Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
George is the largest town of the Garden Route. It is locate in the Western Cape just south of Oudtshoorn. The setting of town is pretty with the magnificent Outeniqua Mountain range dominating the city, and rivers , rich farmlands, forests and wild flowers surrounding it on all sides. Nature, outdoor and scenery is what you come here for.

Forestry is the backbone of the area's economy and, in addition to exotic species, large tracts of indigenous forest have been preserved. Hops grown in the countryside around George and the well-watered valleys in the Outeniqua Mountains supply about half of South Africa's needs. It is possible to make increible hikes and treks in the mountains. And if you are tired of walking just go to the beach - some of the nicest beaches with nice warm water are just a few km away.
