About Mac Mac Forest Retreat

Mac Mac Forest Retreat is centrally situated between Sabie, 1.5 km away from Mac Mac Graskop and Pilgrim's Rest in the picturesque Mpumalanga Escarpment area.

There is a swimming pool and hiking trails to various waterfalls in the area. The popular self-catering safari-tents sleep up to 4 people per tent and is well equipped with a fridge, kettle, microwave, braai-stand and en-suite bathrooms. The Campsites are equipped with electricity points, braai-stand and ablution facilitys. Mac Mac Forest Retreat also caters for day visitors.

The resort used to be a forestry station, but now has an option of self-catering safari-tents and campsites. The view of Mauchberg, the tranquil atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, and a central base to explore the popular escarpment area and Kruger National Park became known with time. The accommodation became more and more popular, and Mac Mac Forest Retreat underwent constant upgrading.

Beautiful scenery, helpful person that stayed there late to assist us with coming in and clean bathroom facilities. Campsite looked out over stunning mountain passes just past Sabie. Close to beautiful hikes and many waterfalls.

This is the spot where everyone takes their shots. Serious shutterbugs will be reaching for their polarising filters and best wide angle lens. Choose a clear day and you can see all the way to the Kruger National Park and Mozambique. Glance towards...
