Treetops Cottage at Moontide

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

On the banks of the tranquil Touw River, a few minutes stroll from Wilderness beach, this is great base from which to explore the surrounding Garden Route National Park, or just spend a few days soaking up the sun and birdwatching from the riverside decks. 

Check-in: 14h:00 | Check-out: 10h00

No minimum stay required


Moontide Riverside Lodge is shaded by 400-year-old milkwood trees, and offers direct access to the river – great for swimming, canoeing (there are several canoes available) and birdwatching. Rates include a full South African breakfast: weather permitting, this is served on the deck overlooking the river – one of the loveliest locations on the Garden Route. Management is on hand for advice on what to do, and assist with activity or restaurant bookings. Should you prefer to dine in for dinner, several local restaurants offer deliveries, and Stone Cottage is equipped for self catering.


This delightful cottage for 2 enjoys an excellent view of the Touw River and surrounds. Ideal for honeymoon couples. A staircase winding up through the garden to a stilted cottage amongst the trees (not ideal for travellers with huge suitcases!). Queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom with bathtub and a private outdoor shower.


Doors open onto a private sun-filled balcony amongst the trees furnished with comfortable chairs and loungers to enjoy the wonderful views. Amenities include minibar, tea-and-coffee making facilities, TV. 


Wilderness is a short distance east from the city of George, through the Kaaiman's River Pass. It is known for its long white sand beach, and is surrounded by the Garden Route National Park, an intricate tapestry of habitats: rivers, lakes, forests, fynbos, estuaries and beaches.

Easy and scenic striking distance from Knysna (40 minutes) and Mossel Bay (45 minutes); and an hour from Oudtshoorn or Plettenberg Bay.


Rates include a full South African breakfast.

Laundry service is available.

A romantic cottage on stilts shaded by indigenous forest, with private sun deck and outdoor shower that overlook the river which is protected and part of the National Park. The beach a mere four-minute stroll away; so much to do and see, but sometimes all you need is a day on the deck.

Wilderness beach is beautiful and stretches for many kilometers – ideal for walking but riptides here can be strong; the river however is warm, shallow and clean.
