What you'll do

We kick off by discussing the activities available.

Thrilling and exciting activities include coastal hikes, mountain hikes, exploring extraordinary caves, tubing down the river mouth of a secluded beach with majestic views of castles (yes, castles!), secret lagoon swimming spots, waterfall hikes, an African bush cultural experience and more!

No great experience is complete without the inclusion of great food. There is a variety of healthy breakfasts, picnic lunches or perhaps a romantic dinner surprise? - for you to choose from. Experiment with traditional South African cuisine at it's best, perhaps something a little more exotic from the East or a dish from your home favorites.
Whatever your tummy desires - will be made with only fresh and wholesome produce and locally sourced ingredients.
Vegan and vegetarians can look forward to an earthy offering of organic local fare.

A visit to the best cheese maker on the garden route can also arranged.

Merese was a great guide. This was truly an experience to remember. She showed us places and paths in Wilderness like only a local could. Thanks for a great day and some good conversation, Merese!
