Wilderness

Wilderness, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the world, is unique in the sense that it is a conservation area around a place where people actually live. 

When it was proclaimed as the first National Lake Area in 1983, it heralded an exciting innovation in South Africa's conservation strategy: it was the first attempt to bring human culture and its immediate environment into a state of harmony, to reconcile utilization and conservation, and in so doing, to benefit both an ecologically sensitive area and civilization itself.

It is a place where one can escape the pressures of modern life and return to basics in a natural environment. There are so many sights to see and  so many things to do that boredom is something vary rare in Wilderness.
