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.

But if you're over all those lush forests, diverse vegetation and lagoons, jump in the car. Plettenberg is a quick drive and a chance for nature lovers to head to the beach and the bars. And the shopping mall. You'll no doubt meet some amateur ornithologists trying on lovely brown camo suits. Compare notes over a beer.

Plett. As the locals call it. Barefoot, beach loving, a taking-it-easy ethos. Plettenberg Bay is a seaside town in South Africa's Western Cape Province. And it's on that most sought-after of tourist routes, the Garden Route.

Redbourne Country Lodge is a spit and a jump away from here and it's surrounded by fine bush. Literally. That old fynbos chestnut. It means 'fine bush' in Old Dutch and is the most studied vegetation type outside of Europe. Generations of scientists - including the big D himself - have been left open-mouthed in amazement at the stuff. Go head... stand in your room and gawp. That's the peaceful Piesang Valley right there. Lush. And that's the Plettenberg Bay Country Club golf course. Also lush.

Accommodation at Redbourne is in 16 en-suite rooms, including four inter-leading family rooms.

The rooms are all Luxury King or Twin rooms. The beds are easily converted into a king-sized double or two three-quarter singles.

There's no air con in these temperate parts but they do have ceiling fans. Rooms open to a balcony overlooking the valley. Invite your new bird-watching buddy for a sundowner. And look there's the gorsey fynbos you read about earlier. It surrounds the Plettenberg Bay Golf Course and Piesang Valley.

Each room has underfloor heating and a private bathroom with both a shower and tub and a hairdryer. TV, minibar, tea & coffee. Children of all ages are welcome.

Facilities

Pool; terrace with boma; dinner can be arranged by request; bar; barbecue; internet access & WiFi in main lodge; parking; TV room; laundry service

Activities

So, you can hit the beach. There are some beauties to choose from. When early Portuguese explorers first saw Plettenberg Bay they called it ‘Bahia Formosa’, meaning ‘beautiful bay’. Says it all.

But it’s not all about the beach. Plett is also home to estuaries and lagoons, indigenous forests and plants, the famous Robberg Reserve, rivers, wine farms and vineyards as well as golf courses.

You can go hiking, whale watching or take a canopy tour. Bungee jump in the morning, go on an ocean safari in the afternoon.

There are also shops, restaurants, cafés, bars and clubs.

Tsitsikamma National Park isn’t far if you want to walk. The Otter Trail is there and regarded as one of the best hiking trails in South Africa.

Or go wine tasting. Bramon Wine Estate is in a mountainous area called The Crags, 20km from Plettenberg Bay.
