PBGR: Sabrina Love Ocean Challenge

Natalie du Toit at a previous event showing her support!
We here at Plettenberg Bay Game Resere love to support local charities, and the Sabrina Love Foundation has become one very special charity!

This event looks to be a big hit, just as it has in the previous years - so please come and show your support!

Sabrina Love Ocean Challenge is presented by Stonehage and Discovery.
Without doubt this has become Plett's leading sports event – The Sabrina is more than just a sports event – it has become the main fundraiser for the Sabrina Love Foundation which assists kids with special needs in the Bitou region. Every cent of your entry fee is channelled directly into the fund.
Plett in December with the Festive Season in full swing has a vibe second to none. There is something for everyone at the Sabrina Love, from the ultra fit ocean swimmers, to those looking for a gentle walk along the beach. Your options include the 10 km Road Run, 15 km Surfski Challenge, 6 km Ocean Swim, Kids Of Steel Duathlon and if this is not enough try the Lake Swim, Trail Run, Triathlon or the 25 km Mountain Bike on the second day at Kurland Estate.

DATE: 28th & 29th Decemer 2012

Day 1 – Plettenberg  Bay Central Beach
DAY 2 – Kurland Estate

PAWS Street Collection

Please Help Us
PAWS is hosting their next Street Collection on Friday, 30 November 2012. If you are willing, they are looking for volunteers to help with this event.

Contact Di Butlin on 082 569 2571 if you're able to help out.

These last two months, we've shown a lot of interest in helping out PAWS - this is because not all animals are lucky enough to be afforded an entire game reserve to live out their lives, in peace and with protection.

We hope you showed your support, and made a difference!

PBGR: Horse Safari's - You've never done anything like it!

Your most memorable African experience will be a horseback safari at Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve.

There is no better way to view the game which, accustomed to the presence of the horses, will allow them within very close range.
On horseback you can go where vehicles have no access and are free to roam with the game or track them down.

Feel the grass and bush brush past you, breathe in the fresh air around you and listen to the sounds of Africa.

On the two-hour horse safari guests are accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable game ranger, keen to share his insight with you.
Our horses are well-schooled and friendly and will provide a comfortable, easy ride for even the most inexperienced riders. 

After the safari, relax at the bar with a drink and share your experiences!
Horse safaris at Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve are open to day visitors and are scheduled daily at 10h00 and 15h00, weather permitting.

PBGR: We're here for you all year round!

Plettenberg Bay has one of the most temperate climates in the world, and the weather is suitable for game viewing all year round. During mid-summer temperatures average about 26 ÂșC by day. Winter temperatures are moderately cooler during the day but warm enough to enjoy the outdoors. 

So, there really isn't any excuse for why you can't have an amazing time out viewing the wildlife in mid-winter!!

Book with us today for your winter break (or if you prefer summer - we're here too!).

Guest Review - Out of Africa style; Great Atmosphere

A very good location: 15min by car from Plett but it already feels like being in the wild. The lodge is decorated with very good taste and elegance. The fireplaces, sofas and astonishing views are an invitation to relax and unite with nature. The included 2 hour safari tour is fantastic although the reserve is not amongst the biggest.
Last but not least: children are welcome (ours was 6) and the rooms are spacious.
Definitely a place where to stay!
Stayed October 2012
Thanks Stephanie Swiss! We're very glad that you had such a great time, and we hope you'll be coming back soon!
