Taxi Buses.

The informal network of mini-bus taxis is pretty comprehensive, but good luck trying to understand it! Cheaper than the mainline operators and these guys will also stop anywhere along their route.

To reach Wild Spirit from Plettenberg Bay you need a taxi heading east on the N2. Taxis originate in the town centre or can be hailed on the main road. Ask the driver to stop at Kurland. From there give us a ring and we will collect you for free!

We offer shuttle services to and from the major attractions and transport hubs that surround Wild Spirit Lodge. Please contact us for more details.

Travelling by Car.

We are situated exactly 3km along the R102 Nature's Valley Road, just off the N2. The N2 junction with the R102 Nature's Valley is located at The Crags, 13km west of the Tsitsikamma Toll Gate and 20km east of Plettenberg Bay. Once you are on the R102, look out to the left for the large brown sign to Khoinania/Wild Spirit/Heidehof. Turn onto the gravel road, which leads you to home base!
