Just 12 km from Plettenberg Bay, one of the most popular and beautiful holiday destinations on South Africa’s Garden Route coast, Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve is easily accessible for day visitors who want a big game viewing experience in an open 4x4 vehicle or on a guided horseback safari, or for those looking for an African safari getaway in a luxury 4-star lodge.

The friendly and professionally trained game rangers are passionate about sharing their vast knowledge of the local fauna & flora and are experienced guides.

The Reserve has outstanding facilities for day visitors which are supervised by cordial, helpful staff. The reception area has a curio shop, coffee shop and well stocked bar and serves an all day menu of light meals and snacks. Guests can dine alfresco next to the children’s play area or on cooler days they can get cosy on the comfortable couches in front of two roaring fireplaces.

The beautiful colonial-style Baroness Luxury Safari Lodge was built in 1822 by Baron von Pletten, an early South African pioneer and conservationist, who used the original, smaller Lodge as his base to explore the then untamed African landscapes.

Built from local stone, the Lodge has lost little of its original ‘out of Africa’ feel and is both romantic and luxurious with spectacular views across rolling lawns where zebra and antelope room freely, to the indigenous forests and majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance.

Suites are spacious and comfortable, with high ceilings and original polished cement and yellowwood floors. The décor is eclectic and colourful with antiques and giant candelabra and chandeliers mixing effortlessly with leather couches, shabby chic sofas, kilim floor rugs and animal skins. Romantic four poster beds are draped with gossamer fabric mosquito nets and dressed with cotton linen and chenille or faux-fur throws. There are extra warm blankets for chilly nights.

Rooms have showers and freestanding bathtubs, some with views across the indigenous forests.

The guest living spaces are heated by log fireplaces and there are many comfortable sitting areas with a library of books for guests to browse through and many beautiful artefacts, trophies and original photographs to admire.

The outside Boma, which provides an authentic African dining experience, is guarded by two massive carved wooden doors and has a bar and deck built above the dam where guests can enjoy sundowners. In the distance, the view is of Plettenberg Bay, the holiday seaside town named after the infamous Baron von Pletten.

A day at Baroness Luxury Safari Lodge starts with a delicious breakfast served on the semi-enclosed terrace which is warmed by a log fireplace on fresh mornings.

After breakfast guests can join an experienced game ranger on a two hour game drive in an open Land Rover or a horseback safari through the sweeping grasslands of the Reserve.

The rest of the morning should be spent lazing at the pool or on the deck, reading or birding.

Lunch is served at The Shed, a short distance from the Lodge and the departure point for games drives and outrides.

After lunch, enjoy a siesta in the coolness of your luxury suite or book a late afternoon game drive followed by a drink at the bar with your ranger to recollect your experience.

Dinner is an indulgent three course home-cooked meal at the Lodge with pre- or postprandial drinks in the Boma

R 990 per person sharing from 15 Jan to 15 Sep 2012. Fully inclusive of Game activities, meals & local drinks.
