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.
Get in touch with nature at Wilderness Beach and Cango Caves. Museum-lovers will get to explore Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex and Janine Iron and Washing Museum. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Outeniqua Transport Museum, take some stellar pictures from Dolphin Point Lookout, explore the galleries of Cape Palette Art Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Montagu Pass Old Toll House.
