Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

The main house and focus of life in Hog Hollow features a cave-like dining hall with high thatch and dark floors setting a medieval scene while the view from the wrap-around elevated balcony is of steep forest-covered Tstitsikamma Mountains.

The pool and a variety sun decks and loungers branch off the main house and hover above the ground with cosy nooks and distant views through the trees across the valley. The 16 rooms are cosy cottages tucked into the forest and reached by a network of stone of pathways. An additional three-bedroom palatial private villa sits a few hundred off from the main house and enjoys the same views, setting and service of the lodge.

With effortless comfort, bright locally made artworks and earthy décor, the suites at Hog Hollow come complete with king size bed, fireplace, music system (strange music pre-loaded or play your own) and a mini bar. The turn down is something of a surprise as is the dining event - a high table set menu with a medieval theme. While you won't exactly throw leftovers over your shoulder, the mood, led by your charismatic host and a random king, tends towards the garrulous.

The staff at Hog Hollow are all from the surrounding community. Trained by Andy - the local-is-lekker ambassador at Hog Hollow - their enthusiasm and genuine hospitality rivals only the magnificent views, tranquil setting and comfortable accommodation.
