Knysna Elephant Park

The Knysna Elephant Park (est. 1994) was the first facility in South Africa to house and care for orphaned African elephants. Today, it has become a world class facility, having cared for and raised more than forty elephants. These animals include relocated animals, orphaned calves, elephants rescued from culls and ex-circus animals. Some have become part of the resident herd, others have moved onto other reserves and facilities in the Western and Eastern Cape, depending on their personalities, bonds with other animals and welfare needs. The present KEP herd numbers ten - the largest domesticated matriarchal herd in the country. Our style of management offers guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with our elephants, on elephant terms. Responsible and educational interactions allow guests to appreciate the awe-inspiring presence of these animals, but still give the elephants the space and freedom to choose where they want to move, what they want to eat and who they want to interact with. There are no fences to spoil the close encounter and our environment encourages elephants to exhibit natural behaviours. Elephant experiences include Daily Tours (departing from reception every 30 mins), as well as Picnic Breakfast  Elephant Walks, Afternoon Elephant Walks, Sundowner Group Packages, as well as Sleepovers in the Elephant Lodge. No reservations are necessary for daily tours, but bookings are essential for all other elephant encounters. Visitors to the park are privileged to have a personal encounter with our gentle giants, and leave having gained a new-found respect for these animals, as well as a better understanding of the African elephant and its plight across the continent. Most importantly, by visiting the Park and experiencing our elephant herd, guests make a direct contribution to elephant husbandry and care. Visitors to the Park enable us to give our elephants the best possible facilities, nutrition and care. They also allow us to offer other elephants in need the chance of a better life. Facilities include an on-site research unit, volunteer programme, interpretation centre, restaurant and playground, curio shop. The Park is open 365 days a year, from 09h00 to 15h00 daily. ELEPHANT LODGE Sleep-over with elephants The Parks' elephants enjoy world-class facilities: during the day they roam the property, but at the end of the day they hurry back to their boma / night camp for a pampered night's sleep. Built within the elephant sleeping quarters, our Extraordinary Elephant Lodge offers guests the unique opportunity to spend the night with a herd of African elephants. Enjoy your elephant sleep-over in unique accommodation overlooking the boma; or spend the evening relaxing in the communal lounge, watching the elephants browse, feed and snooze... RESTAURANT AND CURIO SHOP Our Elephant Park restaurant serves wholesome meals, with a cozy interior and fireplace for winter or our deck overlooking our dam for summer. Our unique Elephant Curio Shop prides itself in having an extraordinary range of Elephant curios sourced from cottage industry crafters that captures the spirit and love of our elephants!

10 Keurbaai

Treat yourself to an unforgettable holiday! This comfortable, fully equipped, very spacious self- catering beachfront family home will restore your equanimity. There are five airy bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a separate shower, and a guest toilet. The vast, partly double volume, open plan lounge, living, dining and kitchen area is perfect for entertaining, and the dining table seats twelve. In winter the huge Jetmaster fireplace creates a cosy atmosphere. All rooms have magnificent views with combinations of sea, sky and beach. Three of the bedrooms and the living area open onto sea views with large sliding glass doors. The picturesque paved driveway leads to double garages and adjoining staff quarters. Our favourite feature of the house is the immense tiled deck that surrounds the house on three sides. From the deck one experiences the essence of beachfront living: the panoramic view. One can sit for hours and watch dolphins play directly in front of the house. During winter and spring the bay teems with Southern Right-, and Humpback whales; and year-round one can see the resident Bryde's whales. A 10km sweep of unspoilt, beach extends to the east and west of the house, flanked on the west by a magnificent view of Robberg and Plettenberg Bay; and on the east by the distant peaks of the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The estate features a private boardwalk, just metres from the driveway, that provides direct access onto the beach. In the evenings we enjoy the sunsets, and then watch as the jewel-encrusted hill that is Plettenberg Bay at night comes to light. Keurbaai estate comprises 20 hectares of privately-owned, secluded coastal bush environment. One can simply assimilate the peace and serenity of 10 Keurbaai, or of course enjoy the attractions, activities, and facilities that abound in this prime tourist destination. Keurbaai is a mere 2 minutes away from Thyme and Again the best delicatessen on the Garden Route. Plettenberg Bay, where you can find everything that city life offers, is just a 10 minutes drive from Keurbaai. Come and enjoy our remarkable retreat where many international guests have found heaven.

