Perfect holiday destination
Even though like most places the shops and restaurants are packed during December holiday periods, in Wilderness you never get the feeling of being boxed in. The beaches are clean, and especially perfect for safe long beautiful early morning walks. For swimming, the river mouth and swimming beach is perfect. Go early to ensure convenient parking, and end off your day with a meal at one of the lovely restaurants in the area. Close to the amenities of George, lovely child-friendly activity spots and the beautiful Knysna forests.
Wilderness as a destination
The so called 'Garden Route' basically stretches from Cape Town to Plettenberg Bay. But for us as a family it is the portion between Mossel Bay and Plettenberg Bay. Wilderness is the ideal central base from where to explore this portion of the Garden Route. The scenery is fantastic. Lots of good eateries close by. Much history. Even a large mall and airport within 20 minutes. Art. Honest warm earthy people. Lots of markets over weekends. This really is Eden; the paradise of South Africa. You will not find better vistas of sea and mountains anywhere. There is no such thing as 'bad weather' here...see more
Wilderness has become a little gem blossoming with good restaurants for any time of the day and very relaxing activities to do. The nature is beautiful and peaceful. The waterfall and canoeing was fun and George Golf Course was in an immaculate condition. All our dinners at Blue Olive and Solenas was excellent. The Flava Cafe was superb with their breakfast and service. Thank you to all for a wonderful experience to remember our 16th Anniversary by.
Lots to do
We spent a week between Wilderness and Sedgefield and had lots of fun. There really is lots to do in this area - close enough to visit Knysna, canoeing, beaches, forest walks. There are several bird hides as wellIt does get busy but with lots of options, you can find a quiet spot. The beaches were stunning and in December, lifeguards were present at most beaches
