After being in the area we realised that having spent a while researching suitable locations for a family game drive we should have found here first.
The reserve were accommodating to my 3 and 1 year olds, we were able to see a variety of...More
The staff tried their best but they need more training and the accommodation is run down in our opinion. The promised WiFi only works in public areas, we had one flannel between two people and the toiletries were sparse with one small sachet of shower...More

The game drive is a nice wild animal experience (even the dangerous animals are behind fenced areas). But you will be able to see them.
The hotel is an old house, with dark but clean rooms. The staff is friendly the breakfast and dinner is...More
There a very few horse safaris in the area but this one seemed to be well organised. We arrived and were fitted with helmets, then fitted with our horses - for SA standards they looked pretty well cared for. We mounted up and off we...More
I highly recommend the horse back safari if you have riding experience. The horses are lovely and our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I felt in one with nature there and has close encounters with giraffes and pretty close encounters with zebras, elephants and wilder...More

We had a fantastic time. The reception area is beautiful, with great atmosphere. Was cold but they also have huge fire places for anyone to warm up.
The staff is friendly and welcoming, always smiling, you can see that they love what they do.
When you drive into the reserve, reception is far in the park, at least a 5-7min drive, don't get irritated by that! Welcome was a bit cold, but everything was quick and efficient. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable, although the 2 hours were already...More
The Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve is a small park in which you can easily spot different animals. One of the guys drove our family around to spot all our favorites, and tell something about them. As you are with a small group, it is easy...More

Hi, I spent a couple of days here and tried the horseback Safari and the jeep drive. As it’s a private game reserve it has a different atmosphere from the National Parks, but you are more likely to see big cats (cheetah and lions), wild dogs, hippo, rhinos and elephants very close up, not to mention wildebeest, zebra and other varieties of antelope. The animals are in good condition and as far as I know there is no hunting. The guides are very friendly and knowledgeable too. If you have time to stay, I recommend their Baronness Lodge - I had a lovely couple of nights there.
