Nestled on a hilltop, overlooking the Indian Ocean, this hidden gem has been welcoming guests for over 20 years, and there really is something for everyone…

From log cabins for adventurous families looking for a digital detox, to contemporary cottages for friends or families who want to enjoy peace and seclusion with a few modern comforts

Couples can choose between a cosy studio apartment, a rustic hideaway cottage, or the very special Loft with its open-plan splendour and far reaching views over the ocean

There’s plenty of space to stretch your legs on the 9-hectare property, which is located 400m above Wilderness village. It’s a short walk or drive down the hill into the heart of the village, then on to the beach, the lagoon and beyond…

Wilderness Bushcamp is the perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route or just settle back on your private deck and watch the ocean roll in while you sip your morning coffee, relax with a sundowner or drink in the sea air…
