    Default Mac Mac Forest Retreat

    Anyone camped here, any comments?
    Looks like a nice location to explore the area.
    Thanks.
    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, you’re missing the point.

    Thanks.
    Can you recommend some other nice camping/caravanning spot/s in the area?

    Merry Pebbels and Sabie River Camp in Sabie - both along the same river and close to the other.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Any security concerns at either Merry Pebbles or Sabie River Camp that anyone knows of?

    Merry Pebbles is very safe, they don't allow bikers in

    Never heard bad security things about either, but be aware - the area's environment is bush like. Heard of some issues when visiting the waterfalls in the area - try to go when there are lots of people around and dont go too late.
