Hog Hollow Country Lodge
Why we like it
- Set on the edge of an indigenous forest in a private nature reserve
- Incredible views over the surrounding valleys and the Tsitsikamma mountains
- Homely and relaxed atmosphere
- Perfect base to explore the Garden Route
- Operates responsible tourism practice
If you are bird lover, then head to the Ficus Lounge where the ancient fruit laden tree attracts prolific birds.
We had no expectations, as this was a first safari for all of us. We were impressed and very comfortable.

Hog Hollow Country Lodge is the perfect place to relax after exploring the wonderful Garden Route. Sixteen suites, furnished with hand crafted artifacts are all situated in the gardens surrounding the main house. Sit out on your private wooded deck listening to the sounds of the garden. There are three lounges where you can curl up with a good book. At the centre of the Main House is the famous large dining table where guests can plan their daily activities over breakfast and share their memories with other guests over a candle lit dinner.
Once at Hog Hollow Country Lodge you will find it pretty hard to tear yourself away to explore the area. Laze around the pool on balmy sunny days, relax in the sauna, read a book, or take the opportunity to visit the many attractions nearby. You can walk from the lodge through the indigenous forest to Monkeyland Primate Sancutary or The Birds of Eden or The Elephant Sanctuary. A short drive away and you can find yourself on golden beaches.
Best time to be there
October to May is the best time to visit the Cape. Game viewing is better during the drier months of April to September. The wildflower season is generally from mid August to mid September. The whale watching season runs from June to November.
