About Us

"Our aim is to provide luxury accommodation in Wilderness in a relaxed setting that reflects the beauty of the Garden Route."

Since 1999, when the main Boardwalk Lodge Self-Catering chalets were opened to the public, the lodge has hosted visitors from all over the world. Situated within the boundaries of the Garden Route National Park and the Constantia Kloof Conservancy, Boardwalk Lodge offers a peaceful retreat from where to discover the treasures offered by Wilderness and the Garden Route.

Boardwalk Lodge takes its name and inspiration from the famous lagoon-side boardwalk at the Wilderness section of the Garden Route National Park – an inspiration carried through to the resort’s unique construction. The various units are linked with wooden walkways called Boardwalks.

The tranquility of the location provides the perfect setting to relax. Spend a lazy day staring and listening to the ocean for endless hours or an afternoon searching for the beautiful Knysna Loerie from the comfort of your private deck, or cozy-up in front of a fireplace for a romantic evening.
