About Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve
Plettenberg Bay Private Game Reserve is home to Africa’s Big 4 (rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard). The reserve is situated on over 2000 hectares of indigenous beauty and is malaria free. There are over 150 different species of game and birdlife. Join us on a horseback safari to interact closely with the wildlife, or simply relax and enjoy a 2 hour game drive in an open landrover with our experienced and well-informed guides and see our large variety of wildlife up close.
The reserve welcomes children, and has a wonderful enclosed play area for children to relax and stretch their legs, while being curiously watched by zebra and wildebeest! The Coffee Shop, bar facilities and curio shop are also open to the public.
Each of the spacious ten luxury double suites open out onto the rolling lawns, and the cool interior welcomes guests on the hot, sunny, African afternoons. The suites have both indoor showers and lounging bathtubs, allowing guests to relax and unwind, enjoying true African hospitality.
A cooling outdoor pool is available for the exclusive use of the Lodges' guests - or for those who are a little more energetic, a game of croquette on the lawn might be a good laugh!
The outside Boma is built over a dam, and is a haven for guests to enjoy sundowners and keep an eye on William, the resident Hippopotamus. In the distance, the view from the Boma is of Plettenberg Bay, the holiday seaside town named after the infamous Baron von Pletten.
Rates are inclusive of a scrumptous breakfast and dinner feast, whilst lunch is available daily down at The Shed, a short distance away from the Lodge and the base of the game drives.
Our 2 hour game drives are done in open landrovers, so you can feel close to Nature. Fill your lungs with the scent of the African earth fused with it's endemic wildlife, and feel the cooling breeze of the afternoon sunset.
At the close of our game drive experience, guests are welcome to enjoy a refreshing drink at the bar, hosted by your game ranger, while you recollect your discoveries of your game drive.
At Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, a malaria free game reserve just 15 minutes outside Plettenberg Bay, guests are offered an "up close and personal" experience with the wild, free roaming game. Feel the land of Africa under the hooves of your horse, feel the grass brush past you as you approach Africa's wildlife.
Once your horse safari draws to a close, guests are welcome to join their game ranger at the bar, to enjoy a refreshing drink and to compare their discoveries and experiences of the safari.
