Wilderness Accommodation

Wilderness is an eco-tourist's paradise in the heart of the Garden Route. Nestling between the warm Indian Ocean and the Outeniqua Mountains, the village forms the gateway to the Wilderness Lakes National Park, which is well known for its scenic beauty and abundance of birdlife. There are a wide range of outdoor activities in the area, including walks on the beach, gentle hikes in indigenous forest, canoeing on the lagoon or even paragliding and abseiling.

Wilderness really is the Pearl of the Garden Route. This little village lies very centrally in the temperate Southern Cape, just 15km east of George. A veritable treasure of unspoiled nature, it nestles between the tannin-coloured Kaaimans river and the Goukamma Nature reserve. Its greatest asset is endless pristine stretches of beach, tranquil, secluded and fanned by soft sea breezes. During the winter months a special treat are the Southern Right Whales that can be spotted using the 18km of protected coastline to come in close to shore and calve.

The Serpentine river meanders through Island lake, Rondevlei and Langvlei making the perfect home for many species of wetland birds. This forms part of the 2500 ha of Wilderness National park, the eco-system here is rare and sensitive and rightly protected. Many beautiful walks and well marked hikes make this a paradise for nature lovers. Water sports can be enjoyed at Island lake so there is something for everyone. Whether seeking a gentle nature filled break or a vigorous outdoor holiday Wilderness really does have something for everyone. Lots to do, lots to see, the perfect place to make special memories.
