Early booking via the internet was easy; paid a deposit for the first night by CC. Easy to find just minutess off the N2. Had a choice of the accomodation with Mike & Harja - the cottage was well appointed & self contained. Every detail had been thought of and we were made to feel very welcome. The security was good.

From its location in Google Maps, we suspected the Old Trading Post could be the ideal situation to discover the Garden Route.
After our stay we are absolutely seduced by the exceptional serenity of the place... and the extreme kindness and attention of Harja and Mike.
Don't look further! This is the place where you'll feel better than at home.

Wilderness offers a wide variety of activities for all ages with an abundance of hiking trails, canoe offerings and paragliding available, whilst being surrounded by some of the most pristine beaches our country has to offer. If you love nature and adventure, Wilderness is your playground. For daytrips, you have the option of visiting neighbouring areas including George, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg. This is definitely a home away from home.
