Welcome at The Old Trading Post near Wilderness in the heart of The Garden Route where we offer quality bed and breakfast or self-catering accommodation at affordable prices.

Experience the old world charm of The Old Trading Post, amidst the peace, tranquility and natural beauty of the Wilderness Lakes District. The Old Trading Post is the ideal base to explore Wilderness and The Garden Route.

There is abundant birdlife in the garden and wetlands with continuous flocks of cormorants, ducks and egrets flying overhead. Over 200 bird species can be seen in the area. The forested hills, fynbos, reeds, lakes and rivers all blend into a beautiful natural environment in the heart of the Garden Route.

The Old Trading Post dates back about 100 years, to when there were no roads in the area and access to the lakes district was limited. It was here that Frans Roelofse built his house and opened a general dealer store to serve the local community of poor woodcutters, farmers and fishermen.

Today the shop serves as a cosy lounge for guests, whilst the house and outbuildings provide the accommodation.

Pets and children of all ages are welcome.
