Hog Hollow Country Lodge

“If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live.” Lin Yutang (1895 – 1976) Hog Hollow Country Lodge, is set on the edge of indigenous forest with breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys and Tsitsikamma Mountains. Superb breakfasts are served out on the boma deck in the warmth of the morning sun, or inside by the fire on chillier days, while our scrumptious communal dinners are served in the conviviality of the candle-lit main house.
