St. Francis Bay boasts a beautifully laid-out 18- hole Golf Course, where you are most welcome. However, remember to consider the family as well; take them to Shamwari Game Reserve, Kariega Game Reserve, Baviaanskloof Mega-Reserve, Kwandwe Game Reserve, Addo National Elephant Park, or game viewing at Schotia Safaris. All lovely attractions within 1- 1 & 1/2 hours drive from St Francis Bay.

Hiking along the Sand River is recommended at any time off the year. If you are lucky, you may see the beautiful Crystal Pools.

The water in the Sand River flows underground, over the hard rocky substrate that underlines the dunes. After heavy rains, the water table rises to form Crystal Pools. Enjoy boat cruises around the Bay. You'll discover abundant bird and marine life - including penguins, whales and dolphins. Boats may not venture closer than 300m to any whale. For more information on whales off this spectacular coastline see www.whaleroute.com

Explore the upper reaches of the Kromme River on a comfortable motor launch. Stop over at Stony Boma River Camp for a picnic or barbecue. After lunch, relax or go for a hike, canoeing, fishing or birding on the river.

A photographer in the 60's - Bruce Brown, searched the world for the Perfect Wave. He found it at St Francis Bay, and named it 'Bruce's Beauties' - St Francis Bay is one of the world's great surf spots - and you need not be a surfer to enjoy this graceful sport. Delight in watching the followers "search" for the perfect wave!

Take an hour-long trip and sip a soothing drink or two as you experience South Africa's own 'Little Venice' aboard a comfortable cruiser. Picturesque white-walled thatched homes reflect in the tranquil waters of the meandering canals whilst the ever-present songs of resident bird life serenade you.

Enjoy the wildlife at Seaview Game & lion Park with 40 species of African wildlife to view, including Lions, jackals, lynx, crocodiles , giraffe, zebra, baboons, monkeys, wildebeest, and many others.

For the thrill-seekers, experience the adrenalin of a 216m bungee jump, the highest Bungee Jump in the world.

If you get enough thrills from being in a high spot without the jump, take a guided tour over the largest bridge in Africa.

This Big Five private game reserve spans 5 ecosystems (valley bushveld, savannah grassland, fynbos, riverine forest and acacia woodland). Consisting of 7,500 hectares (approximately 18,500 acres), there are no public roads running through the reserve and all the animals including predators, are free-roaming. Experience a game drive in an open vehicle where you come face to face with a multitude of game.

Birds of Eden is the largest free flight bird aviary in the world and is a top eco-tourism attraction in the Garden Route of South Africa. The adventure of walking across the 128m suspension bridge, the longest one of its kind in Africa, above the forest canopy, is an unmissable venture.
