Animal numbers doubled at Plett Game Reserve

Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve has been really busy lately!  Many of our animals have grown and we have plenty of new arrivals too.  All the animal numbers have almost doubled and the crocodiles are doing very well. All this growth and abundance is due to good rain and lots of water in our dams to keep the grass quality good.

From next month, all the telephone lines above the ground will be buried and no lines will be visible anymore. The operation will take around 1 month to complete and will be really good for the giraffes who occasionally knock into the telephone wires.

All about our chickens

Our chickens provide great excitement to guests as they cluck around the shed looking for shrubs and insects.
They are great for keeping insects away and also we use their droppings for the garden fertilizer....that's another reason why gardens are growing so well.
The chickens' eggs are sold to our staff and are so natural and healthy to eat.

Blooming gardens at PBGR

At Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, our gardens are looking spectacular after the 44mm of rain we have had so far in April.  Our flowers are in bloom, the sun is shining and everything is GREEN GREEN GREEN!
