All the basics were provided for and the staff very helpful when we requested adjustments to our room. However, we felt that it was quite pricey for the food on offer. The breakfasts were a bit of a let down-small lunch-box sized flavoured yoghurts instead of a bowl of plain yoghurt, no additional condiments like honey, no bowl of fruit... More

Situated in the Uplands it consists of seven thousand hectares of fynbos. Very well stocked with many different species of buck. The lions, wild dog cheetah are in a separate enclosure but one is almost not aware of them being fenced in as it a a very large area they are kept in. The game ranger was very knowledgeable and...

We stayed at the Baroness Game Lodge in Plettenberg Bay and were treated like royalty. The staff were so friendly. it was out of season and we had the lodge to ourselves. Still, the staff made us feel relaxed and welcome. The food was terrific, the atmosphere was relaxing and we felt quite at home. When we left, we forgot... More

Experiencing wild animals in their natural habitat was an amazing experience. Lions, Giraffes, Leopards, Wild dogs, Hippos, Zebras, Springboks, Water bucks, Buffaloes and other plenty of antelopes can be seen in their natural settings. Missed sighting Rhinos but was compensated with the sighting of giraffes from own car just from a few meters distance. Even could guide the guide about... More

Went for a quick safari experience for 2 hours, which was extended to 3. The location is about 30 min driving from Plettenberg city. The whole experience was wonderful and safe, with a very friendly guide who explained very well about the surrounding wildlife and the reserve park. Plenty of animals, like zebras, antelopes, hippos, rhinos, lion, etc and etc.... More

We visited this reserve as part of our Garden Route journey. It was an amazing, awesome experience. Seeing the animals in there natural environment is something else. Also the Guide who took us around in the open-top jeep ( Hanelese) was so knowledgeable, this added to the experience. This is a must see experience if you are doing the Garden... More
