Forest Villa @ Hog Hollow

The Forest Lodge – at Hog Hollow
A Four-bedroomed mini-lodge 400 metres from the Lodge at Hog Hollow and next door to the three bedroomed villa. So while it’s completely private, it’s close to the rest of the lodge.

Forest Lodge is ideal for small groups travelling and for families.

Forest Lodge has four spacious bedrooms, with equally spacious en-suite bathrooms (separate bath and shower). The rooms all have glorious views over the Tsitsikamma Mountains and indigenous forest.
Two bedrooms are situated upstairs and two bedrooms are downstairs.

There is an open plan lounge area, with a full DstV bouquet and fireplace downstairs for those cooler evenings and books to read & games to play. A fully stocked honesty bar, including an excellent selection of local wines.

Outside there is a wooden deck overlooking the mountains and forest. There is a 15x3m swimming pool with loungers and private sitting areas to enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings. The swimming pool is unfenced, so parents and/or guardians do need to ensure their children are strictly supervised at all times while in the pool vicinity.

Restaurants at Hog Hollow Country Lodge

Hog Hollow restaurant

Hog Hollow dining caters for in-house guests only. The choice of dining around the communal candle-lit main table, or to be seated separately, or even outside on a balmy African evening, is yours. We offer an optional set three course dinner each evening. There is always a choice of starter and main courses, a vegetarian menu, and the chefs can cater for almost all dietary requirements: wheat intolerance, diabetic diets, vegans, etc. Our kitchen is not Kosher or Halaal, but we have successfully accommodated these specific dietary requirements. We do, obviously need to know these requirements in advance. We also offer a range of children-friendly dishes. Light lunches are served on request too. For those opting to eat out, we assist our guests to make reservations at the variety of restaurants in and around the area.
