Things To Do In Plettenberg Bay

Plettenberg Bay is all about the natural splendour. Free time can be spent on beach saunters and forest hikes or why not try your hand at body-boarding; getting out in the ocean will change up how you see the bay.     

Tsitsikamma National Park is one of the top attractions here. Sure, a stroll through the forest will be pretty spectacular, but for those of you seeking adventure, opt for our 'active' expeirence - the Zipline & Canopy Tour. As you glide through the treetops, learn the ecology of this primeval tract as you go. 

Wildlife and South Africa, they’re inextricable. And, in Plett it’s no different. Select our 'wildlife' experience and you'll have the opportunity to spot the extra two members of South Africa's "Big Seven" - the Southern Right Whale and the Great White Shark on a whale watching excursion

Whale breaching in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

With such an incredible array of species calling this country their home, it’s quite easy to forget to give a monkeys about the monkeys. On a safari you may have bigger fish to fry, but in Plett Bay's Monkeyland these pesky primates take centre stage. Birds, are too, often overlooked. You don’t have to be an avid birdwatcher to enjoy a trip to Birds of Eden. This is the largest single dome free flight aviary in the world making it something of a spectacle.
