We are frequent travellers to South Africa, having family living in Cape Town. This year we decided to break our stay and venture across to Plettenburg Bay for a few days (13th to 18th Feb). We opted for Bella Manga as it was away from the hustle and bustle of the town. We were not disappointed.
Although Bella Manga is situated off the main tar road, along a typical South African dirt road, it is still easily accessible by car.
The Self Catering Forest Lodges are set away from the main house, which is stunning in itself. The lodges are surrounded by trees and farmland, all adding to the serenity. The gardens are securely fenced and maintained immaculately. We made good use of the braai facilities and the large clean swimming pool.
Inside, the lodge was equipped adequately with comfortable furnishings and clean, crisp linen. We made use of the cleaning and laundry facilities, which we found very reasonably priced.
Ray and Fiona were on hand to offer advice on things to see and places to go. We were invited to use the bar facilities in the main house and found both Ray & Fiona to be excellent hosts.
We look forward to returning next year.
