The scenery is beautiful..
In the southern region of South Africa between 600 and 500 million years ago, hot magma forced its way to the surface and over time, hardened to form granite. The city of George lies on this hard rock in one of the most scenic parts of the country known as the Garden Route.
George is the largest city along this route and a golfing paradise where South Africa’s top rated golf course is located. With leading academic institutions in the city, major retail facilities and a domestic airport, George is a busy business hub for the region and a convenient stopover for travel between the Cape Town and Port Elizabeth port cities.
A stay in George affords the visitor the opportunity to explore the city’s rich heritage, the slave tree, interesting museums and architecture, and to breathe in fresh country air in a city surrounded by the stunningly beautiful Outeniqua Mountain range.
