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 sought-after holiday 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 a most sought-after destination in South Africa.

Idyllically situated between mountains and beaches, with a chain of tranquil lakes locked-in between, Wilderness is a unique holiday destination. Together with its rivers and lakes, surrounding lush forests and 18 kilometres of coastline, Wilderness forms part of the Garden Route National Park.

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.

Wilderness Manor is luxuriously decorated in an African colonial style with fine oriental rugs, heirlooms, antiques, art and collectables which contribute to a refined and stylish ambience. Relax in the spacious Guest Lounge or Reading Lounge with superb views from the balconies overlooking the lagoon.

Retire to the serenity of four stylish en-suite bedrooms: three luxury and spacious Lagoon Facing Rooms on the second floor with breathtaking views of the lagoon and one Garden Room on the ground floor with a private garden and patio.

Each bedroom at Wilderness Manor offers:
• Quiet nights with birdsong in the mornings
