Situated 18 kilometers east of the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, Hog Hollow, a private nature reserve, is set on the edge of an indigenous forest with breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys and Tsitsikamma Mountains. Hog Hollow Country Lodge is well known for our delectable food, personalized accommodation, panoramic views, and sincere hospitality.
Our sixteen individual suites are situated in lush gardens surrounding the main house. Each room is decorated in a uniquely African-style, using earthy colours, naturally woven fabrics, artifacts from around Africa & local handcrafted woods. These comfortable, stylish suites offer private wooden decks, hammocks, king-sized beds, lounge area, en-suite bathrooms and most have cosy fireplaces for those chilly winter nights.
Superb breakfasts are served out on the boma deck in the warmth of the morning sunshine, or inside by the fire on chillier days, while our scrumptious communal dinners are served in the conviviality of the candle-lit main house.
Hog Hollow’s main emphasis is to employ people from the surrounding communities to work and grow in the diverse world of the hospitality industry. On the 14th of July 2005, we became the 13th property in South Africa to become Fair Trade in Tourism accredited. FTTSA encourages and publicises fair and responsible business practices through its independent and highly recognizable trademark symbol of fairness in the tourism industry.
Mindful of our “footprint" on our planet, since our inception we have been working hard to minimize its effect by implementing various energy efficient and environmental programmes at the lodge. On 10 May 2008, we received the Wilderness Foundation Green Leaf accreditation. We were one of the first six properties in South Africa to be accredited by the Foundation whose entry mark is a minimum of 75%.
Attractions nearby range from lazing at our long blue pool, or taking a refreshing sauna, to a magnificent walk from the Lodge through the ancient indigenous forests to either to Monkeyland primate sanctuary, the Birds of Eden or the Elephant Sanctuary. Other attractions include over 50 charted walks, horse riding, golf, canoeing, abseiling, bungy jumping the world’s highest at 216 metres, boat-based whale and dolphin watching, a treetops canopy walk, the list is endless...

Local area description
Hog Hollow is situated in The Crags, just 18km from Plettenberg Bay and it is surrounded by wonderful things to do. Take a walk through the indigenous forest to one of three sanctuaries: Either Monkeyland, Birds of Eden or the Elephant Sanctuary. The very first wine estate in the area is just across the valley - Bramon wine estate - with it's superb restaurant (lunches only). There is Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre where you can interact with many of the wild cats of South Africa. There is even a sanctuary for snakes and crocodiles here. There is an excellent arts and crafts and interesting shops in the vicinity. And not to forget the glorious beaches not 15minutes drive from our doorstep.
What an excellent choice, this was a last minute booking and boy was it good! We stayed in the villa with its own pool and even had breakfast made for us in our own kitchen. The environment was beautiful, the staff very, very friendly and efficient and even a visit from a tree snake did not deter us from enjoying a fabulous holiday.

Die personeel is professioneel. Die ontbyt is smaaklik met 'n goeie verskeidenheid. Die kamers is netjies. Die omgewing is asemrowend. Die perseel word baie goed in stand gehou. Die kaggel in die kamer is 'n bonus vir 'n koue aand.
