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.

          Ladies toilet kept running, other guests don't adhere to pulling up the handle, just replace the urinal appliance. Lack of reception attendance. Lack of security. But the overall upkeep is neat and tidy. Dustbins were not emptied.

          Such a lovely place to stay, serene and close to necessary amenities, cabins very accommodating and fully equipped. Have never experienced such great service and would like to visit again some time soon. 🙂

          The hosts were very friendly, the camping sites were neat and had ample space. The bathrooms were kept as clean as possible but could do with a bit of an upgrade, if only for privacy. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again

          Excellent value for money. With a little money and tlc the bathroom can be drastically improved. Will come back
