“I know Malelane, I’ve been there a lot of times, I know it well enough to know that this place is not in or close to malelane, you’re lying to me if you say that this place is in malelane, it’s bushveld not forests!” This is about the average reaction of people that see photos of Serenity Mountain and Forest Lodge, Literally a stone’s throw from Malelane, Serenity Lodge is an indigenous forest paradise amidst the dry Savannah that characterizes this region of the beautiful Lowveld. It’s not everyday that we get to shoot a lodge with a look and feel that transports you to an idyllic location such as the Seychelles or even Bali! Serenity Lodge is different to any other lodge that we’ve had the opportunity to work at, the whole lodge is designed in a way to have minimal impact on it’s spectacular surroundings. Ferns , towering trees and green mosses greets you as soon as you set foot in this unique habitat. Shooting a lodge in a location as magical as this, is not an easy task though, you kind of feel pressured to produce nothing but magnificent content, you don’t want to let nature down. Normally we won’t shoot a lodge on a moody, rainy day, but with Serenity it was different. In rainy, misty weather , the forest comes alive, and you truly get a sense of the real beauty of the paradise you’re in. If you’ve looked at the images below and you still don’t believe a place such as this exists in malelane, all we can say is, do yourself a favour and go discover this special paradise for yourself!
