African Array Lodge is nestled between an array of wild flowers on a high cliff in a Private reserve only five min from the center of town. Apart from the amazing full Panoramic view of the Piesang valley the hostel is cozy and has a wonderful homely atmosphere, perfect for travelers who like to be out of town and experience the beauty and nature the Garden Route is known for.
During the day we offer total peace and tranquility. Relax on one of the hammock in the garden overlooking the best view in Plettenberg bay or make yourself at home on the sun deck and watch as the fish eagles soar over the lake and calling out the songs of Africa. Take advantage of the free internet while sipping on an ice cold beer and stay in touch with your loved ones.
At night we light the fires inside and outside relax under the Milky Way while getting to know our guest and listening to some amazing travel stories. Satellite TV is available for the guest who would like to just chill on a movie or watch a game live on a big screen. Try one of our dinners and you just might decide to stay one more night. Before leaving for your days activities, start with a breakfast on the sundeck and a good old cup of the world’s number one coffee. Hospitality at its best!
