A CULTURAL AND NATURAL SOJOURN
From cultural treasures to magnificent wildlife
Families will also enjoy Adventure Land in Harkerville, with activities ranging from waterslides to quad bikes.
Another must-visit is the Plett Puzzle Park, with its life-size 3D maze – a forest puzzle walk that meanders through the natural forest, and a rope maze for the kids.
Plettenberg Bay’s rich eco-systems support many kinds of creatures, big and small – which is why much emphasis is placed on conservation.
There are a number of parks offering one-of-a-kind encounters with wildlife.
One of the most famous is Monkeyland, a sanctuary for various species of free-roaming monkeys; visitors can join them in the forest on a ‘monkey safari’. Located next door is Birds of Eden, which is said to be the largest free-flight aviary in the world picture an indigenous forest with waterfalls and elevated walkways.
There are many such experiences, with some including birds of prey, snakes, wolves and more.
With its beautiful backdrop and efficient infrastructure, Plettenberg Bay hosts many annual festivals and events; look out for regular concerts, too. Some of the highlights on the calendar include the Tour de Plett, the Whale Rally, the Plett Fringe Festival and, most recently, the Plett Food Film Festival.
