Next stop was Wilderness… in the rain. We enjoyed a great Thai meal and a wander on the deserted beach alongside a trip to the view point 'Map of Africa' but moved on quicker than expected to our next stop
... accepts no responsibility for any personal injury to the client, even as a result of negligence or gross negligence on the part of the company". Now I'm no lawyer (yet) but it seems to be that the entire point of being able to sue people is to stop them being negligent. I'm not sure how this would stand up in a South African court, but eh, what's the worst that could happen when you hurl yourself off a bridge for a 216m drop?
The entire process ...

Today we drove up to Oudtshoorn to visit a ranch where a number of animals from Africa and abroad are living and working as ambassadors for their species. It's a unique place as it provides the opportunity to interact with some of these guys and we had to take advantage.
Both Indira and I got to hang out with a 10 month ...

The only thing that surprised me was how much my head hurt when bouncing. The blood rushes to your head so much so that it feels like it is going to explode. Most jumpers came back with blood shot eyes. Exploding heads or not, it was an experience I'll never forget.

... Very skittish little guys, but we trained them to eat from our hands, and got to know 2 of them quite well (one of them had an extreme beak overbite, which Maya insisted was the boy since he looked so goofy). We had some good hikes there along the river along a long wooden walkway. It was beautiful, and we encountered a LOT of strange caterpillars (again, see the pics). Other than that, it was just a good place to relax and meet ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cinnamon Boutique Guest House Wilderness
went here for 2 nights,stayed 3,and will stay longer next time! you have to experience this beautiful place to appreciate it. the decor is magnificent,the bed rooms best i have ever seen,and are a great tribute to co owners desmond &johan who went out of there way to make our stay so memorable. the breakfasts were fantastic,and the setting with the beautiful view of the forest and sound of the birds &running water fantastic.not to be missed,good value to,
Get off the N2 here
Not immediately appetising due to the close proximity of the N2 (and the roadworks when we were there). But once inside the ambiance changes. It's beautifully furnished and equipped and managed with unfussy charm and efficiency.
An average choice of restaurants (in our view the italian is best) but Cinnamon are busy opening their own restaurant.
A perfect situation for a break in the busy schedule of car travel along the garden route. We decided to take long walks along a magnificent beach and also through the Wilderness walking trails.
Understated but in our view a far better place to stay than Plettenberg
An absolute gem!
Cinnamon Boutique is an absolute gem and a total surprise. Last year we passed through Wilderness on the N2 highway wihout stopping, but this year we spend 2 nights in Cinnamon and enjoyed absolute luxury. Demond and Johan are perfect hosts, always helpful and their advice on where to go, what to see, where to eat proved to be excellent.
The quality of everything in Cinnamon, from the furniture, the bedding, the pool, breakfast etc cannot be faulted.
If you are driving along the N2, do not pass Wilderness by without stopping, stay at Cinnamon Boutique guest house and enjoy some of the best hospitality we found anywhere in South Africa.
Nach herrlichen Tagen ind er Wildnis (Sabi Sand) kamen wir einigermaßen frustriert nach Wilderness - waren wir doch inzwischen totale Einsamkeit und unendliche Weite gewohnt. Doch schon der Empfang im Cinnamon Boutige Hotel war herzlich und wir waren mehr als angenehm von der Großzügigkeit und Eleganz des Hauses überrascht. Auch die Zimmer und das Bad sind richtig groß und sehr gut ausgestattet.
We stayed at the Cinnamon Boutique by default...our original hotel had double booked us and moved us to Cinnamon as compensation. And what a treat! We could not have asked for a better place to stay- 5* luxury it certainly is.
One of the great 'finds' of our journey through southern South Africa. Spacious, immaculate, thoughtfully and tastefully designed and positioned adjacent to wonderful beaches and some good restaurants. An excellent breakfast is taken on the terrace by the pool or in the dining room. Sub tropical gardens offer shade and relaxation. The bedrooms and bathrooms are five star plus standard. The word 'Boutique' in the name does Cinnamon no favours. It should be 'Palace'. Johan, who designed Cinnamon, and Desmond are to be congratulated and thanked for providing my wife and I with such delightful hospitality.
Cinnamon Boutique Guest House, Wilderness, South Africa
What a find!
What a find, Cinnamon Boutique Guesthouse on the Garden Route South Africa. Was suprised by the spacious newly decorated bedroom and equally large bathroom. Our room had 2 balconies with lovely views over the forest. The house itself is quiet and relaxing and even when full didn't feel overcrowded. Had a great time relaxing at the pool and the beach and restuarants were only a few minutes away. The service and staff were excellent and the hosts, Des and Johan, were very helpful regarding where to go and what to do. One of the best parts of the country - will definitely visit again.
All we can say is WOW. What a 5 star experience.
I do not write reviews that often (must try harder!) and have found the level of accomodation in South Africa to be high. However I have just finished a week's round trip to the Garden Route from Capetown and came across a place that is special. Located one minute from the awesome beach, it sits on an elevated position amongst forest with the sound of exotic birds. I arrived at night and the place is visually stunning from the outside entering across a platform passing the nice pool and jacuzzi. But its the spaciousness of the public rooms and particularly the bedrooms (mine was about 50 square metres) thats makes the place unusual. Immaculately decorated, faultless cleanliness and everything looks brand new. I have an enormous balcony on which to soak up the nature Desmond and Johan are delightful hosts and made me feel very welcome indeed- so thanks again to them. There is a very well stocked honesty bar. Breakfast included an extensive list of hot items which came freshly prepared . Faulltless and amazing value for money in my opinion..
