Forestway Outdoor Centre is situated on the edge of the Kologha Forest Reserve, just 8km from Stutterheim on the N6. The name Kologha is derived from Xolo: the Xhosa word for peace. In the original it was Xolora – a place of or people of peace. For us, it is God’s peace! 

Forestway offers a unique experience of the Outdoors and God's creation, running Environmental Education camps, Leadership Training, Team Building and Adventure Activities. Open to all ages, our main business is school camps. There are also facilities for day conferences and training events. The focus is on group bookings. 

All catering is provided by Forestway’s well experienced catering team. They are also able to cater for special dietary needs. (If required, details to be sent through in the booking process.)

Forestway can accommodate groups of up to 100 people in dormitory-style accommodation. The accommodation consists of: 

  • Main accommodation block: 8 rooms/66 beds, with ablutions on each end.
  • Leader’s rooms: 2 rooms with 3 bed each. One room is ensuite.
  • Cabins: 4 rooms each with 8 beds and their own toilet/shower,opening onto a common veranda.

The spacious hall (225m2)is ideal for large meetings. It has a fire place, projection screen, chairs and tables. Other ‘modern gadgets’ can be arranged.

On the grounds there is a volley ball court, a playing field, a fire circle, a bouldering wall and a basketball hoop.

Some activities offered at Forestway: obstacle course, abseiling, archery, raft building, sleep-out in the forest, potjie kos, hamburger braai, kayaking, orienteering, compass trail, The Forestway Challenge, interpretive forest walks, waterfall walks, adventure night trail, star walks (when the sky is clear) and hide outs. There is also the environmental education program called, “Ubomi” (in Xhosa means ‘Life’).

Forestway has a Child Protection Policy in place.

Lush vegetation, evergreen lawns, majestic trees and the sound of the mountain stream make this converted forest station the place to absorb the peace, walk the trails and talk out the joys. It is also the place to stretch your team working, test your thirst for adventure and for you to be challenged - spirit, soul and body.
