This unique hideaway is a 422 hectare Fair Trade Tourism Eco Lodge near Tzaneen, Polokwane and Magoebaskloof in Limpopo Province. 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. Stay in one of the unique venues in different habitats – each private and tranquil. Meander along seven marked walking paths through five habitats or have the privilege of being guided through the forest with the top local Bird Guide in South Africa, David Letsoalo or Paul Nkhumane to see the elusive Black-fronted Bush-Shrike or Green Twinspot. End a beautiful day on a sunset 4×4 drive to the top of the world, learn the art of fly-fishing or join the rhythms of daily life in a Sotho village experience or Home Stay. 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.
