Wilderness

Wilderness lies 5km east of George, between the Kaaiman River and the Goukamma Nature Reserve in the Garden Route. It is renowned for its vast stretches of beach, its tranquillity and the absence of windswept headlands and wild, stormy seas. Wilderness overlooks not only the sea, but also the placid lagoon, the Serpentine, which meanders between the Tow River, Inland Lake and Rondevlei. This is a favourite water skiing venue, drawing enthusiasts from far and wide. Wilderness has a 2 500 ha national park with five rivers and five lakes, two estuaries and 18km of Southern Cape coastline. The rare and sensitive eco-system is home to a wealth of water birds, as well as the elusive Knysna Loerie that can be heard, and sometimes seen, in the forest. Mammals include bushbuck, common duiker, Cape Grysbok, the golden mole and the Cape clawless otter.
