WILDERNESS MANOR

GUEST HOUSE / BED & BREAKFAST IN WILDERNESS, GARDEN ROUTE, WESTERN CAPE


ABOUT THE AREA

Almost halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on the internationally renowned Garden Route and nestled between mountains and golden beaches, you will find one of South Africa's most enchanting coastal destinations, the seaside village of Wilderness. Wilderness is only 25 kilometres from the well-served George Airport, gateway to the Garden Route. With its spellbinding beauty and endless beaches, it is one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in South Africa.

Idyllically situated between mountains and beaches, with a chain of tranquil lakes locked-in between, Wilderness' surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful. Together with its rivers and lakes, surrounding lush forests and 18 kilometres of coastline, Wilderness forms part of the Garden Route National Park.

THE GUEST HOUSE

Wilderness Manor is an elegant and refined guest house overlooking the Wilderness Lagoon, in the scenic village of Wilderness. Step out of the front door and cross the road onto the boardwalk for an easy and safe stroll to golden beaches, restaurants and village shops.

Owners Gerald and JD provide upmarket, luxury accommodation and personal, but discreet service in a refined environment. Guests find Wilderness Manor a tranquil base from which to explore the idyllic surroundings of the lakes area and Garden Route towns like Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay, as well as Oudtshoorn in the Klein Karoo. A three or four night stay is ideal to explore the Garden Route.

ACCOMMODATION
