About Isibindi Forest Retreat

Isibindi Forest Retreat is an African-style getaway within the Garden Route, only 15 minutes outside of George. Earthy interiors and green open spaces adds to an authentic bushveld experience...

The accommodation consists of several log cabins, all with sea and forest views, comfortably decorated in an African-bushveld theme. Each chalet offers s/catering facilities and a lovely private deck . Bathrooms have showers only.

Enjoy the tranquility of grazing game, such as the blue wildebeest and zebra which roam freely a few meters from the log cabin patios. Situated only 10 kilometres outside George, Isibindi Forest Retreat is an ideal base from which to explore the attractions of the Garden Route.

The deck, with sunken firepit is the perfect way to relax, unwind and listen to the sounds of the bush. There are many walks for you to enjoy within our tranquil environment, as well as in the surrounding area.

Conference Venues: We have conference facilities for up to 20 delegates, with projector, whiteboards and internet access . Lovely cozy venue and a beautiful deck for sundowners after a long day of work!

          We arrived late and it was dark. On arrival Marteen the host welcomed us very warmly. The cabin was clean and neat. The basic utensils we more than enough for our needs. The additional facilities like the deck chairs, fire boma and braai facilities at the cabin was great .The next morning we were pleasantly surprised at the animals grazing outside our door and the beautiful seaview. The host went out of their way to make us feel comfortable by sharing information of what to do and places to visit. It is indeed a private retreat and well worth a visit.

          I loved the location and view from the chalet overlooking the sea. I loved being close to the forest. The highlight for me was the hike down to the rocks by the sea. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the grounds and sitting on the chalet deck.Establishments Response:Hi ShanaazThank you for your lovely review. We enjoyed having you ladies with us and are glad that you could fit in some leisure time to enjoy the property during your busy schedule.Hope you visit us again...Warm regardsMarcelle
