About Us

WildernessGuide.co.za was founded by Mark Rouse (via his company “MJR Websites”) in 2017.  Mark is originally from the UK but now lives in Cape Town, a few hours drive along the southern African coastline from Wilderness.  He first fell in love with Wilderness when driving through it on holiday in South Africa’s Garden Route.

Mission Statement

Our mission statement at WildernessGuide.co.za is as follows:

  • To produce and maintain the ultimate online guide to Wilderness for tourists and potential tourists.
  • To establish and nurture a community for everyone with an interest in promoting Wilderness tourism.

In order to fund this website, we include affiliate links for you to make accommodation bookings through our partner booking.com. If you complete a booking through one of these links, we receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you). Our scores, reviews of accommodation and chosen recommendations are completely independent. We do not receive any incentive from accommodation providers to influence the score or the content of their accommodation page.
