Boardwalk Lodge Wilderness
Since 1999, when the main Boardwalk Lodge Wilderness guesthouse and first self-catering chalets were opened to the public, the lodge has hosted visitors from all over the world. Situated within the boundaries of the Garden Route National Park and the Constantia Kloof Conservancy, Boardwalk Lodge offers a peaceful retreat from where to discover the treasures offered by Wilderness and the Garden Route.

Boardwalk Lodge Wilderness takes its name and inspiration from the famous lagoon-side boardwalk at the Wilderness section of the Garden Route National Park – an inspiration carried through to the resort’s unique construction. The various units are linked with wooden walkways.

The tranquillity of the location and top-class facilities provide the perfect setting to relax. Cool-off in the lodge’s crystal-blue swimming pool, spend an afternoon searching for the beautiful Knysna Lourie from the comfort of your private deck, or cosy-up in front of satellite television for an evening of intimate entertainment.
