Stand in awe of ancient Outeniqua forests, old big yellowwood trees, and drink from crystal clear water from mountain springs in the Garden Route National Park. Wander through dunes covered with fynbos, with lakes on the one side and the vast Indian Ocean on the other. Get below the water off Gerickes Point at Sedgefield to discover the abundant sea life. Listen for the call of the African fish eagle, spot the iconic Knysna Turaco, the Greater and Lesser Flamingoes and the Goliath Heron or watch an abundance of water birds as they glide by from hides on the Wilderness Lakes.
