After five visits there is not much to say, other than it feels like coming home to an oasis in this mad world.

Lovely, lovely, lovely … I couldn’t think of a better place to stay in Plett.

Thank you for letting me play with Zinzi. Thank you for my chocolates. I enjoyed staying here. I liked the house & my bed. I loved the canoes because I have never done it before.



This is a lovely place to stay, the welcome, the location & the attention to detail to make guests feel more than welcome. Comfortable beds. Perfect breakfasts. It was a pleasant surprise to have fresh muffins & scones with that home-made taste.



What a romantic place to stay on Valentine’s Day – actually ANY day. We’ve had a delightful time in this peaceful haven & Sue is the icing on the cake! Lovely!

Just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful stay and for looking after us so well. We thought Bitou was just delightful. Many thanks.

Bitou River Lodge was a wonderful choice, this place is extraordinary beautiful, all is prepared in a lovingly way, beginning from the breakfast with fresh-baked muffins and many other mouth-watering food until the gorgeous rooms. The river with uncountable birds is a wonderful experience to explore with canoes. It wasn`t the last time we visit Bitou River Lodge! Thanks to Sue for this unforgettable time!


Bitou River Lodge was a highlight, primarily down to the generous hospitality of the owner (and I don’t think I’ve ever eaten so many delicious things for breakfast in one sitting before !!), and the thoughtful touches around the accommodation which made it feel very much like home for the 3 nights we stayed
