Activities

Plettenberg Bay is considered the jewel of the Garden Route and Tarn Country House is perfectly situated just minutes away from some of the best attractions in the World. 

A stone’s throw from Tarn you can find everything for a perfect holiday, from seaside restaurants to the Crags hillside vineyards, from wildlife at Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Tenikwa and The Elephant Sanctuary to Pletts perfectly groomed golf courses.  Also nearby is the Tsitsikamma Forest and Robberg Peninsulas with amazing and unique indigenous fauna and flora. 

Plettenberg Bay itself also has a feast of fun just waiting to be sampled with incredible outdoor sporting activities and amazing wildlife experiences. Take a boat trip to view dolphins, whales and other sea life, winding along the breathtaking coastline, and experience one of the best whale watching tours in South Africa. 

The well known and quaint town of Knysna is only a 45 minute drive from us, where you can enjoy a walk with the Knysna Elephants and experience these majestic creatures, take a walk in the Knysna Garden of Eden, and experience the beauty and tranquility of the forest.  

A not to be missed, one stop destination, Tarn Country House often becomes a cherished destination and many of our guests become friends, visiting us time and time again, making memories that last a lifetime.
