Serenity Forest Lodge

Serenity Forest Lodge is set in the valley of a private Eco Reserve, and surrounded by mountains. It is just outside the town of Malelane, and a mere 19 kilometre’s from the entrance to the world-renowned Kruger National Park. It is also a short drive to Swaziland (Matsamo Border Post), and only some 90 minutes from Mozambique’s Capital, Maputo. As the Lodge is approximately 250 metres higher that the neighbouring Park, there is better year-round ambient temperature.

There is a choice of accommodation, with 6 Forest View Suites, with private decks, and set in the canopy forest, with beautiful views, and the 3 Lake View Suites, with private decks, overlooking the lake, and surrounding mountains. One of the Lake View Suites is larger, and can accommodation a family of 4. All accommodation is en suite, and has a mini-bar, teas/ treats, and is equipped with fans, heaters, and safes.

You can look forward to some fine dining at Serenity Forest Lodge, with cuisine that is a fusion of African and International dishes. Enjoy gourmet dinners, and full English breakfasts.

The indigenous canopy forest covers almost half of the 1 300 hectare property, with the remaining land covered in grasslands, and mountainous terrain. This is home to a good variety of antelope species from eland, wildebeest, kudu, impala to the diminutive duiker. You also have the chance to see zebra, chacma baboon and vervet monkey.

Guests can enjoy 3 walking trails in the forest surrounding the Lodge, where there are cascading waterfalls, and breath-taking views. The area is also a paradise for birders, as there are a number of species including the beautiful narina trogon, which breeds in the Reserve. You can also experience spectacular sun set on the mountains, with views stretching to Swaziland, Mozambique at the Park itself. Private picnics can be arranged in the forest, on a secluded deck, completer with hammocks. You can also just relax at the Lodge in and around the swimming pool.

Serenity Forest Lodge is also an excellent base from which to explore the area, if you are a self-drive enthusiast. There are local craft shops, elephant back safaris, hot air ballooning, cultural village visits, and golf courses, all within easy reach of the Lodge.

The Lodge can also arrange guided visits to the Kruger National Park (full or half-day excursions), and full day tours to both Swaziland and Mozambique. There is also an option of full day Panorama Tour to see some of the breathtaking scenery of the area, such as Godís Window, the Three Rondavels, and Blyde River Canyon.

You can also pamper yourself with beauty treatments, which are arranged in the privacy of the deck of your Suite.
