On South Africa’s famous Garden Route, Hog Hollow Country Lodge & Villas is just 18 kilometres from Plettenberg Bay. But you’ll feel nicely tucked away, thanks to the indigenous forest surroundings. This place encourages you to unwind as you listen to local bird calls and watch the sun set behind the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Stretch out on a sun lounger by the pool and admire the views, or get cosy on the boma deck and keep warm by the fire.
With only 16 suites and a few family-sized villas, Hog Hollow Country Lodge offers an intimate experience. There will only be a handful of people staying here at any one time, which makes it easy to make new friendships on the boma deck or enjoy a peaceful afternoon in solitary comfort. Everyone dines together around a large table in the main house, but if you want to take your meals in privacy, your hosts will find you a lovely spot where you won’t be disturbed.
This corner of the Garden Route offers an abundance of adventures. Ride on horseback around a number of trails through meadows, forest and local wine farms. You can try one of the world’s highest bungee jumps, go paddle-boarding on the nearby Keurbooms River, or hike the coastal paths. Alternatively, you could kick back and relax with a massage on the hotel’s decking. Simply ask the hotel for tips, and they’ll be happy to help arrange your days for you.
Indulge in a buffet by the warmth of the fire in the winter, or savour a farmhouse breakfast on the boma deck in the summer.
Start your evenings with appetisers on the boma deck, then enjoy a communal dinner in the main house, washed down with plenty of wine.
If you’d like a more secluded dinner experience, you’ll find lots of quiet places with gorgeous views to enjoy your meal. Simply ask the hotel to dine privately and they’ll accommodate you.
With just 16 suites and a handful of villas, Hog Hollow Country Lodge & Villas provides an exclusive experience. All the rooms are situated in the gardens, offering serene surroundings. Earthy colours embrace the best of the natural setting while king-size beds, homemade lemon syrup and hand-baked cookies bring a sense of cosiness.
