On the banks of the Wilderness lagoon, two minutes walk from the beach, award-winning Moontide Guest Lodge has been heralded “the most romantic retreat in the Garden Route” as well as “best value Garden Route accommodation”. Eight individually styled cottages and rooms, each with private entrance and outdoor seating area. A birder’s paradise, shaded by 400-year-old milkwood trees overlooking the lagoon. Luxurious. Tranquil. A real escape.
the most romantic retreat in the Garden Route
Wilderness is the ideal base from which to explore the gems of the Garden Route and Klein Karoo. Not only is this little village by far the most tranquil of the Garden Route options, but you are within easy striking distance of all the sights: bustling Knysna lies within a 25-minute drive; Plettenberg Bay, playground of the rich and famous, a further 20 minutes, while Oudtshoorn and the jaw-dropping Swartberg Pass lies 60 minutes away. Every drive takes you past gorgeous lake and ocean vistas, with numerous winding passes through forested mountainsides. Your Wilderness home lies at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, its gardens lapped by the Touw river. The beach is a 2 minute stroll away; the Wilderness Village craft shops and a variety of restaurants lie within a 3-minute driving radius.
