This is African chic luxury accommodation, 20km outside Plettenberg Bay, with one of the most incredible views along the Garden Route. Hog Hollow Country Lodge is set in a private nature reserve, on a steep hillside overlooking the Matjies River Gorge and surrounded by indigenous forest and spectacular panoramic views of the valleys and mountains. The main house has three lounge areas, a large dining room and reading room; breakfasts are served on the deck with magnificent views, there is a boma and large outdoor swimming pool area with sun chairs and umbrellas. The Boma is a place for festive occasions and the days’ end, where guests relax on comfy chairs, a fire crackling nearby, and their favourite night-cap in hand.
ROOMS & SUITES
The 16 suites are spaciously set in lush gardens surrounding the main house. The Villa is situated just above the main house. With a distinctive African-style and an earthy palette with splashes of colour, suites have been tastefully decorated. All suites feature king size beds, en-suite bathrooms, lounge area with mini bar and mini hi-fi and a private wooden deck with a hammock to enjoy the beautiful views (there is no air-conditioning, TV’s and WiFi can be erratic due to the terrain).
The Villa at Hog Hollow is 400m from the main Lodge overlooking the forests and mountains. This spacious three-bedroomed house includes a games room, swimming pool, barbeque facilities and a central eating area. Ideal for families or 3 couples travelling.
Relax at the long blue pool – soak up the sun, take a sauna, or have a massage on the treatment deck. For the more energetic there are magnificent horse trails or a forest walk to various sanctuaries across the valley. From Hog Hollow, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and the Elephant Sanctuary are a walk away. Boat based dolphin and whale watching trips, beautiful beaches, Tree Top Canopy Tours and boutique shops are all easily accessible (all activities additional charge).
Hog Hollow is well known for its delectable food. On crisp clear mornings, farmhouse breakfasts are served on the boma deck overlooking the forest and mountains, a splendid buffet array with all the little special treats, and of course a bit of bubbly to begin the day. Dinners start out at the boma – with tasty little treats to whet the appetite. It’s a festive occasion as the day ends and the full splendor of the African stars shine down on the deck. You are invited to wine and dine in the candle-lit main house. At the centre of the Main House is the famously large dining room table! If communal dining is not your thing, there are lots of lovely little areas where you can dine privately.
