Lovely short walk into the small village where there are good places to eat. It's between knysna and George so visiting both these places is easy by car. The garden route certainly has lots to do and... More

Gerald and JD run a first class bed and breakfast with great attention to all detail and the most delectable breakfasts. If wishing to stay overnight at Wilderness whilst on the Garden Route, look no further than Wilderness Manor.

We have just returned from a three week trip in South Africa, and without a doubt Wilderness Manor was our favourite. This is due to several factors, mainly JD and Gerald being truly amazing hosts, the beautiful setting, and charming house (and two lovely canine friends!!) We have never received so warm a welcome, with a yummy drink and lots... More
