If only we could have stayed for more than 2 nights...the stay was so wonderful! Martina and Klaus were such great hosts (and Martina a great breakfast chef too!), we were made to feel very welcome even though we checked in quite late on the first day. Our room was absolute luxury and a real treat to come back to...

A very cost effective getaway which offers great value, unbelievable views and some of the best hosts I have ever experienced. Was an awesome experience - Mainly due to the views and the 2 managers. Its very rare for the place itself to look even better than the pictures on the add.

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and because it was out of season, the managers Mathilda and Husband was very kind enough to accommodate my two doggies. Our whole holiday was an absolute disaster, from sick doggies to being robbed at an ATM in George. The only redeeming thing about the entire trip was this beautiful guest house and the...

Found on the world-renowned Garden Route, Wilderness is also known as the Eden of the southern coast of South Africa. The Lodge is an exclusive five star guesthouse nestled on the hillside overlooking the spectacular Island Lake and the mountains beyond. Nature and architecture blend seamlessly into a setting that surely must be among the most beautiful in the world. Guests are offered internationally competitive exclusivity in both the accommodation and the adjoining Wellness Spa.
