Wilderness Introduction

Wilderness is a town that's definitely worth a visit if you're looking to go on a romantic holiday in the Garden Route. This seaside resort has all the ingredients required for a vacation with a loved one. Beautiful beaches, dramatic mountain views, exquisite nature reserves, fantastic opportunities for outdoor adventures – Wilderness has it all. The town is peaceful enough to enjoy some quiet time and exciting enough to keep boredom away. And like icing on cake, the town is a popular spot for watching whales and dolphins too.

Hotels in Wilderness

Because Wilderness is an upscale resort town, the array of accommodation on offer here is made up of posh guesthouses, holiday villas and boutique hotels. These options offer modern facilities and generous services, including direct beach access, swimming pools, full-service spas and saunas and topnotch fitness centres, as well as fully equipped conference rooms and buffet breakfast. Many also have their own restaurants and bars. Holiday homes are fully furnished and come with kitchens and living rooms. Many of these self-catering properties also feature patios or terraces where guests can enjoy the dramatic views around Wilderness. A handful of the lodging options in Wilderness also provide family-friendly services such as in-room childcare.

Where to stay

Many of the holiday homes and hotels in Wilderness are on Wilderness Beach. Despite its popularity, Wilderness Beach remains an unspoiled stretch of white sand on the bank of Touwsrivier Lagoon. It's a great spot for swimming and romantic strolls. The street of Die Duin on the opposite bank of the lagoon is lined with holiday homes facing the ocean. Just like with Wilderness Beach, the sea views are marvellous and the beaches fantastic. If you're planning a spa holiday, the spa hotels are on the banks of picturesque Island Lake, a serene backdrop for a relaxing vacation.

Things to see

The Map-of-Africa Viewpoint is a famous attraction in Wilderness Heights, offering visitors magnificent views of the Kaaimans River Valley below. The Viewpoint takes its name from the course of the Kaaimans River, which is shaped like the African continent. It's also a popular launching spot among paragliders. The Garden Route National Park is the combination of 3 formerly individual national parks, namely Wilderness National Park, the Knysna Lakes National Park and the Tsitsikamma National Park. Garden Route NP represents the beautiful but delicate ecosystem of the Southern Cape region and seeks to protect it. The park attracts picnickers, birdwatchers, wildlife observers, cyclists and long-distance hikers. Victoria Bay lies just outside the western boundary of Wilderness but is considered a Wilderness attraction. Victoria Bay provides a natural platform for watching whales and dolphins off the coast.
