About Hog Hollow Country Lodge
“If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live.” Lin Yutang (1895 – 1976)
Situated 18km east of the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, Hog Hollow Country Lodge, a private nature reserve, is set on the edge of indigenous forest with breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys and Tsitsikamma Mountains.
Sixteen individual suites are situated in lush gardens surrounding the main house. Each room is decorated in a uniquely African-style, using earthy colours, bright fabrics, artifacts from around Africa and local handcrafted woods. These comfortable, stylish suites offer private wooden decks, king sized beds, lounge area, en-suite bathrooms and most have cosy fireplaces for those chilly winter nights.
Villa at Hog Hollow Country Lodge is situated 400m from the main lodge on our private nature reserve and is set on the steep forest verge, amidst a verdant indigenous garden. An ideal house for families or two couples travelling – this spacious three bed roomed Villa includes a games room (pool table / table tennis and family board games), swimming pool, barbeque facilities and a central eating area - creating a private holiday haven.
Superb breakfasts are served on the boma deck in the warmth of the morning sunshine, or inside by the fire on chillier days, while our scrumptious communal dinners are served in the conviviality of the candle-lit main house.
Attractions at the lodge range from: lazing at our long blue pool, sauna, massage or reflexology, horse riding over fields and forest, to a magnificent walk from the Lodge through the indigenous forests.
Other attractions include Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary, the Birds of Eden, the Elephant Sanctuary, wine route, over 50 charted walks, golf, canoeing, abseiling, bungy jumping (216m!), boat-based whale and dolphin watching, a treetops canopy walk . The list is endless …
