The National Park in Wilderness, South Africa is a charming world of lakes, rivers, fens, estuaries and beaches which gently unfolds against a backdrop of lush forest and lofty mountains. Nature trails wind through densely wooded forest and along tranquil rivers, affording you the opportunity to encounter the brilliantly coloured Knysna lourie, or one of the five kingfisher species that thrive here.

The series of lakes connected by the Touw River (Eilandvlei, Langvlei and Rondevlei) host a variety of aquatic species and is an internationally proclaimed Ramsar site. During the spring, the lakes are surrounded by a carpet of flowers which further enhance the verdant beauty of this wetland national park.
