Canoe in Wildernis at the Ebb & Flow Camp Site
Wilderness is one of the Garden Route's well-kept secrets and a protected National Park area. The beautiful Ebb and Flow Camp Site stretches out along the river banks and has a beautiful board walk through the forest ending in deep rock pools where you can enjoy a picnic and the forest sounds. The other option is to rent a canoe at the entrance of the camp site and watch the bird life while gliding over the water, it is really an experience not to be missed if you are visiting the Garden Route.
Visit Wilderness beaches - Leentjiesklip
This beach lies directly below the N2 highway on your way to Wilderness. The beach stretches for 10km and ends at the river mouth, where the lagoon flows dark brown water into the cool blue ocean. For a light lunch or cold drink and a break from the hot sun, you can pop into Salinas Beach Restaurant, one of the only restaurants over-looking the beach on the Garden Route. There is a lovely shaded play area for the children and the views are just breath-taking. Salinas can be found on the Wilderness, next to the NSRI's offices, on the main beach next to Leentjiesklip.
