Great Brak River Info
Garden Route's Quaintest Village

Please Note:

This GBTI Project was last updated in 2017


Whether you would like to stay over in a beautiful lodge up on the hills, in a country cottage on a scenic farm, in a cosy B&B in the village, sleep in a room with a sea view or in tented accommodation at a backpackers venue … Great Brak and surrounds can offer it all.

In this area we specialize in cycle friendly and pet friendly accommodation, and wheelchair access is available at some of our venues.

Since this part of the Garden Route is one of the premium coastal holiday destinations, accommodation from December to January should be booked well in advance. However, from May to September quite a few specials are usually available – see our Facebook for details or e-mail
