Wilderness not only overlooks the sea, but also the placid lagoon (Touw River Estuary), the Serpentine, which meanders between the Touw River, Island Lake and Rondevlei. This is a favourite venue for waterskiing, canoeing, kloofing, horse riding, paragliding and abseiling and attracts enthusiasts from far and wide.


From the Wilderness Friday Night Market and the Outeniqua Farmers Market and Wild Oats Market on Saturdays to Milkwood Village with KwikSpar Grocery Store, Haircraft Hair and Nail Salon, Carolines Chocolate Haven, Le Shop Clothing & Jewellery, Vet Shop, Post Office, Laundromat, Top DVD, Pearl Shop, Pam Golding Properties, Marshan Franco Properties to Garden Route Mall.


At Wilderness you can enjoy long hikes along the beach, swim in the sea, take quiet walks along the boardwalk (wheelchair-friendly and part of the Pied Kingfisher Trail) that winds through the reeds of the Wilderness Lagoon. Do some bird, whale- and dolphin watching. Visit excellent viewpoints, take the scenic Seven Passes Road to Knysna and many more.
