Travel Tips for Plettenberg Bay



Situated among rolling hills in the scenic and malaria-free Bitou Valley, a mere 45km from Knysna, Buffalo Hills offers the opportunity to view big game, and diverse bird life on fun-filled game-drives or walks. Accommodation is provided in the historic Stone Cottage, luxurious rustic lodges or en-suite tents.

Superb dining can be enjoyed in the outdoor boma, with sweeping views of rhino and buffalo grazing on the plains. The menu is designed around the traditional South African braai, with game being the speciality.

The Elephant Gorge Trail is a guided and porteraged hike that follows an historic wagon route for 12km through indigenous forest to the luxurious Elephant Gorge bush lodges. Daily distillery tours offer insight into the making of the truly unique African liqueur, Inyati (Jack’s Jungle Juice).
