The decision to develop the Bitou River Valley was an inspired one: although it's just 15 minutes drive from Plettenberg Bay and 25 minutes from Knysna, still more than far enough away from the trappings of wetsern civilisation. And close proximity to Plettenberg Bay - which is one of South Africa's best whale-watching destinations - means that we'll soon be able to offer you a BIG SIX EXPERIENCE that is almost unrivalled in Africa.


We've already established buffalo, wildebeest, leopard, giraffe, sable, rhino, impala, bontebok, bushbuck, zebra, kudu, bush-pig and eland at Buffalo Hills, and, by next year , you'll also be able to see elephant, and lion (The Big Five are elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhinoceros). Between May and December, the whales that visit South Africa's coast make up the sixth member of Africa's Big Six.
