Where to stay between Plettenberg and Shamwari?

In November we will move from staying at Plettenberg and moving up to Shamwari.. Where does anyone recommend staying that's a reasonable distance to get to the game reserve on the day?

We don't fancy PE ..even for an overnight...maybe we are wrong but thought there may be somewhere more attractive. There are so many fabulous places to stay want to make the most of every night!

Any thoughts anyone?

Saint Francis Bay might be a good bet, just about exactly half way between Plett and Shamwari:

or one of the other great places near St Francis. see the link below.

I feel Jeffrey's Bay would be a good choice.
