Fodor's Expert Review Hog Hollow Country Lodge

Askop Rd., The Crags, Western Cape, 6600, South Africa

On the edge of a forested gorge with the Tsitsikamma Mountains in the background, this lovely lodge puts you close to many of the Garden Route's most popular attractions. You will be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave your room, however, with its private verandah and stunning views. Dinners (available for guests only) featuring local seafood and venison are sociable affairs taken around a huge table in the main house. Breakfasts are enjoyed outdoors on the patio. An energetic one-hour walk through the forest will bring you to Monkeyland and Birds of Eden. The lodge is conscientious about environmental and social issues, hiring and training staff from the local community.
