Wilderness is the ideal base from which to explore the gems of the Garden Route and Klein Karoo. Not only is this little village by far the most tranquil of the Garden Route options, but you are within easy striking distance of all the sights: bustling Knysna lies within a 25-minute drive; Plettenberg Bay, playground of the rich and famous, a further 20 minutes, while Oudtshoorn and the jaw-dropping Swartberg Pass lies 60 minutes away. Every drive takes you past gorgeous lake and ocean vistas, with numerous winding passes through forested mountainsides. Your Wilderness home lies at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, its gardens lapped by the Touw river. The beach is a 2 minute stroll away; the Wilderness Village craft shops and a variety of restaurants lie within a 3-minute driving radius.
If travelling from Cape Town/George Having descended from the Kaaimans River Pass, you will pass the turn-off to the Village and cross over the lagoon. Immediately after you have crossed the lagoon, look for the Moontide sign and take the first turning left (over the disused railway line) into Southside Road. Moontide is located at the end of the lane. If traveling from PE/Knysna Look out for the sign on the right-hand side, soon after you have passed the turn off to Pirate’s Creek.
