Palms – Wilderness is well situated to accommodate guests visiting the Garden Route. We are based within the village, a mere 5 minute walk from the beautiful unspoiled beaches of Wilderness.
For a closer look at the beauty of Wilderness and what the surrounds have to offer, don your hiking boots and head off with a well packed picnic and enjoy a day canoeing up the Touw River, hike to the waterfall or hike one of the several hikes through breathtaking indigenous forests within the 2500ha Wilderness National Park. A birders paradise.
Take a day drive to Knysna & Plettenberg Bay. Hike the Robberg Reserve along the cliffs of the Robberg Mountain (not for the faint-hearted though!!) or visit Monkey Land, Elephant Sanctuary or Birds of Eden.
Do a game drive at Botlierskop – viewing wild life from an open land rover with a qualified guide.
Stop off at “the Big Tree” in the Millwood Forest, take the ferry to Featherbed reserve, do some dolphin/whale watching, shark diving or deep sea fishing.
Play golf at any of the world renowned golf courses within driving distance from the Palms. George Country Club, Fancourt, Oubaai, Knysna Golf Club, Pezula Championship Course, Plettenberg Bay Country Club or Simola Country Club.
For the more adventurous you can do some paragliding or bungee jumping!
The real bonus of staying at the Palms – Wilderness is that we are in close proximity to the most spectacular mountain ranges, scenery and off the beaten track areas. You can even rent a BMW motorcycle and explore our mountain passes and forests.
