About Wilderness National Park

Wilderness National Park

Discover untamed ecosystems in a setting of unsurpassed splendor, The Wilderness National Park is tucked away in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains at the center of South Africa's renowned Garden Route.

The park is made up of intertwining lakes, estuaries and river systems that flow out onto the windswept east coast beaches. It offers a range of exciting outdoor activities as well as restful accommodation in the midst of truly breathtaking scenery.

Set against a backdrop of a thriving forest and noble mountains, encompassing a network of lakes, rivers, lagoons, fynbos, sandy beaches and the ocean.

With the various outdoor activities available here, the area is abuzz with adventure and capable of enthralling visitors for hours. Explore the natural splendour of Wilderness Park by bike or canoe, or go abseiling, kloofing, paragliding, fishing and hiking. Dolphins and whales can be spotted from high above the coastline at Dolphin Point, or visitors can spend time in the bird hide looking for the wading Caspian Tern, or Kelp Gull. From the famous map of Africa viewpoint, the predatory Cuckoo Hawk, Crowned Eagle, Sparrowhawk and African Goshawk can be seen spiralling in the thermals above the Kaaimans River Valley.

The beautiful rest camps are made up of rows of bright and tidy cottages and campsites, which are nestled under a lush canopy of trees close to the water’s edge. Lazy days spent floating over one of the five lakes, long walks down the 30km stretch of protected coastline and scenic drives around the beautiful surroundings of the Garden Route all await you at the Wilderness National Park, one of SANParks’ most inspiring offerings.