The home is classified as Superior by the AA Travelguide Attractions In The Region Around Plettenberg Bay The Garden Route - Plettenberg Bay is in the centre of the Garden Route which, as its name suggests is a picturesque stretch of coastline which starts in George and Herolds Bay to the west through the Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and then heading east from Plettenberg Bay, Natures Valley, a beautiful little holiday village on the coast, Storms River and beyond. There are a wide variety of activities and attractions in and around Plett. In the Craggs one can visit African Wild Cats, Birds of Eden as well as Raptors in the world's largest single span aviary, an elephant sanctuary and even snakes at the Lawnwood Snake Park. Bird watching can be undertaken with Bitou Bird Adventures, at Buffalo Hills game viewing is on offer, there are horse rides through the forest and a wolf sanctuary off the N2 near Harkerville can be visited. Of course Robberg itself, a mere three kilometres from the home, has splendid hikes of different categories affording one magnificent views over the bay and out to sea. There are four excellent golf courses in and around Plettenberg Bay. Heading to the east towards Port Elizabeth and beyond:- Bloukrans Bungee Jumping - 45 kms or a 35 minutes drive. The Bloukrans Bungee jump, started in 1989, has an international reputation. It is reportedly the world's highest jump being 216 meters high. Storms River Mouth 70 kms or 1 hours drive. Beautiful scenery awaits you as you walk along the boardwalk and suspension bridge at the mouth of this river. Also in the area is a guided tour in the Tsitsikama National Park which incorporates a trip to a cove where one can see ancient rock paintings and a trip up the Storms River. Also in the area is the Tsitsikama Marine Reserve where one can do some snorkelling and view the brightly coloured fish and reef. The Otter Hiking Trail is a world famous hiking trail that starts at the Storms River Mouth but needs to be booked at the National Parks Board at least a year in advance. This trail is physically taxing and not for the faint hearted but extremely rewarding for those that are able to undertake it. Tsitiskama Forest - located in the area around Storms River, is an ancient forest. There are some magnificently tall and old yellowwood trees in these forests. A Tsitsikama Canopy tour will undoubtedly remain an experience to remember. Such a canopy tour is in a full body harness along a steel cable moving from one platform to another (ten of them) positioned high up in the giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees that are abundant in the forest providing a habitat for a multitude of birds and wildlife. The canopy tour lasts about 3 ½ hours. Jeffrey's Bay 165 kms or 2 hours drive. Jeffreys Bay is an International Surfing Competition site. Baviaanskloof Wilderness - 240 kms or 3 ½ hours drive to the start of this beautiful valley. The dirt road crosses the Gamtoos River two or three times. These river crossings need to be waded through - there are no bridges - so one should avoid visiting the area in the rainy season (October to March). A 4 x 4 is recommended although a vehicle with good ground clearance should manage comfortably. The valley itself is 95 kms long which will take more than one day to absorb simply because of the beauty of the valley. Fly fishing is popular in places on the pristine Gamtoos River that flows along the valley. Addo Elephant Park is 300 kms 3 ½ hours drive away, beyond Port Elizabeth. This is a popular Big Five National Park with chalet accommodation facilities within the park. Should accommodation be required in the park one should book at least six months ahead of time so as to avoid any disappointment. Heading westward towards George and Oudtshoorn: Knysna and the Lagoon - 38 kms 30 minutes drive. Treat yourself to a pleasure cruise with Rivercat Ferries on the lagoon - a hit for sundowners - while a visit to the Featherbed Nature Reserve is always a pleasant outing. However to get there one will need to be ferried across the lagoon, the journey passing close to the Knysna Heads to the Featherbed Jetty. The lagoon is also popular with fishermen. Oudtshoorn: An old farming town 160 kms or 2 hours drive from Plettenberg Bay. The Highgate Ostrich Show Farm is a top attraction, was established 100 years ago by the Hooper family. It offers guided tours, ostrich racing, a restaurant and curio shop. Besides the ostrich attraction there is a Bengal Tiger breeding program at The Cango Wildlife Ranch located a