Jeffrey hätte auch Paul heißen können, oder Luke. Luke heißt wahrscheinlich aber sein Sohn, dessen Namen er zwischen Laura und Elisabeth auf seinen linken speckigen, pigmentverstörten Oberarm eingebrannt hat. Auf der rechten Seite liegt seine Frau. Wahrscheinlich Elisabeth, wahrscheinlich vor 20 Jahren auch noch schön und knackig. Heute hat sie wie …
Today we took the short drive to the last stop on our trip, Plettenburg Bay. Given that it is a Sunday and the views from our guest house are so nice, we are just going to hang out today - walking on the beach, sitting and looking at the bay. Tomorrow is our last day, and we'll be filling it up, so today we rest. ...
... had been very quiet. Chris and Rita the Belgian couple were also here and it was nice to catch up with them again.
Our room was in a converted cottage called Dove Cottage. It had a lovely en suite with a walk in shower but the place got freezing at night!! We settled down for an early night on the, yet again, hard mattress!
The next day
There were several walks to do on the farm as ...
... was the '******* Ironwood'... which has like zero branches until the very top.
The forest was quite thick at times and right on the coastline. 'Tsitsikamma' means place of abundant water and that it certainly is.... amazing scenery, its one of the only big forests left on the SA coastline with a very powerful and dramatic Indian Ocean pounding the rocks. I think I could've stayed and watched the waves smash off ...
... those first few seconds of freefall. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!! And would do it again and again and again if I had the money.
After David jumped we wondered back to solid ground watchful of any snakes occasionally seen crossing the dirt footpaths. First stop, bar for a much needed pint to calm any shattered nerves. It was there we saw they had a live feed set up from the video camera positioned right at your face before you ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hog Hollow Country Lodge Plettenberg Bay
My boyfriend's favourite accommodation on our trip was Whalesong Lodge (De Kelders) but mine was Hog Hollow. I just loved it. It's nestled in the forest, unbelievably helpful and friendly staff, great food, lovely rooms with lots of nice homely touches e.g. biscuits cooked by chef, CD player, big balcony overlooking forest with a hammock....
I loved eating with all the other guests in the evenings.
Fantastic proximity for walking, bungee jumping (!), sea kayaking, trips to Plett or Tsitsikamma. This is a fantastic area so allow plenty of time to do stuff but also to lounge around on the sofas or on the huge deck admiring the views.
This is a fantastic find! Firstly, the location is good, just outside Plettenberg Bay, in a small rural area containing some nice attractions (monkey sanctuary, elephant rescue, few shops, close to the Boukrans bungee jump etc.).
We stayed for 2 nights (which truly was not enough time) at the beginning of October as part of our honeymoon. If you are looking for some relaxing, private & unique accommodations, this is perfect! We had an individual cottage with large bath, living area and private balcony with unobstructed view of the trees. It even had it's own fireplace so that you could light a nice wood fire in your room. The bathroom was unique with glass shower and glass partition that could open to the balcony with no drapes! Everything was extremely clean and well kept.
The Hog Hollow is one of the most beautiful places in South Africa. We were lucky enough to stay here for 3 nights (honeymoon trip) and had the most fantastic stay you could wish for.
We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon and I cannot say enough good things about the place. The room or should i say little house was brilliant with amazing views. I could rave on about the staff for ever, they were just brilliant, both helpful and friendly but in a totally genuine way, made us feel like we were staying with friends and the whole place was ours to enjoy. I couldn't reccommend this place enough, and I say all this even though it rained the whole time we were there!!!!! Oh and not to forget the food....YumYumYum
We were lucky enough to get the last room here for Easter Sunday and Monday, despite booking 7 months in advance. This place is described as 'special' in the Travelbag brochure, and how right they are.
what a place.......we spent 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon ..what an amazing special place...Its so good I nearly want to keep it secert so people dont know about it..
Hog Hollow is a fantastic find and highly recommended. It has a great location next to the national park and near stunning beaches, beautiful forest views. The main lodge is beautifully designed and furnished with a large terrace for dining on when the weather is fine. Our little cottage was lovely, a terrace with hammock, sitting room with log fire, bedroom wiht hot water bottles placed there each night - and a different bedtime story on the pillow each night - something I have never seen in other hotels. The staff could not do enough to help and were very knowledgable on the local area. The food was very good and everyone dines together at a long table, we met different people each night and it was very informal and pleasant. From the hotel you can walk through the forest - accompanied by the hotel dog! Only downside was that when we arrived they were completing renovation works and the swimming pool was closed and they were finishing decorating the interior of the main lodge and building some extra cottages. We were there only hte 2nd week of the season. We did complain as we had not been informed in advance and were given a free night accommodation and dinner (although had to chase this up when got home). This was a one off and the staff were very apologetic so please don't let that put you off, you can't fail to have a blissful time at Hog Hollow.
We spent three wonderful days at Hog Hollow last October. Our room was amazing. We had a little detached house down its own wooden walkway with a lovely bedroom with a fireplace, a covered verandah with a picture window and a big squashy leather sofa and a deck with a hammock so you could lie back and enjoy the stunnning views. The rooms were decorated with fascinating local scultures and paintings.
