When it comes to exploring the Garden Route of South Africa, it is George that serves the traveler best. The city serves as the main gateway to the route and is located halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, nestled by the Outeniqua Mountains to the north and the Indian Ocean to the south. George Airport
serves the city and is the gateway to many nearby destinations. George can also be reached by car for those who want a more scenic route in.
There is much to do in terms of adventuring in nature with the mountains and beach being within easy reach. Hike through the forest of Outeniqua, or head to George Peak or Cradock Peak for amazing views. Outside the mountains and game reserves, beautiful walks can be had at the Saasveld Campus of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. For sea, sand, and sun, there is Herolds Bay
and Victoria Bay as well as several other options. If just looking to chill out in the city, the Outeniqua Transport Museum
can be checked out.
The bulk of George’s accommodation can be found within the city. There are also options to stay near the airport as well as the area of Herolds Bay. Find the most suitable accommodation for you by clicking on our interactive map and exploring George for hotels and must-see destinations.
