uit 10 vir geen TV. Jou gedagtes kry kans om ver paaie te loop in die bos se stilte en die gefluit van die voëls en ape bring jou net terug na die realiteit. Wow, dis mooi hier in die kloof.

Fantasties - bo verwagting!

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! Ideale wegbreek van die stad vir die natuurliefhebber, omring met stilte en vrede.

Fantastiese wegkom in die middel van 'n klein woudtjie.

Ek kan die plekkie hoogs aanbeveel. Dit is belangerik om te weet watter tipe wegbreekplekkie jy opsoek is na. Daar is nie TV of WiFi nie. Hierdie is 'n plekkie in die wonder natuur. Baie oulike staproetes. Die krag was af weens 'n storm toe ons gebly het en nogsteeds is die plekkie baie goed ingerig en was glad nie 'n ongerief nie. Ek sal deur en deur die plekkie aanbeveel.

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.

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.

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.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

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.

Die houthuis in Forest Bird Lodge bied alles wat jy kan nodig kry. Vars, wit linne, diep pootjiesbad, heerlike kaggel en wouduitsig uit al die vensters. Die staproetes is mooi en eienaar se vriendelike hond is 'n bonus-gids op elke staptog! Beslis aan te beveel!

Dit was 'n heerlike wegbreek! So rustige omgewing met die mooiste staproetes. Was mal oor hulle hond Shadow wat gereeld die staproetes saam met ons aangedurf het. Plekkie is oulike en goed uitgelê. Baie lekker ons batterye herlaai.

Peaceful, comfortable accommodation in a beautiful area.

The hiking trails on the premises to the waterfalls is an absolute must. Comfortable walk through the bush and over and across the clear water of the stream. The nature is absolutely incredible. The fireplace keeps the place nice and warm during the cold nights.

Rustige, gemaklike verblyf in 'n pragtige omgewing.

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.

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.

'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.

Very nice, very pretty and value for money.

It was very nice. It is a beautiful place and we had nice walks and saw a lot and had a good rest. Shadow came to visit frequently and we made a nice fire in the fireplace. We slept wonderfully!

Baie lekker, baie mooi en waarde vir geld.

Dit was baie lekker. Dis 'n mooi wêreld en ons het lekker geloop en baie gesien en goed gerus. Shadow het gereeld kom kuier en ons het lekker vuur gemaak in die kaggel. Ons het baie lekker geslaap!

Baie lekker ervaring.

Die gemaklike verblyf, stilte en bos-atmosfeer laat toe dat jou lewens batterye gelaai kan word. Die stapgeselskap van Shadow, die inwonende hond, het die stap op die goedgemerkte bospaaie verheerlik. Sien uit om weer daar te kan gaan rus.

Het ons besoek daar vreeslik geniet. Dis 'n pragtige plek in die woud, met 'n snoesige atmosfeer en baie vriendelike gasheer en -vrou.

'n Paar dae se wegbreek uit die besige dag-tot-dag roetine.

Kan dit aanbeveel vir enigiemand wat 'n paar dae net rustig wil wees. Die mooiste natuurskoon en baie vriendelike ontvangs. Net wat ons nodig gehad het.

Ons het in die houthuisie gewoon en dit bied totale rus en vrede.

Forest Bird Lodge se houthuisie en die vriendelike Anne en Rod is al wat mens nodig het vir 'n rustige wegbreek in die bos.

Ons het 2 nagte oorgeslaap by Forest Bird Lodge se houtkothuis. Het dit baie geniet.

Forest Bird Lodge is lieflike oornagakkommodasie vir natuurliefhebbers. Die kloof is baie mooi en die staproete tot by die waterval is 'n moet. Die buitestort is heerlik as dit warm is! Ons het net probleme gehad met warm water as ons wou bad/stort - die geiser het nie lekker gewerk nie. Die netheid van die kothuis kan opgradeer word.

A peaceful and tranquil setting for the romantics and forest lovers.

There was a miscommunication with the chalet designation originally assigned to us, but we spend the second night in the correct chalet.

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.

Brilliant experience and absolutely worth to it get away from the hussle and bussle of the city.

I would heartily recommend Forest Bird Lodge, especially of your intention is to take it easy for a few days. It is a very quiet get-away with absolutely breath-taking views, and the magnificence of nature. The service was excellent and our hosts very friendly and helpful. Can't complain about a thing. (PS. The outside showers are the trump card!!!)

Heerlik skoon en vars - hou so aan!

Heerlik gekuier! Die huis is puik toegerus, en die toerusting is alles in 'n puik toestand. Ons kan dit werklik aanbeveel! Een wenk: Neem vuurmaakhout of kole saam. Die woudhout is 'n groot frustrasie as mens 'n vleisie op die kole wil gooi!
