STOP 1: GEORGE
4 Nights | 3 Rounds of Golf

Nestled below the Outeniqua Mountains, at the heart of South Africa’s coastal paradise, Garden Route and halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, sits the sixth oldest town of South Africa. This pretty village is George which was originally a woodcutters post for the Dutch East India Company, and was later renamed after King George III during the British occupation of the Cape. Of historical interests in George is the Slave Tree – an ancient oak to which slaves were chained before they were auctioned to the highest bidder. A length of chain and padlock are still embedded in its trunk. George also has the largest collection of steam trains at the Railway Museum, while the Church of St Peter and St Paul is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in South Africa. George is the perfect base to explore several nearby attractions like game safari, wine estates, village markets and golf apart from a host of outdoor activities like paragliding, hanggliding, hiking, canoeing and sailing. Interestingly, George is the only district in the country that grows hops and supplies most of the country’s beer-brewing needs.
