Pack a picnic basket and visit our 3 bird hides from where you will be able to watch the king fishers diving for fish and swallowing them right in front of you or try to land your own cob or grunter from the river on the boardwalk or on the beach.

Area Information:

Lying in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains in a region of incomparable beauty, Wilderness is an attractive holiday resort with beautiful beaches (blue flag status) 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.

The romantic resort 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. Wilderness is renowned for its vast stretches of beach, its peace and tranquillity and the absence of windswept headlands and wild, stormy seas. The long stretch of beach embraces the mouths of the Touw and Kaaimans Rivers, and is backed by northward cliffs over which the fringe of the forest reaches down to sea level.

The hosts, Tom and Magda were very welcoming and gave a comprehensive run down on all relevant information. They provided an excellent breakfast ,which was served on a patio with wonderful views. An added bonus was a tame Knysna Loerie who was enjoying breakfast at a bird feeding station adjacent to the patio.

Superb. 5 out of 5

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.
