Bitou River Lodge, Plettenberg Bay

Excellent - £££


The Bitou River Lodge is in a stunning part of the world: Plettenberg Bay. The luxurious five-roomed lodge is the perfect place to relax but being surrounded by wetlands, beaches, forest and more, there are also plenty of opportunities for adventure.

Go out on a dolphin and whale watching boat tour, take a kayak around the bay or even try scuba diving. If you want to try some activities on land, go for a hike through the Robberg Nature Reserve or teeter over the suspension bridge above Storms River. You can also see the monkeys at Monkeyland and feed the elephants at the Knysna Elephant park and the Elephant Sanctuary.

The Bitou River Lodge is built in the style of a farmhouse and sits on the banks of the Bitou River. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and very private. They all have their own entrance and patio where you can enjoy an evening looking up at the starry sky. From your room you can go straight to the garden and walk down to the river. You’ll have a great view of the waterlilies, the birds and the peacefully lapping water.


There’s a comfortable guest lounge where you can sit and chat to fellow visitors, relax and play games like chess and solitaire. The roaring fireplace makes this the best place to be in the winter months.

The breakfast room has great views of the water and a quirky modern farmhouse charm that you’ll love.
