Hog Hollow Country Lodge and Private Nature Reserve, Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route, Western Cape.

Lush indigenous vegetation framed by majestic mountain ranges on one side and the Indian Ocean with its pristine white beaches make the Garden Route one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa.  Hog Hollow Country Lodge and Nature Reserve lies in the heart of this magnificent area.  It provides one with an ideal base from which to explore the Garden Route.  Attractions nearby include birding, guided walks and horse riding trails.  The area boasts an arts and crafts route. The Tsitsikamma National Park and Knysna are only 40 minutes drive away. 

A unique feature of the region is the abundance of marine mammals.  Enjoy the thrill of boat-based whale and dolphin watching or get a different perspective by taking scenic flights around the bay.   The highest bungee jump in the world (216m), golf, scuba diving, fishing and canoeing as well as the Storms River Mouth and Robberg Nature Reserves are nearby.

Hog Hollow is known for its delectable food and friendly personalised service.  Farmhouse breakfasts are served on the wooden deck overlooking the forest and the Matjes River Gorge on crisp, clear days or indoors near the fireplace when it is cooler.  Enjoy dinners in the comfort of the main house.

The main house includes two lounge areas; one leading out onto the swimming pool area, while the other offers the privacy of a leafy garden vista, ideal for reading.  Our inside/outside bar offers a range of Cape wines. For those wishing to spend some tranquil time appreciating nature, a sun-dappled stream runs through the gorge and provides cool shelter amongst the forest ferns and ancient indigenous trees.

Twelve rooms offer uninterrupted views over the forests and mountains.  Each room has a private wooden deck with its own hammock and wooden furniture, an en-suite bathroom or shower (or both). Most have a cosy fireplace for chilly nights.  Six simplex rooms are on one level with a fireplace in each bedroom and an en-suite bathroom.  Three duplexes have a master bedroom upstairs and a lounge and en-suite bathroom downstairs.  The Round House, originally a reservoir, has been converted into a circular duplex with a lounge and fireplace downstairs with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom upstairs.  Our forest suites are in freestanding cottages with French doors leading out onto full-length wooden decks.  An indoor garden, spacious lounge, bedroom, bathroom and the added privacy make these a popular choice.

Hog Hollow is on the N2, 18-km east of Plettenberg Bay, which is on the N2 east of George, which is at the intersection of the N2 with the N12. Take the Hog Hollow/ Barnyard turnoff down Askop Road. Follow the road for 1.3-km until you reach the lodge, which is on your left.  BGHoghollow
