So Much to Do

Dargle Forest Lodge is the ultimate getaway for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle and just want to connect with nature at it’s finest. Sit back, relax in our beautiful natural forest and enjoy the vast views, cozy bonfires and go for strolls around the farm.

Explore the valley forest gorge, watching local wildlife including buck, monkeys, baboons, jackal, porcupines and the occasional civet. Bird watchers will also be in for a treat. Or just relax reading or doing yoga on your cabin deck. Start and end each day at the breathtaking sunrise and sunset viewpoints.

We have a communal lapa area which has:

Braai facilities
Kids play area
Bonfire pit
Undercover furnished area for relaxing

For those looking for a more active getaway the farm has various short trails for hiking enthusiasts, mountain bikers or trail runners.

The famous Dargle Icon iNhlosane mountain is accessible from Mount Park, about 4km away from us. Great for longer and more challenging hikes, with a variety of trails, ranging in distances and required fitness.
