Sunbird is a lovely self-catering unit ideally located near the Forest Creek Lodge, nestled in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, which is the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range.

Set in a private nature reserve of the Mpumalanga escarpment; the gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown in this malaria-free zone over millennia. It is only when one gets to the gate of Forest Creek Lodge that the rock-strewn grassland is left behind, one climbs up, and up, and enter this little enchanted world.

Sunbird Self-catering Unit comprises two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a living area. The first bedroom contains a queen-size bed and an en suite. The second bedroom contains a king-size bed that can be converted to twin beds on request, and an en suite. Snuggle under the percale cotton duvets and linen. A fan, electric blanket and heater are supplied.

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering. The unit also has a gas braai and weber braai for outdoor cooking. We supply Charcoal.

Come and enjoy some good food and wine, snuggled in front of our log fireplaces; or relax and be pampered in our Forest Spa. Clay pigeon shooting, spa treatments, and a 'bush bath' can all be booked during your stay. Meals can be booked at the Forest Creek Lodge.

If you take the self-catering option you are welcome to book meals and activities at the lodge, we supply firewood.
Dinner is a 4 course meal R250.00 and breakfast is R120.00 per person.

Activities include; Bush bath - set in a secluded spot, enjoy a 'bath' in the bush, with lots of bubbles.
Forest spa - indulge yourself in our private spa overlooking the gorge, go home feeling relaxed and stress free.

Gazebo romantic private dinner - spoil your loved one for a totally private candle lit dinner under the gazebo. Many a proposal of marriage has been accepted in this lovely setting!

Hiker’s picnic; a picnic packed in a rucksack, get ready to hike to the waterfall!

Lazy picnic; a picnic set out for you in a private spot, with champagne, a good one for the romantic at heart.
Hiking; marked trails through the forest, along the stream on the way to the waterfall.

Horse riding; 4 km down the hill, book a ride in our scenic valley.

Paardeplaats Nature Retreat

Remember the pre-1970 Kruger Park ambiance? No commercial noise, no cash registers. The smell of fresh air, wood smoke, paraffin, and creosote. The singing of birds and the cry of the jackal.

The laughter of children at play, while you cook a delicious meal on an open fire, and the friendly, helpful staff to escort you on arrival to your comfortable clean room. Add to this stunning escarpment, views and the freedom, peace, quiet, and safety of unspoiled nature, where the children can take Ouma and Oupa for safe, short, nature walks.

This is what we like to call “elegant simplicity” and “family therapy” à la Paardeplaats Nature Retreat, on the spectacular Longtom Pass/Route 37. Along the very tracks of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick and his dog Jock, lies Paardeplaats Nature Retreat, some 12 km from Lydenburg/Mashishing en route to Sabie.

Set high up in the Mpumalanga Drakensberg, at 2000 m above sea level with an annual rainfall of over 1000 mm per annum, this 770 hectare proclaimed nature reserve is a haven for birders, hikers, and serious nature lovers who enjoy elegant simplicity, so different from the city norms.

Built on the ruins of an 1870 miners' settlement is the restored 15-sleeper stone dwelling, set in total privacy overlooking a small trout dam, a beautiful valley, and mountains. Hidden amongst trees and the mining terraces are three restored stone units. Each room has a private view with its own unique character with stained glass windows.

We have six rooms available, but they can only be booked together as a whole unit. De Waterbrak, Gurneys, Kiepersol, and Jafrie can each accommodate two guests with either twin beds, a queen, or a king-size bed. Oribi can accommodate four guests in four single beds, and Suikerbossie can accommodate three guests in a king-size and a single bed. Please enquire about the rates for longer stays.

All six bedrooms are en-suite, with down or wool duvets on all the beds. Meals are prepared in the communal Miners Canteen with a kitchen so well-equipped that even professional chefs comment on it. Wood and gas stoves, two gas fridges and utensils to cater for up to 20 people, guarantee a farm-style cooking experience with most modern conveniences, except a microwave. When weather permits, the outdoor covered cooking hearth and large verandah is the place to relax and braai, soothed by the sound of running water and birdsong.

The fly-fisherman could be tempted to catch a trout, casting almost from the verandah, while the Jafrie Walking and Cycling Ramble is ideal family therapy for those who love nature. The not-so-lazy could pack a picnic basket or a rucksack and embark on one of seven different marked walking or mountain biking trails, totaling 25 km, or just amble down to the nearby waterfall.

One to six guests per two night weekend R4000. Seven to 12 guests per two night weekend R6000. Long weekend three-night stay, maximum of 15 guests R9000.
