Day 1 of our weekend away at the Far Hills Country Hotel saw us undertake a lengthy roadtrip through to The Crags, an activity-rich area just outside of Plettenberg Bay. Having spent most of the morning exploring the wonderful Birds of Eden bird sanctuary, we decided to grab a bite to eat at the Plett Puzzle Park, a quirky little find (right next to Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary) whose claim to fame is their life size wooden 3D maze, not to mention their unique Forest Puzzle Walk.
The kids are still too small to tackle the two above mentioned attractions (or the kiddie maze for that matter), but they had plenty of fun messing about with Plett Puzzle Park’s oversized garden games, thus giving Monty, Cheryl, Chantelle and myself more than enough time to browse the interesting little shop (filled to the brim with puzzles and other ingenious games) and then grab a light lunch from the onsite cafe.
There is a lot of bird life in the garden (and a handy identification chart as well), but the cherry on top was definitely all the little games attached to the tables – especially the naughts and crosses battlefield carved right into the table itself!
Definitely a great spot to relax and refill your energy levels (not to mention get that brain working), and I can easily see myself returning there in the future once the girls are old enough to tackle the maze with me!
