Heaven on earth... - Wilderness is a paradise! The people are so chilled, and the town is so peaceful and beautiful. A must for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy all the Garden Route has to offer.

Hoekwil Town of Garden Route

Close enough to Wilderness - I was not sure if Hoekwil was going to be close enough to Wilderness and was a little hesitant to stay there. But as the accommodation prices were better than in Wilderness I decided to stay there. PERFECT if you want to go to Wilderness but don't pay the expensive beach cottage prices! It has an amazing feeling and a view that will blow you away! A definite YES!
