Our family of 4 had 2 bungalows here for 2 nights. Each was spacious with a sitting area, comfortable US king bed, and large bathroom. The decor was slightly rustic, with a working wood fireplace. Lots of space for luggage, and a nice view of the forest on the private patio. There is a wooden walkway to each bungalow from the main lodge. At night, it’s dimly lit and a bit spooky if you’re worried about monkeys or other creatures, but we felt completely safe here. Breakfast on the patio was nice. Blankets and fire pits were a nice touch as we were here in SA’s winter. Dinner was great the one night we ate here. They brought a full dinner to the kids in the bungalow as they were sick of eating out. Overall service was excellent. Hot water bottles in beds at night was a nice touch. Location is good, only a 5 min drive from Monkeyland, the elephant sanctuary and Birds of Eden. They also offer a shuttle from the hotel if you prefer.
My only complaint is that there’s no option for 4 guests in one bungalow so our family had to separate each night.

What a beautiful place, we had such a wonderful stay. When we arrived we were a little worried as it was only adults and we had two boisterous boys but we were put at ease straight away, they also upgraded us to the villa as it was empty. WOW what a place, a self catering villa straight out of a magazine. So many little touches, the play room, hot water bottles in our beds of an evening and the view was amazing. What really makes Hogs Hollow so exceptional are the staff... so welcoming, genuinely friendly and kind. The general manager Carmen was amazing helping us with directions and recommendations so helpful. We ate at the Table in Plettenberg, really relaxed kid friendly and the food was delicious. We also ate at Enricos relaxed great food and staff. We are already dreaming of a visit back to the SA and hogs hollow as so much still to see. Thank you Hogs Hollow you made us feel so spoilt!

Travelling from the western to eastern cape. Hog hollow was the high light of our trip. It is a little gem. The staff were so friendly and unbelievably helpful. Food was delicious and we loved the communal dining, we met such interesting people. The rooms are beautiful, peaceful and private. I would happily live here. There is so much to see and do. A stay in Hog Hollow is a must when travelling the garden route.

Felt like we were in the jungle, stayed in the amazing 4 bedroom house with its own pool and the mini bar was a huge American fridge freezer full. Staff wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing place.
