What to do

This is mountain biking country – and it’s also a great destination for birding, walking and hiking, horse riding, motor bike touring, canoeing, scenic drives ... and just relaxing.

Attractions in the Garden Route include MTB trails; the Pezula, Simola, Fancourt, Oubaai, George, Mossel Bay, and Pinnacle Point championship golf courses; Blue Flag Beaches – and much, much more.

Where’s the camp

7 Passes Tented Camp is situated near Wilderness, at Woodville (with its famous big tree) - between the Touw and Diep River Passes on the Seven Passes Road.

This famous and scenic route was once the only road between the city of George in the West and the holiday town of Knysna in the East – but now it’s a peaceful, quiet country lane that just begs to be explored.

Please see our Find us page.


Each of our permanent, waterside safari tents has a small fridge,kettle,tea & Coffee, heater, fan and en-suite bathroom.

The boma is an African tradition. With its fire pit as the focus, it’s a meeting place that’s designed to foster conversation and friendship – because there’s nothing quite as relaxing as sitting round the flames and eating and drinking and telling stories as you watch the embers glow.

At the boma you will find a fully equipped communal kitchen with Oven, Stove Top, Microwave, crockery, cutlery and utensils. We also have a big undercover braai as well as the outside fire pit braai. 

We also have a honesty snack shop with cold drinks, snacks, wood, blitz, etc. 

You will find some board games in the boma as weel as the life jackets and paddles for the canoes. Please ensure that you wear a life-jacket if you want to go rowing on the dam. Bass fishing is also allowed in the dam.
