Take a trip along the Garden Route and enjoy discovering this spectacular region with a fellow traveller.
The region, which stretches 300 kilometres from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to Storm’s River in the Eastern Cape, boasts a diverse array of natural wonders. Scattered along the coastline are pristine beaches, lakes and lagoons, ancient forests, and rolling hills leading up to the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges.
Make a pit stop at Ilita Lodge. Located between Mossel Bay and George, the lodge is the perfect base from where you can explore, and is a comfortable place to rest your head after a day filled with exciting adventures.
If you enjoy fishing, water sports and being near the ocean, you’ve come to the right place. The lodge lies in a small fishing area known as the Great Brak River where there are a plethora of water-based recreational activities. At the right time of year, visitors might be able to view whales when they grace our shorelines to breach and calve.
George, one of the area’s largest towns, is a short drive away and has plenty of exciting attractions to offer travellers, including walks, hikes, and plenty of other outdoor adventures. Visit the ‘green lung', the Garden Route Botanical Gardens, if you’re a budding horticulturalists or enjoy being in nature.
