George, the City for all reasons
Nestling at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains, George finds itself at the centre of natures “Garden Route” in the Cape Wildflower Floral Kingdom. Situated approximately 430 kilometres from the Mother City of Cape Town,
George is widely regarded as the hub of the Southern Cape Region. It is therefore the ideal base from which to explore the Southern Cape and Little Karoo. George is highly accessible. A good road network and the George airport link the Southern Cape and Little Karoo hinterland to the major centres of South Africa.
It is the business hub of the region and offers a variety of conference facilities, restaurants and tourist attractions and activities.
15 kilometres east of George on the N2 between the Kaaimans River and the Goukamma Nature Reserve, you will discover Wilderness. Nestling between the wooded foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains and the warm Indian Ocean in a region renown for its incomparable natural beauty, vast stretches of beaches and tranquility. It is a haven for nature lovers and adventurers alike. Most people chance upon Wilderness for the first time after sweeping through the Kaaimans River gorge and rounding Dolphin Point. Below stretches a seemingly endless beach; in the distance are hints of inland lakes, rare in South Africa; to the left wooded hills tumble down to the village and further inland are faraway glimpses of the Outeniqua Mountains.
Climate George’s mild Mediterranean type climate makes it possible to participate in outdoor activities throughout the year. Summer temperatures average 26 degrees C and winter temperatures average 14 degrees C in the daytime.
