Welcome to Garden Route National Park (Wilderness Section)
Formerly the Wilderness National Park, this section has been incorporated into the vast and scattered Garden Route National Park along with the Knysna Forests and Tsitsikamma. This section covers a unique system of lakes, rivers, wetlands and estuaries that are vital for the survival of many species.
There are several nature trails for all levels of fitness, taking in the lakes, the beach and the indigenous forest. The Kingfisher Trail is a 5km walk that traverses the region and includes a boardwalk across the intertidal zone of the Touws River. The lakes offer anglers, canoeists, windsurfers and sailors an ideal venue. Canoes can be hired at Eden Adventures in Wilderness.
