Plett tourism wins
Plett Tourism has announced two tourism products, Africanyon Adventures and Plettenberg – a Forever Resort, have won the Western Cape round of the Lilizela Tourism Awards. The recognise and reward tourism players and businesses which work passionately and with pride to deliver a world- class product and service, and whose delivery grows South Africa’s global destination competitiveness. Africanyon Adventures is an adventure tourism business located in The Crags, Plettenberg Bay. Africanyon provides high-quality adventure activities borne from a true passion for the outdoors. Their flagship activity is canyoning (called Kloofing in South Africa and Gorge Walking elsewhere). Africanyon’s canyoning focuses on creating an awareness and an appreciation for the environment, in a location that would otherwise remain hidden and inaccessible to most. Clients are guided through indigenous terrain packed with adventure and fun for the novice to the more experienced. Visitors can abseil in and around waterfalls, take a cliff jump and experience the unique rock-pool zip- line – a combination for the perfect outdoor adventure. “The AfriCanyon Team are so deserved of this award,” director, Rogan Hindmarch said. “Years of training, commitment and adherence to the core ethos of providing professionally guided excursions into the unknown wilderness have culminated in this prestigious South African award for Best Adventure in the Western Cape. “Against stiff competition we could not be happier to receive the recognition of our cumulative efforts. “Well done to each and every one of our team members for achieving and maintaining the high standards being acknowledged. You so deserve this,” he said. Plettenberg – a Forever Resort, is primly positioned along the banks of the Keurbooms River in Plettenberg Bay. It is central to Plett’s wealth of eco-adventures, animal experiences and leisure outdoor activities. Here you will find three-star luxury forest self-catering log cabins with river views and brick chalets, each with its own cozy fireplace. All booked accommodation has its own select satellite TV. For the more adventurous, relax in the picturesque, riverside caravan and camping park sites. All sites have power points and are positioned in a landscape dotted with Yellowwood and Stinkwood trees. And after a day filled with a string of exhilarating activities, tuck into a braai or “potjie” at sunset. Treat the family to a ferry cruise, frolic on the beaches, spot dolphins or southern right whales, explore the Otter or Robberg trails or simply treat the kids to a feast of fun at the resort.
