Guided Hiking in Plettenberg Bay & surrounds
The Garden Route lies within one of the world's prime biodiversity hotspots - the Cape Floristic Region comprising one of the smallest but richest floral kingdoms in the world, an area without doubt that boasts some of the most spectacularly beautiful coastline in South Africa, with marine treasures - two Hope Spots and three Marine Protected Areas, possessing historic archaeological sites that date back as early as 120 000 years.
It is an area that works tirelessly towards ensuring the habitat remains intact and the diversity of the region is maintained. The aesthetic value of this area and the associated recreational, educational and tourism benefits this brings, contributes significantly to greater understanding the importance of this area.

Where do we stay:
Located just outside Plettenberg Bay, our very own off the grid Biomimicry Camp is nestled in the heart of the Bitou Valley in the Cape Floristic Kingdom.
At this family getaway all you are required to do is relax and immerse yourself in the natural environment. This experience is enhanced by your accommodation which is sheltered under a canopy of indigenous forest next to the Bitou River.
Our luxury tents come with comfy beds and fresh white linen, our food is sourced locally and prepared in our bush kitchen, served alongside the meandering Bitou River. If sleeping to the sound of a gently flowing river and waking to the cry of Fish Eagles is for you – then look no further.
- The camp has eight of its own Fat Bikes for unlimited use while you are staying with us
- We have three Kayaks moored on our own jetty in the river which is also safe for swimming
- We also have three Stand Up Paddleboards - seeing the Bitou River on a SUP has never been so much fun!
- Our Bird Hide is situated near to the camp and is perfect for sundowners and photography
