Moonshine on Whiskey Creek – forest getaway in The Crags

Moonshine on Whiskey Creek

Say hello to rest, quiet and nature on tap! Moonshine on Whiskey Creek is a rather magical forest getaway in The Crags, along The Garden Route. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll want to pack your bags and book your stay.
They have five self-catering forest cabins and one cottage. I stayed in Bushpig Cabin which felt like a cosy and welcoming haven, especially in the thunderstorm and hail on night one. Waking up to a view of endless green and indigenous forest was an absolute treat. Only to be topped with a pair of Knysna Loeries that came to visit and swoop between the trees.
I enjoyed the simplicity and rustic ambiance of the cabin which invites spaciousness and a sense of peace for me. There is a beautiful forest walk down to the river, as well as a swimming pool for summer days.
Moonshine on Whiskey Creek is situated in a great location for exploring the area. Just 14km from Plettenberg Bay and 17km from Nature’s Valley beach makes it ideal for getting around.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post with recommendations on what to do in the area.

The Cure For It All 

Go gently today, don’t hurry
or think about the next thing. Walk
with the quiet trees, can you believe
how brave they are—how kind? Model your life
after theirs. Blow kisses
at yourself in the mirror
especially when
you think you’ve messed up. Forgive
yourself for not meeting your unreasonable
expectations. You are human, not
God—don’t be so arrogant.
Praise fresh air
clean water, good dogs. Spin
something from joy. Open
a window, even if
it’s cold outside. Sit. Close
your eyes. Breathe. Allow
the river
of it all to pulse
through eyelashes
fingertips, bare toes. Breathe in
breathe out. Breathe until
you feel
your bigness, until the sun
rises in your veins. Breathe
until you stop needing
to be different.
