Area Info:

Wilderness is a charming beach side village on the Western Cape Garden Route. With its long golden beaches, extensive waterways and lush indigenous forest, it is a nature lover's paradise. Wilderness lies 15 km east of George, nestled between the Outeniqua Mountains and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and is an ideal base from which to explore the world-famous Garden Route.

As far back as the late 1800s the reputation of Wilderness was established as an ideal destination for seaside holidays. A seaside boarding house was started in an old homestead ? and so began the tradition of hospitality which has made this small resort town world famous.

An outdoor style of living draws locals and visitors alike to the long stretches of sandy white beaches throughout the year.

Should you wish to venture off the beach, there is a wide variety of eateries, craft stalls, shops and art galleries to explore. Wander through the quiet forest where giant Yellowwood trees rise towards the skyline, follow Bushbuck and Duiker along quiet forest paths or watch out for the brilliant flash of crimson as a Knysna Lourie is startled from its resting place.

Wilderness not only overlooks the sea, but also the placid lagoon (Touw River Estuary), the Serpentine, which meanders between the Touw River, Island Lake and Rondevlei. This is a favourite venue for waterskiing and attracts enthusiasts from far and wide.

Recreational activities in Wilderness include kloofing, abseiling, hiking, mountain-biking, bird- and whale-watching, hang- and paragliding, horse riding, scenic drives, day tours, angling, boating and other water sports.
