Rediscover the true meaning of relaxation at Hog Hollow, where the most important things -nature, sunshine, laughter and simplicity – are celebrated. Each of the 16 charming suites in the gardens surrounding the main house has uninterrupted forest and mountain views and a private deck. With king-sized or twin beds, en-suite bathrooms with bath and shower, minibar, WiFi access, and extra touches including homemade cookies and lemonade, and hot-water bottles in winter, the Hog Hollow suites are utterly comfortable.

Choose from the Hog Hollow Garden Suites, the double-storey Loft Suites or the Round House, traditionally the honeymoon suite. For a secluded escape, The Villa at Hog Hollow is a three-bedroomed, double-storey house that opens up onto a private infinity pool and wooden decks with breathtaking views.

Hog Hollow overlooks a central dam, creating a private oasis on the edge of an indigenous forest. There is plenty to keep the whole family happy. The la carte restaurant specializes in delectable meals using fresh local produce. Relax beside the swimming pool that overlooks the Matjes River Gorge or stroll along the forests walking trails to see the elephants at the Knysna Elephant Park. Keurbooms Beach and Natures Valley are just 10 minutes away, and Plettenberg Bay’s sweeping sandy beaches are just 18km to the west.

The Garden Route coastline is famous for the whales that calve here between July and September and the dolphins that play here year round; Hog Hollow viewing excursions by boat offer the chance of a lifetime to get up close to these special creatures.

Hog Hollow Country Lodge is the perfect base for a Garden Route family holiday: revel in the ancient forests, dramatic Tsitsikamma mountains, endless sandy beaches and thrilling eco-activities.
