Waterside Lodge is uniquely and conveniently located in The Wilderness on the Garden Route, Western Cape. Nestled between the lush, indigenous bush of the coastal mountains and the peaceful beauty of the Touws More River, Waterside Lodge welcomes you to our well-appointed, stylish en-suite accommodation. Our units each boast a private patio or balcony with river and/or sea views. The pristine Wilderness Beach and the village, with its tourist attractions and restaurants are within comfortable walking distance. At our front doorstep you will find the Touws River Boardwalk, an easy and scenic 500m stroll, providing close encounters with some of the many bird species abundant in the lush coastal undergrowth.
