Explore your surroundings:
The small town of Wilderness is known as the Eden of the Southern coast of South Africa.
Make your way down to the Touw River Estuary and enjoy a swim, romantic canoe trip or picnic, or admire the beautiful birds of the Garden Route.
If you and your partner want to test your limits and get your hearts racing, there is an array of exciting sports and activities available in the Wilderness area. These range from horse riding, hiking and mountain biking, to abseiling, bungee jumping and kayaking.
Kaaimans Gorge is one of the popular abseiling attractions near the Lodge on the Lake. It boasts two 45m drops alongside a stunning waterfall. Formal cycling and canoeing tours are on offer too.
Sliding over the forests and valleys of the Garden Route at tree canopy height is an exhilarating way of appreciating the verdant beauty of the Western Cape.
A visit to the Wilderness National Park is a must. The park is a little different from the usual wildlife reserves found throughout South Africa. Rather than predator and prey, it showcases the magnificent vegetation and ecological diversity of the Garden Route. See a treasure trove of fynbos (endemic to South Africa), as well as a number of natural features, including forests, lakes, rivers, estuaries and almost 30 kilometres of pristine shoreline.
Birdlife is abundant, and visitors are urged to keep an eye and ear out for the colourful Knysna Turaco (Loerie).
It is no surprise that so many of the local attractions are dedicated to the natural abundance of Wilderness. This makes the Lodge on the Lake the perfect retreat for those who love the landscapes of the Western Cape, as well as those simply looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, living without sacrificing fun and adventure.
After a day of fun activities, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the top-class restaurants in the area, and, if you want, the lodge reception will happily make reservations for you.
