About Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge

Kurisa Moya is only 3 to 4 hours from Johannesburg, but the privacy and tranquillity offered at this Nature Lodge will truly restore your spirit. Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge is a 422 hectare property near Tzaneen, Polokwane and Magoebaskloof in Limpopo, South Africa.

Kurisa Moya is perched on the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment, so it has mesmerising views out over the lowveld. This soulful place embraces a pristine indigenous forest with massive moss-covered trees where ancient Yellow-woods carry an energy all of their own. Burbling streams make their way over boulders to the dams below. Here, nature's tranquillity is broken only by booming Samango monkeys, croaking crimson-winged Knysna Turacos and Bushbuck barks.

ACCOMMODATION

Kurisa Moya has mountains, rivers, indigenous forests and bushveld and offers accommodation in 3 unique venues - each private and tranquil. Activities include 7 marked walking paths, hiking trails, guided birding walks with a Birdlife SA accredited guide, 4x4 sunset drives, massages and fly-fishing. You could book a Forest Lodge cabin, 3 metres up in the canopy of the indigenous forest, surrounded by magnificent trees, animals and birds. Alternatively, soak up the views at the earthy Thora Boloka Cottage, on the mountain's edge overlooking Kudu's River Valley.

Otherwise, the Farmhouse is perfect for family get-togethers or fun weekends away with a group of friends. It has 5 en-suite bedrooms, huge kitchen, lounge and dining-room, a wrap-around pation and private gardens with plunge pool. Each venue is kitted-out for self catering or meals can be provided for you. Activities, tours and transfers can be organised.

Whichever venue you choose, you can be sure of privacy, tranquility and the sense of having your soul restored. There is something powerfully restorative in being surrounded by ancient trees in an untouched forest and by being all alone in this tranquil place. Silence, peace and beauty all combine to restore the soul. There are very few places these days where you can drive for a few hours, stay for a weekend and return to real life with a feeling that your spirit is full to the brim and that the world is a magical place.

Verified reviewexcellent

I needed to get away from it all - the busy, hectic schedule of city life. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place than Kurisa Moya's Forest Lodge. Not only did I truly relax, but between the magical, enchanting Tree Tops and the unique sounds of nature, I have found my soul again. I would much rather selfishly keep this exclusive, private hideaway from myself. A unique experience! You will definitely be seeing me on a regular basis! Thank you.

Verified reviewvery good

The farmhouse is a perfect hydeaway. Beautiful view, evenings around the fireplace under the lights of candles, excellent for playing cards or board games in family. Trails are short or medium, but those in the endogenous forest are delicious The bird walk with David is really great, you will learn a bunch of things on the forest
