When you think of winter in Plettenberg Bay, what comes to mind? Windswept beaches, crashing waves and freezing weather? You’d be wrong on all counts. Winter in Plettenberg Bay is a mild affair – sunny, windless days and mildly fresh nights are what you can expect, with the odd winter storm – it may not be swimming weather, but there’s plenty to do in Plett during our winter months.
Why not plan a safari holiday at Plett Game Reserve?
Plett Game Reserve, home to the historical Baroness Lodge, is a 2000 hectare reserve, bordering the Garden Route Mega Reserve, just 20 minutes outside the town of Plettenberg Bay. Offering Big Five game viewing, 4×4 safaris and horse safaris, it is the perfect winter break along the Garden Route.
The Baroness Lodge at Plett Game Reserve has a very interesting and significant history as the residence of Baron Joachim von Plettenberg. Yes – that Plettenberg, the man for whom the town of Plettenberg Bay is named! Read more about the building and how it was used by one of the original European settlers in the area here.
The lodge and our game reserve reception area are cosy and comfortable, perfect for sitting and enjoying the views across golden plains to the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Embrace winter by sitting around a roaring fire and sharing stories with a glass of red wine. Explore the game reserve by 4×4 vehicle or horse safari, or try both. You’ll leave Plett Game Reserve inspired by South African wildlife, revived by nature and relaxed. The perfect mid-year break. BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY HERE
