There’s a lot to love about visiting Plett over the festive season – beautiful weather, lazy beach days, bustling restaurants and wine farms, and a busy, action-packed polo season.

The Plett Polo Club is based on our estate. It is widely considered the leading polo club in the country, if not the entire African continent. So, for those days when you want to swap sea and sand for stomping divets, there is a full programme on offer to keep you (and the kids) entertained.
