We arrived at the lodge nd wer given 2 rooms to the right of the main lodge, simply beautiful and so lodge style, nothing to do with these luxury sterile rooms we stay all over the world, it was rustic, spotless clean, and just relaxing. huge king side bed, pre-heated electric blanket bed, wild bathroom!, open shower, center bathtub.
The ladies running the property were very accomodating, friendly and attentive, asking if we wanted tea or coffee, made sure the fire places were on when you came back ( it was a little bit chilly the first night outside, great though next to the fireplace.
Food was well prepared and good. (I don't expect to eat Michelin style on a game safary lodge.)
Wildlife right next to the lodge (rhinos on the second day)
Game ride interesting with a good guide, the lion cage is kinda strange, either add some cats
or close this part of the trip. The "safari" truck was too big and too noisy, the horse back ride on the second day was much more fun and closer to nature. Everybody can do it!!! Just walking!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our beautiful Plett Accommodation is a historic and charming colonial-style Safari Lodge that was built in early 1800 by Baron Joachim von Plettenberg, an early South African pioneer and conservationist, who used the original, smaller Lodge as his base to explore the then untamed African landscapes. Built from local stone, the Safari Lodge has lost little of its original 'out of Africa' feel and has spectacular views across rolling lawns where zebra and antelope roam freely, to the indigenous forests and majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance. ... more less
