Forever Resorts Badplaas
In 1893 Badplaas’ hot springs were developed into a health resort for the public by the South African Government. Today the hot springs are part of the Forever Resorts and are still a popular holiday resort for South Africans and international tourists. The resort is ideally situated on the R38 in Badplaas, just 3 hours away from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Nelspruit. Making it the perfect weekend getaway, especially for people from Gauteng looking to escape their cold winters! Aside the hydro spa which is fed directly by the hot springs, the resort also boasts a heap of other activities that will keep the whole family amused. The super tubes, speed slides, river rapids and fufi slides are a favourite for older kids and adults alike. While the heated pools, tree walk trails, fishing dams, cafes and bars provide the perfect opportunities to wind down and relax. For nature enthusiasts pony rides, game drives and hiking trails allow you to take in the spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife found in the reserve, and sport fans can enjoy the fishing, a game of tennis or a spot of miniature golf.
