South Africa / Hunter's Country House

A synthesis of gracious elegance, sheer comfort, impeccable service and warm hospitality set in the luxuriant gardens of the Hunter’s Estate, this impressive country home stands at the heart of the Garden Route between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.

Sage @ Hunter’s offers world class dining with set menu options and top South African wines from the cellar. Breakfast is taken in the sunny glass conservatory, lunch in the dining room or on the manicured lawns. ZINZI restaurant, a unique dining alternative on the estate, offers tasty à la carte menu options in a beautiful forest setting for lunch and dinner. Younger guests can enjoy a games and activities in the supervised Cubs Corner playzone. Nearby families attractions include Birds of Eden, Monkeyland, treetop canopy tours, boat trips and whale watching in season.

When to visit South Africa

A year round destination, but expect cooler weather in the Eastern and Western Capes during winter, between June and August. Mpumalanga stays warm year round with temperatures, humidity and rainfall all increasing in the summer months between October and March. The whales return to the waters around Hermanus from July to November, and the spring months of August and September are particularly colourful along the Garden Route.

The prime time for game viewing is generally the drier winter and spring months from April to September when animals frequent the waterholes. During the wetter summer months between October and March, animals can still be viewed but are more widely dispersed – from December to February there may be more sightings of newborn animals.
