Wilderness - worth going?

We r in Ct for 3 weeks then Wine lands for 1 week and we were planning on taking the Baz bus to wilderness.

Is it worth 6.5 hours there and 6.5 hours back for 3 nights in Wilderness? ?

Any input appreciated

Depends what you want. Beautiful beach but not much else as far as I’m aware. Wouldn’t drive 6.5 hours myself.

Look up the Sanparks website for their camps there

www. Sanparks.org . then look under Garden route National Park and then Wilderness Very reasonable accommodation. Great views and super walks . stay at the Ebb and flow rest camp and you have a great choice of accommodations . the Village is a short walk away along a wooden walkway and there are plenty of places to eat plus a little supermarket . You can self cater if you wish to No tour guide is necessary Just ask at reception for a map . Plenty to do Bird watching Hiking canoeing . and of course the fantastic beach where the water is warm all the year .

Of course its worth it and I am busy planning a few days there later this year

Wilderness is a lovely place to stay with a beautiful beach, numerous hiking trails in the area, and there are some adventure sport operators who will offer activities like kayaking, kloofing or abseiling in the area.

Wilderness is also a great place to use as a base camp if you want to explore a bit more by taking day trips to places like Oudtshoorn or Knysna.
