Located just outside Plettenberg Bay, the Bitou Valley Bush Camp is nestled in the heart of the Bitou Valley in the Cape Floristic Kingdom which is the smallest, yet most diverse of the world’s six floral kingdoms, a World Heritage Site and a biodiversity hotspot. Falling within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Plettenberg Bay area is home to no less than five Blue Flag beaches and is in very close proximity to several Marine Protected Areas and breathtakingly beautiful forests – a living monument to our natural history.
Our locally sourced food is prepared by your guide and served alongside a meandering river. The camp offers guided walks and birding excursions in an area renowned for its remarkable and abundant birdlife. You will wake to the call of the Fish Eagle and recharge your soul in these beautiful surroundings.
The woody vegetation on the banks of the river surrounding the camp provides a unique habitat for birdlife that includes Fish Eagles, Kingfishers, Blue Cranes, Greater and Lesser Flamingoes, Plovers, Herons and marine birds to mention a few. This is a place where paddling in the river is for everyone, not just the ducks, and our guided bird excursions on foot and in our canoes are an unforgettable experience.
We also offer soft cycling (with our fat bikes) and guided hiking along the many trails in Plettenberg Bay along the coastline. If chilling and recharging means working on your tan or working up a sweat with activities as diverse as the multitude of plant species and bird life – then this one-of-a-kind off the grid, low to zero to positive footprint camp, will be just up your street.
