George is very centrally situated halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and the centre of the Garden Route - ideal from where to explore the areas as well as the many diverse scenic wonders. George is the de facto capital of the Garden Route and undoubtedly its largest urban centre and only city. It's not on the coast, so it is already at a disadvantage when compared to Plett or Knysna, but it has found its little niche and it fills it extremely well.
George, Western Cape, South Africa
George has golf courses - in a big way. The George Golf Club, which has consistently been in the list of top 10 golf courses in South Africa for many years is to be found here. This, as well as the magnificent, but relatively new Fancourt Estate.
Golf aside, George has an attractive cathedral and a museum. The museum houses a splendid collection of fairy paintings that draws inspiration from the surrounding scenery.
But really, it's all about position. The closest beach is Victoria Bay, which is an unbelievably beautiful little beach that is nestled up against the mountain and is one of South Africa's prime whale watching locations. Visitors can fish, bathe or sun worship at this stunning beach.
George is also a major accommodation centre with a vast array of facilities on offer to suit every taste and pocket. There are also many historical landmarks to be visited at George.
George also has the main airport of the Garden Route, with regular schedules to Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The airport connects visitors to and from all the main centers in South Africa and main roads and rail, link with the Klein Karoo hinterland.
