Offering the only botanical garden on the Garden Route, this quiet city is world-renowned for its golf courses.
George began as a humble timber-supply-base by the Dutch East India Company in 1776, though the town proper wasn’t officially established until 1811. Today, it’s the commercial hub of the famed Garden Route, though still maintains its small-town atmosphere thanks to the wide streets and traditional white buildings. George’s central landmark is known as the ‘Slave Tree’ - an ancient English Oak so named for chain embedded in its trunk, which has been named a national monument. George is also home to the only botanical gardens on the Garden Route, which preserves the diverse but threatened flora of the Cape Floristic Region - a UNESCO-listed biome. For many visitors however, the main attraction is the range of championship golf courses.
