Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve
Our beautiful Baroness Game Lodge, 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 Lodge has lost little of its original ‘out of Africa’ feel and prides itself on maintaining a rustic and comfortable character. It has spectacular views across rolling lawns where zebra and antelope room freely, to the indigenous forests and majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance
The suites are comfortable, with high ceilings and original polished cement or yellowwood floors.
The décor is eclectic and colourful with antiques and chandeliers mixing effortlessly with the leather couches, shabby chic sofas, kilim floor rugs and animal skins.
Our romantic, comfortable four poster beds are draped with mosquito nets and dressed with cotton linen and chenille or faux-fur throws. There are extra warm blankets for chilly nights and some of the rooms have fireplaces. Each room leads out to a veranda for relaxing with a book or to soak in the magnificent views.
