Set against a backdrop of forests, valleys and the towering peaks of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, Hog Hollow Country Lodge is the perfect place to enjoy gourmet cuisine, chic suites and poolside paradise. The much-loved Plettenberg Bay is only a short drive away, but the reserve’s own list of activities is endless, making this an ideal place to escape and absorb South Africa’s natural wonders.
Overlooking the River Gorge, Hog Hollow is located 18km from the beautiful Plettenberg Bay famous for its warm waters and unspoiled beaches. But if relaxing on the beach doesn’t take your fancy then maybe the world’s tallest bungee jump at Bloukans River will tempt the thrill-seeker in you? It’s just a short distance from the lodge, so even if you daren’t take the plunge yourself, you can marvel whilst others do.
Hog Hollow boasts 16 African inspired rooms each with their own private decking area. Your room will have a king sized bed, and next to it you’ll find traditional homemade lemon syrup, tasty cookies and a hot water bottle to ensure you have a cosy stay. If you’re travelling with your family, the reserve has three charming double storied suites with comfy couch beds, and they’re well equipped with buckets, spades and body boards for some beach fun.
Why We Like it?
It’s the food that really tops off this South African retreat. Start your day with breakfast on the terrace, a scrumptious buffet accompanied with a glass of bubbly, for those that fancy it. Then to end your day – whether you’ve been zipping through the tree tops or lazing around the pool – a delicious dinner awaits. Settle down at a communal table and meet like-minded travellers as you tuck into some authentic dishes.
