Moholoholo Forest Camp
nestles on the slopes of the 1,944 metres high Mariepskop, one of the highest peaks of the Drakensberg range in this area. This affords a breathtaking view of the towering mountains and vertical cliffs on one side and the rolling Eastern Transvaal Lowveld savanna towards Kruger Park on the other.
Moholoholo Forest Camp is ideally situated for day excursions to the Kruger National Park (Orpen Gate ± 60kms) Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Pilgrims Rest, Graskop, Sabie, each place known for either their beautiful waterfalls, views, history, shops (± 230kms for a round trip). Accommodation at Moholoholo Forest Camp
The Forest Camp comprises of 7 secluded double chalets and 1 family chalet all with en suite shower and bath as well as 2 Brick Chalets with en suite shower only. The main building is where the dining room and deck are situated. The deck overlooks a small shady waterhole under a canopy of large trees where Nyala and Bushbuck come to quench their thirst together with Samango monkeys under the watchful eyes of birds such as Green Twin spots, Paradise Fly Catchers and Pygmy Kingfishers. The waterhole is floodlit at night and visited by nocturnal animals such as Bushpig, Civet and Porcupine.
Our host and hostess’s sincere hospitality makes any visitor feel at home and “part of the family” within minutes after arriving. The lovely setting of the camp soon soothes away stress while the peace and quiet of unspoiled nature becomes a way of life.
Country-style cooking enhances the intimate atmosphere experienced at Forest Camp. All meals are served buffet style:
- Breakfast is served between 8:30 am to 9:30 am
- Lunch between 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm
- Dinner (either buffet or braai) at 7:00 pm
- Tea/coffee, rusks & cookies are available 24 hours a day.
As the concept at Moholoholo is based on the environment and nature, we do not have a swimming pool, television, radios, telephones or any shopping facilities. There is however a well-stocked shop, filling station and bottle store nearby at Kampersrus. Moholoholo is ideally situated for day excursions to the Kruger Park (Orpen Gate ± 60kms) Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Pilgrims Rest, Graskop, Sabie, each place known for either their beautiful waterfalls, views, history, shops (± 230kms for a round trip). Swadini Snake Park (15kms), Cheetah Breeding Project (16kms), Echo caves (±45kms), all a wonderful experience!

Very good value - clean, simple and cheap with a good breakfast thrown in. All the staff were friendly and cheerful. I left some clothing which was located - unusual these days.
We had a pleasant stay. Brought some of my hunting clients to the lodge and they where highly impressed. Great food, friendly staff and well experienced guides. We will definitely return next year.
