For us Mossel Bay-ians with our lovely game reserves surrounding us- Plett game reserve is somewhat of an unknown quantity. I had a short visit here in 2012 and was pleasantly surprised but the beauty of the reserve nested in the hill just past Plett. The house/lodge where Ryan had booked us in was a lovely old farmhouse and very romantic. The setting was perfect, surrounded with thorn trees and sweeping views over the reserve and surrounding forests. It reminded me a little of a scene from Meryl Streep’s house in “Out of Africa” and bought back some memories of my childhood days in Kenya. The game was lovely to see and reminiscent of the local Garden Route Game Lodge. I thought the lion enclosure was a little small though. I did go some time ago and perhaps they have changed it. The rangers were very scared of the lions jumping onto the landrover and perhaps they are not happy in that rather small space?
