Things to do in Wilderness

Lying in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains in a region of incomparable beauty, Wilderness is an attractive holiday destination with beautiful beaches and numerous vantage points from which to watch the whales and dolphins.

As far back as the late 1800's the reputation of Wilderness with its natural bounty of rivers and lakes and intrinsic peace and tranquillity, ideal for seaside holidays, was established in a little stone farmhouse.

A seaside boarding house was established in the old homestead - and so began the tradition of hospitality which has made this small resort town famous all over the world.

Renowned for its vast stretches of beach, peace and tranquility ... the romantic destination of Wilderness lies 15 km east of George, between the Kaaimans River in the West and the Goukamma Nature Reserve in the east, bordered by the Outeniqua Mountains in the north and the Indian Ocean in the south.
