|The Garden Route has a Mediterranean
Maritime climate, with moderately hot summers, and mild to chilly winters.
It is one of the richest rainfall areas, most of which occurs in the
winter months, brought by the humid sea-winds from the Indian ocean. Ant
time of the year is good for visiting the area, depending if you enjoy a
peaceful retreat during the winter months, or a bustling holiday resort
during the summer.
George is the sixth oldest town in South Africa, situated in the beautiful Western Cape Province and is the Capital of the Southern Cape. The town is very centrally situated: halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and centre of the Garden Route - ideal from where to explore the area's many variant and diverse scenic wonders. Situated on a 10 kilometer plateau between the majestic Outeniqua Mountain to the north and the Indian ocean to the South.
|George also has an extremely sophisticated infrastructure with banks, conference facilities, businesses, major shopping chains, transport and sporting facilities, yet retaining its small town and country atmosphere of peace and tranquility. The town is also a major accommodation centre with a vast array of facilities on offer to suite every taste and pocket.|
|George has many
historical landmarks to be visited. Like The Slave
Tree, an ancient English Oak planted by Landdrost van Kervel. Known as the
Slave Tree because of the very large chain and lock embedded in the trunk,
it has been declared a national monument. And the King Edward VII Library
building is said to be the best example of Edwardian architecture in
George. The First Class School for girls was started
by Miss Christina Petronella van Niekerk, a "New Age" young lady
with visions for the future which were very different to those ideas held
by the conservative population of George.
George has much to offer the visitor with its city-like infrastructure but not forgetting its small town roots.
George is situated close to various airports which makes it easily accessible.
