Private Lodges - Moholoholo Forest Camp

Moholoholo nestles on the slopes of the 1,944 metre high Mariepskop, one of the highest peaks of the Drakensberg range in this area. This affords a breathtaking view of the towering mountains and vertical cliffs on one side, and the rolling savanna towards Kruger Park on the other. Visitors to Moholoholo can experience both Lowveld woodland as well as indigenous mountainous rain forest without leaving the Game Farm.

The Forest Camp comprises of 7 secluded double chalets and 1 family chalet all with en suite shower and bath as well as 2 Brick Chalets with en suite shower only. The main building is where the dining room and deck are situated. The deck overlooks a small shady waterhole under a canopy of large trees where Nyala and Bushbuck come to quench their thirst together with Samango monkeys under the watchful eyes of birds such as Green Twin spots, Paradise Fly Catchers and Pygmy Kingfishers. The waterhole is floodlit at night and visited by nocturnal animals such as Bushpig, Civet and Porcupine.

Our host and hostess' sincere hospitality makes any visitor feel at home and "part of the family" within minutes after arriving. The lovely setting of the camp soon soothes away stress while the peace and quiet of unspoiled nature becomes a way of life. Country-style cooking enhances the intimate atmosphere experienced at Forest Camp.

During the day, game and bird viewing can be done on foot, as a number of easy walking trails are available. The hide at the main waterhole is one of the popular places to relax in the tranquility of the bush. At night guests are taken on a game drive in an open vehicle. A late afternoon drive can be arranged if it is available at the time.

Wildlife includes Sable, Waterbuck, Kudu, Eland, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Nyala, Bushbuck, Giraffe, Warthog, Bushpig, Leopard, Tsessebe, Civet, Serval, Caracal, and many others. The prolific bird life makes Moholoholo a bird watchers paradise. Moholoholo is not situated on a Big 5 game reserve but it offers a unique experience for eco-tourists.

A visit to the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is an unforgettable experience. A wide variety of birds and animals can be seen here, where Brian Jones and his team nurses and nurtures the injured and orphaned, rehabilitating them for release back to the wild. Guided tours through the Centre brings visitors in close contact with the rare and common species such as the lovely Crowned and Martial Eagles, Owls, Vultures and a variety of raptors, Serval, Duiker, Lions, Leopard and many other animals and birds.
