On a vacation in Wilderness, a coastal resort town on the Garden Route, you'll have easy access to a multitude of nature trails and activities set among the rivers, beaches, and forests of Wilderness National Park and Goukama Nature Reserve.
Outeniqua Transport Museum and Pharoah Art Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Wilderness National Park and Wilderness Beach. Explore Wilderness' surroundings by going to Mossel Bay (Cape St Blaize Lighthouse & St. Blaize Trail). Next up on the itinerary: scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, contemplate the long history of Montagu Pass Old Toll House, pause for some serene contemplation at St Mark's Cathedral, and relax in the rural setting at Redberry Farm.

Ostrich Capital of the World

Nestled in the arid valley of Little Karoo, the town of Oudtshoorn remains the hub of everything ostrich-related, housing the world's largest population of the flightless birds.

There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Meerkat Magic, stop by Lugro Ostrich Leather Products, and explore the fascinating underground world of Cango Caves.
