bushbaby rating

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, the 3 bedroom luxury Villa is located a short stroll away on the private nature reserve, boasting equally enviable views.

  • rooms

    There are 16 Suites spread over half a dozen cottages around the grounds. The whitewashed cottages come with either king size or twin beds. The Suites are furnished with hand crafted artefacts and feature a well stocked minibar, fireplaces and en-suite facilities. Each has a wooden deck with hammock overlooking the ravine.

    The 3 bedroom Villa is situated 400m from the main lodge on a private nature reserve, with breathtaking views over the forest and mountains. It features a master en-suite bedroom downstairs and 2 further en-suite bedrooms upstairs along with a small games room. The lounge/dining area is spacious and sunny and opens on to a wooden deck area and private pool. Please note the pool is unfenced, but a safety net can be placed over it if required.

  • facilities & activities

    Owners Andy and Debbie have created a very special place in post-Apartheid South Africa. The warm welcome from the staff are 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, bunjee jumping, ski diving, horse riding, scuba diving, fishing and salt water fly fishing.

  • dining

    Farmhouse breakfasts are served on the wooden deck overlooking the forest tree-tops on crisp days, with the back drop of the hadida birds.
    In the evenings guests enjoy scrumptious dinners around the communal yellowwood table in the convivial comfort of the candle-lit main house (please note no under 12’s allowed) or private tables for couples and families can be prepared on request.

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

  • family

    Children are welcome at the lodge but there are no specific facilities. Associated services include babysitting and special turn downs each evening with a glass of fresh milk, a Gingerbread man, children’s stories and boxes of toys and other interesting things!

    The hotel can provide buckets, spades and body boards for family fun at the beach. There is plenty for them to do in the local area such as visits to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, the Elephant Sanctuary and Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre.

    The double storey Family Suites are ideal for families, sleeping 2 adults and 2 children 12 & under comfortably. The main en-suite bedroom is upstairs while in the downstairs lounge there is a double sleeper couch and an ottoman which can be made up for children in the evening. Please note there are no TVs in the rooms, however there is a communal television in the far lounge in the main house.

    For larger groups/families of 5 or 6, the Villa makes for a perfect home from home!

    During the early evening, children's menus are available in the restaurant, or family tables can be made up for those with children under 12 wishing to dine together.
