The sixteen suites are all situated in the gardens surrounding the main house. Decorated in earthy colours, with hand crafted artefacts scattered throughout, all feature king size beds (or twin if you prefer), a well stocked mini bar and a hi-fi. Sit out on your private wooden deck listening to the sounds of a garden humming with life, enveloped in the warmth of the African sun.
No TV, but the view is better than Sky!
A South African bed time story (don’t worry, we don’t test you!)
A hot water bottle for those chilly winter evenings.
Hand-baked cookies in tightly sealed jars as the monkeys do LOVE to eat them too.
There are three double storey suites suitable for families with children aged 12 or under sharing with their parents. Children are accommodated downstairs on a double sleeper couch and an ottoman, slightly shorter than a single bed but wider. We organise baby-sitting, special turn downs each evening with a glass of fresh milk, a Gingerbread man, children’s stories and a whole box of toys and other interesting things. And we have buckets and spades and body boards for those lazy family days at the beach. There is a communal TV in the Far Lounge at Hog Hollow, but none in the rooms and no fireplaces in the double storey suites!
Notes for children & adults
Hog Hollow Country Lodge is set on the edge of the Matjies River gorge and as such it has a very steep landscape profile. Please also be aware that there are drop-off’s from the balconies and decks. The family rooms do have specially designed balconies which are higher with vertical poles. We have unfenced dams and an unfenced pool on the premises so parents and children are asked to be very careful when around these areas. No children are allowed at the pool/dam areas if they are not in the care of their parents and/or legal guardians. Please don’t feed the monkeys – they are absolutely adorable, but we need to keep them in their natural wild habitat and not encourage any form of domestication.
