About ERA George
This bustling regional centre is at the heart of the Garden Route. Although an inland town, George's setting between the Outeniqua mountains and the sea inspired the author Anthony Trollop to describe it as "the prettiest village on the face of the earth". The dense forests that once surrounded the town are mostly gone but George remains a floral kingdom with scarlet lilies, proteas, ericas and watsonias covering the mountain slopes. A fun way to see the surrounding countryside is to ride the Outeniqua Choo-choo to Knysna. The puffing of this old steam engine along the George coast quickly transports its passengers to a bygone era.
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 areas many variant and diverse scenic wonders.
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 a major accommodation centre with a vast array of facilities on offer to suite every taste and pocket.
