Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve

Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve is the biggest game reserve in the Southern Cape, with more than 2200 ha spread out across the hills above the scenic Garden Route coastline. With its breathtaking views across the Bay of Beauty, its abundance of wildlife, superb facilities for day and overnight visitors and warm African hospitality, it offers an exciting child-friendly safari experience in a non-malaria area with an excellent chance of spotting four of Africa’s Big Five – buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino.

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 4×4 vehicle or on a guided horseback safari, or for those looking for an African safari getaway in a luxury 4-star lodge.

The game drives are open to the public for the following departure times:

  • May-September: 11h00 and 15h00
  • October-April: 08h30, 10h00, 11h00, 12h30, 15h00 and 16h00

Horse safaris are open to day visitors and are scheduled daily at 10h00 and 15h00, weather permitting.

We advise you to dress warmly for your game drive especially in cooler weather, although we do supply our guests with blankets on the open 4×4 vehicles.
