Really value for money but you actually get more than you pay for. Really pleasant and friendly owners and staff. Wonderful views, the trees and surroundings are amazing and not forgetting all the beautiful birds!

Absolutely loved my time at Sand forest lodge. Amazing bird life and buck and game roaming freely, stunning. Accomodation was fantastic, and very easy to access and close to everything you need in the area.

The lodge is very peaceful and although rustic very comfortable. The bird life is fabulous and would love to visit again in the summer months when the migrant birds have arrived. Sand Forest lodge is perfectly situated for visiting all the local KZN attractions.
