General Information

The beautiful City of George is surrounded by the Outeniqua mountains, forests, rivers, open sea and picturesque farmlands.  George has grown exponentially in the last 10 years with many South African’s choosing to rather settle here, and commute to larger metropolises.  Located on the magnificent Garden Route half-way between two major cities, Cape Town in the Western Cape and Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, George is an ideal stop-over.

The newly developed Eden Meander mall has brought in some chain store businesses and with that, job opportunities, as George gently expands its borders.

History enthusiasts will be interested to learn that George is the sixth oldest town in South Africa and has many historical landmarks to be visited:  The Slave Tree, an ancient English Oak planted by Landdrost van Kervel, King Edward VII Library building and the oldest Roman Catholic Church in the country. The Outeniqua Transport Museum houses replicas of old stations, displays of locomotives and coaches – well worth a visit!

The city has excellent road, air and rail links to all major centers within the country, and is a convenient base from which to explore the many attractions of the Garden Route and Klein Karoo.
