About Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve
Welcome to Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve. Experience a hidden gem, where abundant wildlife roam the plains, where the distant lion roars pierce the black dark of night and where the African sunset leaves an unforgettable memory. And all of this is just a few minutes' drive outside of Plettenberg Bay.
We offer the Baroness Lodge for accommodation. The lodge was built in 1822 by the Baron von Pletten, an early South African pioneer and conservationist, who used the lodge as his base to explore the diversity and wildlife of the then, untamed, African landscapes. Each of the spacious 10 double suites open out onto the rolling lawns, and the cool interior welcomes guests on the hot African afternoons. The suites have both indoor showers and lounging bathtubs, allowing guests to relax and unwind.
A cooling outdoor pool is available for the exclusive use of the 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 it 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.
Plettenberg Bay Private Game Reserve is the Southern Cape's biggest game reserve and is home to Africa’s Big 5, being elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. The reserve is situated on over 2000 hectares of indigenous beauty and it is malaria free. There are over 150 different species of game and bird life.
Join us on a horseback safari to interact closely with the wildlife, or simply relax and enjoy a two-hour game drive in an open vehicle. The reserve welcomes children and it has a wonderful enclosed play area for kids 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.