little way out of town on the way to the Cango Caves and the Swartberg Mountain pass. Cango Caves 185 kms or 2 ¼ hours drive, being 25 kms beyond Oudtshoorn in the Swartberg mountain range. The Cango Caves are spectacular. One can easily spend three hours and more in this most beautiful cave. Die Hel in the Swartberg is located 260 kms or a 5 hours drive along the same route that would take you to the Cango Caves. This is an area with an interesting history. A community lived in this 25 km long valley completely self-sufficient for well over a century. It was only in 1960 that a road into the area was built. Being part of the same mountain range a visit to "Die Hel" could be added to a visit to the Cango Caves, with this valley located only 76 kms beyond these caves. However the last 35 kms need to be taken slowly as the dirt road goes through several switchbacks to get to the bottom of the valley. It got its name from the postman in years gone by who had to make the trip down into the valley with his donkey to deliver post to the community. It is an exquisite little valley. GOLF 18 Hole Golf Courses in the region of which four are in the top 100 in South Africa! Plettenberg Bay Country Club - 6 kms or a 9 minute drive, one of the country's top 100 courses. Goose Valley Golf Estate - 9 kms or a 15 minute drive. In the valley adjacent to the Bitou Estuary. Pezula Golf Estate - 40 kms or a 40 minute drive from Sondel Beach House. Positioned on the hill overlooking the sea above the famous Knysna Heads. A Links course and one of the top 100 golf courses in the country. Simola Golf Estate - 45 kms or a 40 minute Drive. A Parkland Golf Course and also one of the top 100 courses. Pinnacle Point Golf Estate 150 kms or 1 ¾ hours drive . This is one of the top 100 golf courses in the country. Prince Alfred Pass - a scenic drive of 60 kms or 1 ½ hours to the top of the pass. The gravel road winds its way up the mountains with Avontuur another 18 kms beyond the top of the pass. A round trip of 176 kms back to Plettenberg Bay via the beautiful Knysna forests and Knysna Town will entail a four hour drive. The pass was designed and built by Thomas Bain who took seven years to complete it between 1860 to 1867. The pass has four biomes that it goes through with the dirt road crossing the river 7 times. Care should be taken when travelling along this pass, constantly on the look-out for oncoming vehicles whose presence is often indicated by dust in the sky ahead. The road is fairly narrow in places. Whale watching - the bay is often visited by the Southern Right Whale and on occasions these large gentle mammals can be seen from the balcony of the home no more than 400 meters away. They sometimes simply wallow just beyond the breakers. But besides the chance to see the whales from the home one often sees schools of dolphins surfing in the breakers. Then of course one can undertake an ocean safari departing from the village itself and get to see the whales, dolphins and seals from much closer.

Just a bit further is Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve and many action sports like swimming with the seals, whale and dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, abseiling, canyoneering, bungi -jumping and sky-diving. Hiking in the forests or beaches is popular because of our spectacular scenery and the birdlife is extraordinary! Nature's Valley is also just a short distance away. The white sands and clear blue waters provide the perfect setting to while-away lazy afternoons. Other beautiful beaches include Robberg and Keurbooms. The area has also become well known for polo, and has been producing very fine wines in recent years! Bramon Wine Farm are our neighbours and you are a five minute drive away from their wine-tasting and excellent restaurant which specializes in tapas food of a very high quality. The Mill Centre is also nearby with its various craft shops and the Pepper Mill restaurant. Plettenberg Bay is an easy 20 minute drive away, with many more fine dining opportunities and plenty shopping! But of course, the Garden Route is most famous for its spectacular beaches, the Knysna and Tsitsikamma Forests, and beautiful wide river mouths. With our cottage as your base, you can discover the Garden Route, from Wilderness to Jeffreys Bay, the one day hike on the Otter Trail from Storms River mouth to the waterfalls and shorter walks through the ancient indigenous forests in the area. ------------------------------ ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY Please place recyclables in the bin provided.
