Wilderness has become an internationally sought after holiday resort. It is renowned as much as for its natural beauty, vast stretches of beach, tranquility and calm seas, as it is for its hospitality. Whilst Wilderness is the convenient area for exploring the Garden Route, it offers a rich diversity of attractions. Within the village are coffee shops, bistros, Mini Market and many restaurants. Bird-watching is a rare and unique experience, for here is a tapestry of interwoven wetlands, forests, mountains, beaches, open fields and fynbos that provide habitat for over the 200 species. Canoeing on the Touw River or the Serpentine – which meanders between the Touw River and 3 lakes is a popular and relaxing pastime.
Most apartments are self catering, you have the option to make your own breakfast and enjoy eating in the garden right at the beach.
The Wilderness Village Centre is only 2 minutes walk across the road with a Mini Market and 12 restaurants, laundromat, post office, Tourist Info and a variety of small shops. 6 km away is the bustling Garden Route Shopping Mall with Supermarkets, cinemas, many restaurants and shops, a good place to be on a rainy day.
Please note the markets: Milkwood Village (across the road from us) Friday night from 19.00 till 21.00 and on Saturday mornings 7.00 till 12.00: the famous Regional Farmers Market in Segefield, 13 km to drive. Or the smaller market in George, 6 km drive.
Sports: You can enjoy mountain biking, whale and dolphin watching, paragliding, horse riding, scenic drives and day tours as well as surfing, canoeing, kayaking, horse riding, motor glider flights, hang gliding and hiking trails.
The indigenous forest at the 800-year old Woodville Big Tree is a favourite. Excellent viewpoints include the Map of Africa for its breathtaking scenery of lakes, forests, mountains and coast. Dolphin's Point, which is known for its whale and dolphin watching. Set in the hills behind Wilderness, between the mighty Outeniquas and the sea, Hoekwil is an unspoiled little town from the past. The views of lakes, sea, mountains and valleys from this lofty rural village are astounding.
On a rainy day you can visit the museums or enjoy shopping at the Garden Route Mall with its many shops, cinemas and restaurants.
With all these attractions basking in year-round sunshine, a splendid winter climate where balmy, daytime temperatures rarely fall below 10 °C, and a well-earned reputation for hospitality, Wilderness is truly the Garden Route's premier holiday destination.
Whether you are into sports or want to enjoy a laid back holiday, soaking up the sun on the beach, the Garden Route can cater for your every need. Knysna 20 min., Plettenberg Bay 50 min., Mossel Bay 25 min.
