Bridgewater is an ideal base for a visit to Knysna - for business or pleasure. Comfortable rooms are either lagoon-facing or lead off a quiet garden courtyard behind the main building. Your hosts have extensive first-hand knowledge of the area to help you plan a very worthwhile tour of the Garden Route. Beautiful beaches , indigenous forests , spectacular Pezula and Simola golf courses , wonderful day walks , and close encounters with most of Africa's Big Five all lie within a 30 minute drive . The Wilderness , Nature's Valley , the Tsitsikamma National Park , and Oudtshoorn with the Cango Caves are an easy day trip .
