COVID Safety Protocols

Our Forest Accommodation is perfectly set up for self-isolating. Our secluded accommodation units afford our guests no direct contact with either our staff or other guests. We utilize cleaning and safety protocols recommended by the World Health Organisation, the Department of Health and the Department of Tourism to keep our staff and guests safe. All surfaces in the private ablutions and kitchen areas are sprayed down after departure with NeoLife’s CARE which is a non-toxic disinfectant. The active ingredient in CARE is on the list from the World Health Organization known to kill coronavirus strains and is biodegradable. Each unit is left to air for at least 24 hours before new guests arrive.

Your stay in our Forest Accommodation helps us to care-take Platbos:

5% of the monthly turnover is donated to the Platbos Conservation Trust whose responsibilities include alien clearing and maintaining the Reserve’s fire-breaks.

Please note

No outside fire wood is permitted at the Reserve! We have put strict restrictions in place to protect the forest from the Shot Hole Borer Beetle which is currently killing trees and forests in other parts of the country. Wood is for sale at Platbos for your braai needs. Thank you for helping us to protect this precious forest!
