Platbos Forest Reserve is the private nature reserve to put on your radar. It’s only a two-hour drive from Cape Town and offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself into the heart of this wild yet gentle indigenous forest.
For some who have watched way too many horror movies, it might be a no, but for those who love being in the forest drenched side of nature – it is a privilege to spend some time overnight in an indigenous setting like this one.
Fun fact: Platbos is one of the largest remaining fragments of lowland Afromontane forest found between Grootvadersbosch and Table Mountain – less than 0.05% of the Western Cape is home to old-growth forest.
Their rustic and comfortable accommodation aims to provide guests with a sense of being at one with the forest environment, while still feeling right at home.
Get ready to sing Kumbaya around the fire and enjoy a city escape.
