Garden Route Tours, The town of Wilderness

Wilderness can be found on the East Coast of South Africa along The Garden Route. It basically has a mild summer climate throughout the year and the temperature needle almost never falls under eight degrees celsius. It offers a magnitude of fun activities, various hotels and a vibrant nightlife. Wilderness has become an internationally known holiday spot along the Garden Route and a popular overnight stop during these tours.

As far back as the late 1800s the reputation of Wilderness along the East Coast and Garden Route of South Africa, with it's natural bounty of rivers, lakes, peace and tranquillity, ideal for seaside holidays, was laid in a little stone farmhouse. Today the romantic seaside resort of Wilderness lies along the coast of South Africa, 15 km east of George between the Kaaimans River in the west and the Goukamma Nature Reserve in the east of The Garden Route, bordered by the Outeniqua Mountains in the north and the Indian Ocean in the South of Africa. Many Garden Route tours stop at the elevated edge of the town for a quick photo opportunity before driving onwards through the town.

Wilderness offers the the visitor 18 km of South Cape coastline surrounded by a national lake area with five lakes and two estuaries. The Wilderness National Park is a charming world of lakes, rivers, fens, estuaries and beaches which gently unfolds against a backdrop of lush forest and lofty mountains. This is a photo stop which is included in most of our Garden Route Tours and can be requested as a specific overnight stop on private Garden Route tours.

The charm of Wilderness is its other-worldliness; its sense of being cut off by its boundaries of sea and forest from the hectic workday world. It is an ideal base to explore the Garden Route and being close George, Sedgefield, Goukamma Nature Reserve, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and the Tsitsikamma National Park.

Wilderness offers a 2500 hectre Park with 5 lakes and rivers, 2 estuaries and roughly eighteen kilometres of coastline.
