For visitors and residents alike the site should give you a wealth of information about the history, geology and on-going activities in and around Wilderness. 

Visit our website (link below) where you will find photo galleries, articles of interest, calendars of events and a comprehensive directory of activities in and around Wilderness.

The Garden Route, and Wilderness in particular, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Long sandy beaches, forested rivers, lakes, and mountains abound. Crossing over the mountains one enters a different world, that of the semi-arid Klein (small) Karoo.

At low water it is possible to walk over 50kms along the beach from Wilderness to Knysna. This takes you past towering cliffs and  massive vegetation covered dunes, flat rock formations, rough seas, and calm swimming beaches. Kite surfers, body surfers, board surfers, all abound along the coast.At Victoria Bay it is rare to find a day without surfers in the water.

The lakes and rivers offer the opportunity for swimming, sailing, canoeing, pedal boats and more. The Touw River provides the opportunity to hire boats or canoes and see our village from a different vantage point.Activities abound.

For the adventurous there are opportunities as varied as paragliding to abseiling. There are short walks to long hikes in the forests, beaches or along towering cliff tops where you can see the sea crashing into the rocks far below.

As a favourite for tourists Wilderness has a range of restaurants from five star to quality pub fare. Accommodation is provided by hotels and over eighty B&B’s and Guest Houses! We trust that the site will help you to enjoy Paradise !
