We came with high expectations and we couldn't ask for better. Food was divine, ladies were friendly and tried everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Very child friendly. A stay we will never forget!

The advertising leaflet that persuaded us to visit shows a great close up photo of a lion on the cover. Inside there is a picture that has a couple of lion roaming the plain with the safari vehicle in close proximity. There are also close up pictures of a wild dog and a cheetah. The lure and promise of the... More

Took a lady from the UK and another from the USA on the horse safari. It was magic. Robert our guide was brilliant, informative and funny. We saw giraffe, springbok, eland, Nyala, wildebeest, buffalo, gemsbok, waterbuck, fallow deer, zebra, hippo, crocodile, ostrich, bontebok, red hartebeest. So special, 2 hours out on the reserve was like having a weeks holiday!

The staff, the bedrooms, the food, the game drive was the best experience I have ever had. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know and will go back as soon as I can. Thank you for such a great time, stunning place. And the staff were very friendly and helpful xxxx

We have travelled to many game reserves in South Africa, from the basic to ultra-luxury, but found Plett Game Reserve to be quite unique. Perhaps more appealing to overseas visitors due to the guaranteed viewing of the big game, it is unique for a venue 20 minutes from Plettenberg Bay. Accommodation ranges from rooms dark in the main house block,... More

First time to South Africa. Plattenburg Bay was absolutely incredible and I would defiantly return. The staff was very accommodating and the food was very good. My only comment some what controversial is that we arrived late to the lodge from Cape Town approximently 10:30. No staff was on sight to check us in. However, the adventure and laughs we... More

A mere 15 minutes outside of Plett and one feels as if in a distant almost-Savannah environment! The large park is full of buck, and we were also lucky enough to see giraffes, lions and cheetahs, as well as the resident wild dogs and hippos on our informative drive. Be sure to dress warmly.

Wow, talking about "Out of Africa" experience, especially for price. Quiet, old British safari lodge feel (it was built as that in 1822). Outstanding service and food. Great for the kids to explore the grounds. Out door fire pits every night, good selection of drinks and wine. Good water pressure and hot water. Woke up to my kids saying "... More

I can really recommend the horse safari in plett bay game reserve. You come up really close to the animals and there is a lot to see. (Not recommendable for people who just want to see the Big 5 - on the horse safari you will only see to of them (rhino and buffelo)) They have Hippos, a lot of... More
