The Crags

Rainforest Ridge is located in The Crags, Plettenberg Bay which has and always will be the gem in the crown of the Garden Route! We are located overlooking the most gorgeous of gorges only 20mins from the centre of Plett & 20mins the other way is the Western/Eastern Cape border and the magnificent Tsitsikamma national park borders Rainforest Ridge!

There is an endless plethora of day trips and activities you can enjoy while using the Ridge as your comfy home away from home.

Here directly in The Crags we are lucky to have one of SAs most beloved rural restaurants run by a true master and award winning chef! Peppermill Restaurant is only 3kms from the lodge and serves up the most divine food at affordable prices.

We highly recommend while your staying here in The Crags to pay a visit to some of these top class animal sanctuaries which are all right here on our doorstop (listen closely that's the howler monkeys in the distance!)
