Just 18km east of the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay along the lovely Garden Route, this country lodge & villa is set on the edge of indigenous forest, with breath-taking views of the surrounding valleys and Tsitsikamma Mountains.

Every lodge ensures their guests experience the thrill of game drives and up-close encounters with the many different types of animals – large and small, fierce and timid.
