Reached by a private road very much off the beaten track,( a car is essential) there are great walks around the reserve itself, and further afield, attractions include Victoria Bay (great surfing) - 5 mins drive; George (shopping and Botanic Gardens) - 15 mins drive; and the spectacular coastline of the garden route from Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna to Plettenberg Bay just a little further on.. Experience one of the best kept secrets of South Africa...' More

About the neighbourhood
AS well as beautiful walks in the nature reserve itself, there is so much to do and explore. Action sports such as paraglyding, abseiling, bungie jumping and diving. Golf, sailing, hiking, deep sea fishing, bowling and horseriding. Many beautiful beaches with an organised moonlight beach walk if desired. Tourist attractions include Knysna Elephant Park, The bird park and monkeyland just past Plettenburg Bay and Puzzle Park for the young at heart. Many art galleries and local crafts, fine food and restaurants and weekly farmers markets in George and Sedgefield. George has a Cinema with 4 screens and all the normal facilities found in a large town. cango Caves in Oudtdshoorn a must and how about riding an ostrich?
Getting around
While Spirit of The Ocean is in a private nature reserve and beautifully peaceful it is literally 10/15 mins away from the N2, Garden Route shopping mall, 15/20 mins from both George and Wilderness, 30 mins from Sedgefield and Mossell Bay with many beautiful beaches and golf courses in between. George itself now has a wonderful bus service but ones own transport is essential when getting around the Garden route in general.
