George in the Western Cape has a rich historical legacy, evident in many of the town’s attractions. Its prime location between the Outeniqua Mountains and Indian Ocean, surrounded by forests and lakes, gives rise to a compelling mix of outdoor pursuits, not to mention its collection of world-class golf courses.
Given its location surrounded by mountains, forests and lakes, it's not surprising that outdoor leisure pursuits rank highly among George's key attractions . Nature walks, birdwatching, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and horse riding are all within a stone's throw of the town, capitalising on the area's natural beauty.
George is also renowned as the Western Cape's golf capital, with numerous world-class courses – tee off at The Links, Montagu or Outeniqua courses (all Gary Player-designed) at Fancourt; the signature Sally Little course at Kingswood Golf Estate; or the Ernie Els-designed Oubaai Golf Club course for your most picturesque game yet.
The area around George is well-suited to self-drive journeys, especially the scenic Seven Passes route – seven mountain passes including the beautiful Montagu Pass.
