What has Plett got to offer?

For some, its long, lazy days on sunny beaches; for others its Plett’s buzzing night life and high season cocktail circuit! There are those who are up early to ride the forests and go parachuting and bungee jumping… and then there are the monkeys and elephants and other wild animals and birds dotted throughout Plett that make for the perfect fun-filled leisure time.

Oh, and don’t forget to visit our 16 wine estates, go on a township tour, visit a township tavern, or take part in any number of activities that make up the Plett Summer Festival.

Now that we have your attention, there’s a lot more to come!
