Wilderness Area

Made famous by local author Daleen Matthee’s books about the history of this lush area and its people, the forests, lakes and coast between Wilderness and Plettenberg Bay are steeped in mystery, local lore and an environmental history that changed from being one of the most ravaged areas in the country to a tightly conserved region. In this area, a butterfly stopped an entire development from happening… and three mysterious elephants are rumored to have chased hunters out of their forest!
