City of George

George is situated just inland from Victoria Bay on the Cape Garden Route. The heart of the Garden Route and capital of the Southern Cape, George is the ideal hub from which to explore the diverse scenery and natural wonders of its surrounding areas.

George is located in the Cape Wildflower Floral Kingdom next to the coast at the eastern end of the Western Cape Province and has a low rainfall Mediterranean type climate with activities to keep you busy all year round. We probably have the largest number of bed-nights accommodation available in this holiday paradise with its large conference facilities and many tourist attractions

George nestles at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains. Our airport connects you to and from all the main centers in South Africa and main roads and rail, link with the Klein Karoo hinterland. This is an ideal place to begin your holiday. No special health precautions are necessary.

Whilst George is mainly a holiday destination, many families have relocated to this most attractive town, which is located in one of the fastest growing areas in South Africa.

George, as the largest of the Garden Route towns, is also considered the industrial and business hub of the Southern Cape Region.  The main N2 highway linking Cape Town to Port Elizabeth with all the unique coastal towns in between form the unmistakable Garden Route with George as a vital central point, with its international airport and convenient centralized location.
