Kurisa Moya lies nestled in one of South Africa's very few remaning virgin forests. Here, the bird life is extraordinary, and the rare Samango monkeys thrive. A stay in one of the Forest Cabins is like balm for your body and soul. Imagine sitting on your verandah, high up among the trees, surrounded by a forest that is nearly a thousand years old. Wake up and see the Samango monkeys forage in the treetops above your bedroom window, and be calmed by the sounds of hundreds of birds.
Kurisa Moya has some of South Africa's best bird guides in residence, so if this is your passion you have come to the right place. But even beginner birders will thoroughly enjoy a guided walk through the ancient forest, learning not just about the many rare and endemic birds but also about the trees and plants that surround you. This is a truly unique experience!
You can chose to self-cater, or get a lovely home-cooked meal delivered to your cabin. Think hearty farm breakfasts and rich, South African traditional food such as stews and home baked bread for dinner. If you can drag yourself away from the magical forest, there are plenty of activities available in the area, from a visit to the village to hiking and mountain baking, or for the more adventurous: ziplining and absailing in the Letaba River Gorge.
