Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, offering big 5 safaris, is primly positioned in South Africa’s favourite Garden Route playground in the Western Cape – Plettenberg Bay. We offer day excursions and overnight safari package with several accommodation options. It’s a rustic family getaway or a rural African retreat. Whichever journey you choose, we offer several options to make your experience one to remember. With several activities in the reserve and others close to town, we recommend you spend a couple of days with us to maximise your experience.
The reserve is located a short 20 minute drive from the popular seaside town of Plettenberg Bay, also known as ‘Plett’. Well known for its internationally recognised beaches and outdoor activities, the area is a very popular destination.
Plett Game Reserve is one of a very small number of safari camps on the Southern Cape coastline where visitors can see many of the big 5 wildlife in their natural habitat. Safari experiences include a guided game drive and horse safari (for 13 years+).
There are several accommodation options to choose from. The main accommodation, the Baroness Lodge, offers bed and breakfast, self-catering and half guest house lodging (dinner, bed and breakfast) with a guided game drive. There are also family units available should you like to include extended family and friends with your visit.
Experience the magic of the African bush with a two-hour game drive or 2 hour horse safari (for 13 years+) on our 2,200 hectare reserve at the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Our experienced rangers are always happy to impart information on any of the wild animals you spot to make your visit an unforgettable wildlife experience.
Plett Game Reserve is now home to all five of Africa’s famous Big 5, with the recent arrival of elephants to complement the buffalos, rhinos, leopards and lions. You will also encounter many species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodiles as well as more than 300 different specials of birdlife.
