Garden Route
Hog Hollow Country Lodge

Hog Hollow Country Lodge is set on the edge of an indigenous forest, with exceptional views over the tree tops to the dramatic Tsitsikamma Mountains.

Comfortable rooms nestle amongst the hillside gardens whilst the Main House is home to the social dining area, swimming pool with valley views and a boma where nightly fires are lit.

Alternatively, there are 2 private Villas, both located a short stroll away from the main lodge, boasting equally enviable views.

Facilities & Activities

The owner Andy has created a very special place in post-Apartheid South Africa. The warm welcome from the staff is key to the friendly atmosphere, whilst the facilities including a sauna and swimming pool alongside a lounge and library brimming with authentic pieces of African art, create a place you will be sad to leave.

Staff will be delighted to help you create an itinerary of activities appropriate to your needs and offer transfers to local facilities such as the beach, golf, river cruises, paddle boarding, cycle trails, boat trips, bungee jumping, ski diving, horse riding, scuba diving, fishing and salt water fly fishing.

Farmhouse breakfasts are served on the wooden deck overlooking the forest tree-tops on crisp days, with the back drop of the hadeda birds.

In the evenings guests enjoy scrumptious dinners in the convivial comfort of the main house or on a balmy evening, outside on the boma deck.

Picnic baskets can be prepared for outings, to be enjoyed in many beautiful locations.
